This practical guide to penetration testing teaches would-be ethical hackers to scan for, identify, and analyze security vulnerabilities—readying readers for the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) exam

The Penetration Tester's Handbook: The First Steps to CEH Certification is designed to advance the knowledge, skills, and techniques of the ethical hacker. The book begins with a review of information security theory and goes on to fully cover the tools and techniques of penetration and vulnerability testing. Hands-on exercises are included throughout the handbook to reinforce the information presented and to develop your skills.

Upon finishing this handbook, you will be ready to practice independently to hone your penetration testing skills—and to work toward obtaining the Certified Ethical Hacker designation. The personal penetration testing lab, for which set-up instructions are included, will aid you beyond the book and serve as a resource for additional practice and study.

  • Bridges the knowledge and experience gap that exists between the CompTIA Security+ certification and the more advanced CEH certification
  • Features more than 30 realistic step-by-step practice exercises
