Interview with the Authors of Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux

Penetration Testing
A network penetration test is a proactive and authorized attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely attempting to exploit system vulnerabilities, including OS, service and application flaws, improper configurations, and even risky end-user behavior. Unlike a network penetration test, a web application penetration testing focuses on the security and potential risks within web-based applications.

Kali Linux is a Linux distribution designed for security practitioners specializing in digital forensics and penetration testing. It is maintained and funded by Offensive Security and was developed by Mati Aharoni and Devon Kearns through the rewrite of BackTrack.

You can obtain a free company of Kali Linux here.
In my professional career, I have used Kali Linux (BackTrack) to test the security posture of many organizations, so that is why I was so excited and trill to get my hands on this book and conduct a detailed book review.

In addition, I had the opportunity to interview both Aamir Lakhani and Joseph Muniz, the authors of “Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux” by Packt Publishing about their book, techniques, methods, tips and the state of Information Security.

Hear what they had to say:
