Top Tools Needed For Advanced Penetration Testing
  • What is Penetration Testing?
  • Penetration testing or pen testing is a method of
    evaluating security levels that are involved in
    the system or network. It can also be used to
    determine the flaws or defects related to
    hardware and software. If the flaws or defects
    are identified early, then this pen test can also
    be helpful in protecting the network, otherwise
    the attacker can easily find the source for
    intruding into the system. During the penetration
    testing, a pen tester analyses all the security
    measures like flaws in design, technical flaws
    and other vulnerabilities that are present in the
  • Why is Penetration Testing required?
  • Penetration Testing helps candidates to provide
    in-depth knowledge of following concepts
  • Launching an attack on latest operating systems
    like Windows and Linux
  • Picking proper system vulnerabilities that can be
    exploited by an attacker
  • Picking the vulnerabilities that exist in an
    unpatched operating system
  • Checking whether Intrusion Detection and
    Intrusion Prevention system is properly working
    so as to prevent the attack from malicious
  • Breaching the security of a network or system
  • Breaking into highly-organized security of the
    organization from outside
  • CCISO Certification

  • Tools covered in Advanced Penetration Testing
    (APT) Course
  • There are several tools that can be used in
    Advanced Penetration Testing (APT), which are as
  • Nessus  Nessus is a vulnerability scanner tool
    that is used to scan weaknesses in the system
    whenever an attacker attacks or tries to
    penetrate into the system. This tool is developed
    by Tenable, Inc. This tool can operate on any
    platform such as Windows, Mac and Linux. After
    scanning, the reports can be presented in plain
    text, XML, HTML and LaTeX.

  1. Dirbuster  Dirbuster is a multithreaded java
    application specially designed for brute force
    directories and files names on web
    applications/servers. Dirbuster has 9 different
    lists in total, which makes these tools very
    effective in finding hidden files and
    directories. Dirbuster also has a web server
    directory brute force

  • Metasploit  Metasploit is an open-source
    computer security tool used to find detailed
    information related to security vulnerabilities
    and it also aids in penetration testing. This
    tool is already installed on Kali Linux operating
    system. This tool is available in two versions
  • Metasploit Framework Edition
  • Metasploit Pro
  • Metasploit runs on Unix (including Linux), macOS
    and also on Windows operating systems.

  • Aircrack suite Aircrack suite is a complete set
    of tools used in Wifi network security. It sheds
    light on different areas of Wifi security
  • Monitoring Monitoring of packet capture and
    export of data to text files
  • Attacking Replay attacks, deauthentication, fake
    access points and others via packet injection
  • Testing Checking Wifi cards and driver
  • Cracking WEP and WPA PSK (WPA 1 and 2)
  • This is a command line tool which primarily works
    on Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD as
    well as on Solaris.

  1. Fluxion  Fluxion is a security auditing and
    social-engineering research tool. It is designed
    in such a way that it is used to retrieve
    WPA/WPA2 key from target access point by means of
    social engineering (phishing) attack. Fluxion
    attacks are mostly done manually, but
    experimental auto-mode handles some of the attack

  • OWASP ZAP ZAP (Zed Attack Proxy) is a tool used
    to scan vulnerabilities in web-applications or
    websites. It is a free and open-source tool. It
    is developed by OWASP (Open Web Application
    Security Project) and is one of the active
    projects. The GUI control panel is easy to use.
    Some of the built-features of this application
  • Intercepting Proxy Server
  • Traditional and AJAX Web crawlers
  • Automated scanner
  • Passive scanner

    that link of fake emails. Here, one can also
    check statistics of all the emails that are sent.
    It is an easy-to-use platform that can be run on
    Linux, macOS and Windows operating system.

  1. Responder  Responder is a powerful tool for
    quickly gaining credentials and is also used to
    gain remote access to a system. It is LLMNR,
    NBT-NS and MDNS poisoner that is easy to use and

    tool is also used for privacy protection.

  • Ettercap  Ettercap is a free and open source
    network security tool which mainly focuses on
    man-in-the-middle attacks taking place on LAN. It
    can also be used for computer network protocol
    analysis and security auditing. It is compatible
    on various Unix-like operating systems including

    on Windows operating system. Features of this
    tools are
  • IP based packets and MAC based packets are
  • ARP based
  • Public ARP based
  • HTTPS support
  • Packet filtering and dropping

  • Wrap up
  • Penetration Testing is where system
    vulnerabilities are being searched and analysed
    further to prevent the system from being attacked
    by the malicious intruder. So it is important to
    implement the defence-in-depth strategy so as to
    prevent the malicious intruder from penetrating
    into the system. The main advantage of
    Penetration Testing is the maximum optimisation
    of tools due to which system vulnerabilities can
    be found and analysed as quickly as possible and
    hence the  tools act as a backbone for
    Penetration Testing.
