5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, well structured and gripping read, 20 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Unauthorised Access: Physical Penetration Testing for IT Security Teams (Paperback)
This book is written from the perspective of a penetration tester, a security professional hired to "break-in" to companies to test their physical and IT security. To summarise, this book is fantastic. It is packed full of great practical information with no wasted narrative. Inside you will find chapters on social engineering, bypassing the security/reception areas of buildings, lockpicking, wireless hacking and lots, lots more. Throughout, the author provides step by step instructions and what tools or software are needed at various stages (he even provides all the links to download them). This is nothing short of a bible on penetration testing. Because of the sheer amount of information packed into the book, it might not go into the depth of detail you are interested in but it will definitely motivate you to find out more about the area that interests you. Near the end of the book, the author even gives some real world examples of some "jobs" he undertook and the challenges he faced at every turn. These were fascinating examples of real world scenarios showing that the penetration tester used a combination of social engineering, hacking and physical breaking and entering to achieve his goal. This one is staying on my shelf as a nice reference manual. A definite must for anyone interested in physical or IT security, auditing or someone interested in getting into the security industry.
