Google is the most popular search engine ever created, but Google’s search capabilities are so powerful, they sometimes discover content that no one ever intended to be publicly available on the Web, including social security numbers, credit card numbers, trade secrets, and federally classified documents. Google Hacking for Penetration Testers, Third Edition, shows you how security professionals and system administratord manipulate Google to find this sensitive information and "self-police" their own organizations. You will learn how Google Maps and Google Earth provide pinpoint military accuracy, see how bad guys can manipulate Google to create super worms, and see how they can "mash up" Google with Facebook, LinkedIn, and more for passive reconnaissance. This third edition includes completely updated content throughout and all new hacks such as Google scripting and using Google hacking with other search engines and APIs. Noted author Johnny Long, founder of Hackers for Charity, gives you all the tools you need to conduct the ultimate open source reconnaissance and penetration testing. Third edition of the seminal work on Google hacking Google hacking continues to be a critical phase of reconnaissance in penetration testing and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Features cool new hacks such as finding reports generated by security scanners and back-up files, finding sensitive info in WordPress and SSH configuration, and all new chapters on scripting Google hacks for better searches as well as using Google hacking with other search engines and APIs

Great commercial penetration testing tools can be very expensive and sometimes hard to use or of questionable accuracy. This book helps solve both of these problems. The open source, no-cost penetration testing tools presented do a great job and can be modified by the user for each situation. Many tools, even ones that cost thousands of dollars, do not come with any type of instruction on how and in which situations the penetration tester can best use them. Penetration Tester's Open Source Toolkit, Third Edition, expands upon existing instructions so that a professional can get the most accurate and in-depth test results possible. Real-life scenarios are a major focus so that the reader knows which tool to use and how to use it for a variety of situations. Details current open source penetration testing tools Presents core technologies for each type of testing and the best tools for the job New to this edition: Enterprise application testing, client-side attacks and updates on Metasploit and Backtrack

In each section, it defines each domain. The first domain provides information about risk analysis and mitigation, and it discusses security governance. The second domain discusses techniques of access control, which is the basis for all security disciplines. The third domain explains the concepts behind cryptography, which is a secure way of communicating that is understood only by certain recipients. Domain 5 discusses security system design, which is fundamental in operating the system and software security components. Domain 6 is one of the critical domains in the Common Body of Knowledge, the Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery Planning. It is the final control against extreme events such as injury, loss of life, or failure of an organization. Domain 7, Domain 8 and Domain 9 discuss telecommunications and network security, application development security, and the operations domain, respectively.
