Book Review: Black Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Pentesters
Black Hat Python is a clear winner in the field of books for security professionals. Written for people who want to move into the hacking and penetration testing fields and fully understand what they’re doing, this book will challenge readers to quickly come up to speed not just on how hackers work, but how to build their own tools. It contains plenty of examples that show exactly what one needs to do with code that builds on itself as you grow in skill, plus plenty of introductory material. Most chapters also include a “Kicking the Tires” section on putting the new tools to use. If you read this book cover-to-cover, you won’t come to the end of it without a deep understanding of how your systems work, why hacking is possible, and how you can build your own hacking and security testing tools with Python and add-on tools.
