Using scripting in pen testing: CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-001): 6 Using Scripting in Pen Testing

Pen testing can be mundane and tedious work, which can cause people to lose track and make mistakes. Scripting helps document the process while automating the workflow and cutting down on errors. In this episode, you can learn about four different scripting programs: Bash (Bourne Again Shell), PowerShell, Ruby, and Python. Familiarize yourself with variables, substitutions, common operations, logic, basic I/O, error handling, arrays, and encoding/decoding.
