Python for Information Security Professionals

Black Hat Python for Penetration Testers and Hackers
Write and implement Python Scripts to Pentest Linux and Windows Machines

Description: Scripting is one of the essential skills that are required by every penetration tester as it significantly helps them to automate the task, write inhouse exploits, and to develop special scripts to discover security issues in the different layers. Many programming languages can be used by ethical hackers, but why Python?

Python has become one of the best choices for every penetration tester as it is simple yet comes with a wide variety of libraries that are designed for security testing such as core impact, Python Nmap, scapy, mona etc. Additionally, Python provides hackers with a library that allows Pentesters systems to have low-level interaction with other devices over a network.

Finally, Python is widely used in many areas such as AI and data science. So learning Python allows you to combine these domains with your hacking skills to become a world-class penetration tester empowered by scripting.

Who this course is for: Pen testers, security enthusiasts and network administrators who want to automate tasks in Python. Basic knowledge of Python is assumed
