Learn how to use Vega to be a proxy and enable monitoring of HTML requests to and from the web site.
- [Voiceover] We can actively test a website with Vega…by monitoring the traffic flowing between the browser…and the website…and looking for security issues…and test for issues with error handling…by manipulating request data.…This is known as proxy mode operation…because we configure our browser…to send http requests to Vega,…which will then send them on to the internet.…Likewise the responses will return to Vega…and Vega will pass them back to our browser.…This lets a pen tester review the full request…and response information to decide…whether there are any security concerns.…
If there are,…they can be investigated…as to whether they're exploitable.…To use proxy mode,…we need to configure Iceweasel to connect to the internet…via Vega.…Firstly, let's check what proxy port…Vega expects to listen on.…Let's open Window, Preferences,…and Expand the proxy item.…If we click on Listener,…we can see that Vega listens on port 888…for outgoing web traffic.…We could change this,…but it's fine as we can configure Iceweasel the same way.…
This course will give prospective ethical hackers a short overview of the tools in Kali Linux. Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore shows how to set up a virtual environment for testing, configure Kali Linux, and install toolsets for information gathering, vulnerability assessment, password and hash cracking, and target exploitation.
Because businesses are connected, they are also exposed. Vulnerability testing helps organizations limit that exposure. This course will help you explore the careers, techniques, and tools behind ethical hacking—one of the most competitive and sought-after IT security skills.
