The Linux environment is the ideal platform for security auditors and penetration testers because of the enormous artillery it provides them with.
Take Kali Linux for example, the Debian-based Linux distro born 10 years ago that is specially designed for digital forensics and penetration testing comes with a ton of prepackaged hacker tools including Aircrack-ng, Kismet, Nmap, Wireshark, and Metasploit Framework among others.
The OS doesn’t come with non-essential applications like Gimp and LibreOffice which mainstream Linux distros provide – making it arguably the perfect environment for those who want to concentrate on delving into the world of computer security and hacking.
It is therefore with an assurance of quality that we introduce to you the Kali Linux Wireless Penetration Testing: Beginner’s Guide (by authors, Vivek Ramachandran and Cameron Buchanan) – the ideal manual to get you up and running with not just Wireless Penetration Testing, but also Kali Linux.
