Sockets The standard way to communicate on a network with the use of computer operating systems is a socket. A socket is used by a programmer to create a way to send and receive data using the layers of the OSI. There are two types of sockets: a Stream Socket and a Datagram Socket.
The OSI Model is described in great detail with some images in the book that make it easy to understand. Network Sniffing Switched and unswitched networks exist in networking. A switched network uses devices called switches that analyze and tell the packets travelling on the network where their endpoint is. An unswitched network is a free flow of packets without them being stopped and analyzed. Sniffing refers to using a program that allows you to see packets on the network and where they are going.
Denial of Service A denial of service attack is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. This means that the denial of service attack sends a large quantity of communication requests to an intended resource in order to overflow the resource so that it becomes unusable for a certain period of time.
These types of attacks are usually directed at routers or firewalls in order to shut them down to gain access to other computers on the network. A router is very susceptible to these types of attacks but a firewall can usually handle the attack and is unaffected. A distributed denial of service attack is when communication requests come from multiple computers, greatly increasing the number of requests over a regular denial of service attack.
This technique is mainly used to collect passwords when a host machine uses a password to be connected to. When this type of attack takes place the victim and the attacker must be on the same network. Port Scanning Port scanning is simply a way to figure out which ports are accepting and listening to connections.
The hacker would just use a program that lets him know which ports are open by scanning all the ports on a network and trying to open them. Reach Out and Hack Someone This part is about finding vulnerabilities in the typecasting of the network.
Using a debugger to go through lines of code which are used for network protocols is the most efficient way to accomplish this.
It is like the hacker's own code that he wants to run when he gains control over a program. Usually a hacker will find an exploit in a programs code and be able to insert some of his own code shellcode where he found the exploit. Assembly vs. C Assembly differs from C because assembly is a low-level programming language and when processed can communicate directly with the processor. When using C, which is a high-level programming language, the code must be compiled and sent to the kernel by making a system call and then making a call to the processor.
In other words, it is almost like taking the system calling to the kernel out of the picture when using assembly. There are many examples of code in the book and ways to accomplish this task.
Self-spawning shellcode Spawning shellcode is code that will be enabled when an exploit is found. It is shellcode that will be able to be run when a vulnerability is found in the program. The best way to accomplish this is shown in the book and by making sure the code is very small.
Port-binding shellcode This type of shellcode attaches itself to a network port. Once bound to a port it will listen for a TCP connection. After it finds the TCP connection there is a lot more programming involved and is shown vividly in the book.
Connect-back shellcode This type of shellcode is mainly used when getting around firewalls. Most firewalls are going to block port-binding shellcode from working because they are set up to only allow known services through the active ports. Connect-back shellcode initiates the connection back to the hacker's IP address so it will be coming out from the firewall instead of going into it.
Once again the code in the book depicts connect-back with the use of shellcode and ways to accomplish this. Countermeasures That Detect An administrator of the network has to be aware of when an exploit may be occurring. Using certain tools like reading logs or packet sniffing on the network are a few ways to catch exploits when they occur. System Daemons A System Daemon is a server program on a Unix system which receives and accepts incoming connections.
A daemon is a program which runs in the background and detaches from controlling the terminal in a certain way. At this point in the book there is some code shown on how to run a daemon program.
Signals are also used in a Unix-based environment to make operating system calls. When a signal is type in the terminal it will immediately send an interrupt message to complete the task of whatever the signal was which was typed.
The uses of signals are displayed in some coding examples in the book. Tools of the Trade A hacker has a certain set of tools that he needs to help him when exploiting. An exploit script is a tool in which uses already written exploit code to find holes in the system or program.
Using exploit scripts is easy for even a non-hacker to use because the code is already written in it. A couple exams of some exploit tools are shown in the book and how to use them. Log Files As stated earlier log files are a way to check events that have been happening on a computer or network. For a hacker, having the ability to change what the log file says can help him not to be noticed.
First thing's first! You should throughly understand and familiarize yourself not only with the technical, engineering specifications, but also the actual vendor specific implementations of said specifications. You actually need full master of the complete set of protocols that make up the suite and familiarity with the actual vendor implementations.
This is the real key! Without networking then the realm of security in general is largely irreverent! You need to understand operating systems; namely, Unix and Windows. Although OS attacks are continually in decline while application based attacks are more common you still need to understand the systems themselves. This is why sysadmin experience is so useful. Once you really start to understand how these systems work then you can work into non-essential applications built on those systems like browsers.
One thing that pentesters love to do in the field if they can is gaining access once they've foot-printed, scanned, enumerated, etc specifically though security software like AV. There is no better feeling in the world than pwning someone via the very software they use to secure themselves. Programming skills aren't really required per say in the field, though they can be certainly be helpful in situations like examining source for bugs or exploit development, etc.
But that stuff is a long ways away for someone just wanting to get started. What is important is programming skills in the sense of scripting languages like bash, perl or python. Again, another obvious benefit of sysadmin experience. Once you get to this point, where you comfortable enough with networking, operating systems and scripting- sysadmin stuff in general, then you should then and only then move on to playing with tools everyone is so eager to get their hands on. In order to get actual hands on, practical experience in some of the offensive tactics involved in pen testing you need to do so with great caution because you could seriously get yourself into a lot of trouble.
I would suggest looking for a local hacker space you could get involved with. There you find group CTF exercises and isolated simulation environments that are safe to experiment on.
If you can't find a hacker space then there are many books on the topic of setting up your own practice environments.. If you have the money, then seeking out professional instruction is a major plus and advantage. Even when you think you know a lot about something, you will surprised how much you learn.
Plus, you will get the chance to meet other like minded individuals and of course prepare yourself for professional certification.
If you can afford it, my recommendation would be to get into college. I know there are a lot of self-taught people in this field, but having a degree is a valuable thing to have and also will help you with your path.
If you are curious and you are into videos there are many hacking conferences which might interest you. Check out this website with a lot of them: Many of these videos can be found on YouTube.
Good luck and never stop learning! I always enjoy a long read. I'll start reading that today along with the linux basics one!
Thank you for taking the time to reply. Have a good week. If you're versatile with Python, I would recommend the following books: Topic: Applied Security with python, See below.
What kind of Computer science course did you take? Haha alright, done with this resource pile.
