This book is designed to give readers of all backgrounds and experience levels a well-researched and engaging introduction to the fascinating realm of network security. With real-world examples that reflect today?s most important and relevant security topics, Penetration Testing will address how and why people attack computers and networks, so that readers can be armed with the knowledge and techniques to successfully combat hackers. Because the world of information security changes so quickly and is often the subject of much hype, this book also aims to provide a clear differentiation between hacking myths and hacking facts. Straightforward in its approach, this valuable resource teaches the skills needed to go from hoping a system is secure to knowing that it is.
