Book Description to Finelybook sorting
With the current technological and infrastructural shift, penetration testing is no longer a process-oriented activity. Modern-day penetration testing demands lots of automation and innovation; the only language that dominates all its peers is Python. Given the huge number of tools written in Python, and its popularity in the penetration testing space, this language has always been the first choice for penetration testers.
Hands-On Penetration Testing with Python walks you through advanced Python programming constructs. Once you are familiar with the core concepts, you’ll explore the advanced uses of Python in the domain of penetration testing and optimization. You’ll then move on to understanding how Python, data science, and the cybersecurity ecosystem communicate with one another. In the concluding chapters, you’ll study exploit development, reverse engineering, and cybersecurity use cases that can be automated with Python.
By the end of this book, you’ll have acquired adequate skills to leverage Python as a helpful tool to pentest and secure infrastructure, while also creating your own custom exploits.

Furqan Khan is a security researcher who loves to innovate in Python, pentesting, ML, AI, and big data ecosystems.
With a gold medal at both M.Tech and B.Tech, he started off as a research scientist at NITK, where he developed a web app scanner for the Ministry of IT (India). He then worked as a security researcher with Paladion Networks and Wipro Dubai exploring pentesting/exploitation space where he developed tools such as vulnerability scanner and a threat intelligence platform.
Currently, he is working with Du-Telecom Dubai as a pentesting manager. He has published and co-authored white papers and journals with Springer and Elsevier, and has also presented his research and development work at international conferences, including CoCon.
