From time to time, during security audits, we might encounter a situation where security is handled correctly.
Security patches, policies, network segmentation, antivirus, and consumer awareness are all being appropriately implemented.
To be able to continue the audit from the perspective of a safety researcher or consultant, social engineering will be your trump card.
The main vulnerability being the people that may permit an attacker to penetrate the target system.
The following gadgets are pieces of hardware developed for pen-testers.
So here are three tools every single white-hat hacker needs:
#1 Rubber Ducky:
This is a type of “bad USB”; specifically, a device that functions as a programmed computer keyboard in the form of a USB drive.
When you plug into a computer, it begins writing automatically to launch apps and tools which might either be on the victim computer or loaded on the drive’s onboard Micro SD, to be able to extract information.
#2 Raspberry Pi:
No, it’s not edible. The Raspberry Pi is a small computer motherboard that can be leveraged in various methods.
A good example in security audits is to utilize a Raspberry Pi with its proper battery pack, a distribution platform such as Kali Linux, and software like FruityWifi, which collectively act like the Swiss army knife of pen-testing.
#3 WiFi Pineapple:
This is a set of tools for wireless penetration tests is quite helpful for a variety of attacks, such as the man-in-the-middle attack.
Through an intuitive web interface, it lets you connect with any device, like a smartphone or a tablet computer.
It’s stand out features are its ease of use, workflow management, the detailed information it offers, and various sorts of attacks it provides.
The WiFi Pineapple houses many terrific modules that are always being developed by the user community, thus incorporating new features that expand its range of attacks.
The best part is that these modules can be installed free of charge directly through the web interface in a matter of seconds.
