Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Refreshing your Python skills, part of Penetration Testing Essential Training.
- [Teacher] Python is an interpretive programming language…and the interpreter can be found for both Windows and Linux…at the main Python site shown here.…There are various versions of Python…and scripts are not always compatible.…So modifying Python scripts that you…may pick up to do testing is sometimes necessary.…You'll need to install Python on Windows,…but it comes built in to most Linux distributions.…We'll use Carly to refresh ourselves on Python.…One of the useful documents to have when programming…in Python is the library reference,…which provides details of all the built in calls…that you can make to do things in Python.…
As a pen tester,…you'll be using the networking calls extensively.…There are graphical interfaces for Python,…but for our purposes, we'll run at the command line.…Once you've got Python installed,…you check it's working by entering the command python.…This will put you in the interactive interpreter.…You can enter commands here…and get the response immediately.…And you can use control D to quit.…
Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore reviews popular pen testing tools, as well as the Bash and Python scripting skills required to be able to acquire, modify, and re-use exploit code. He also provides a refresher on Kali Linux and introduces techniques for testing web services. At the end of this course, you'll be prepared to take more advanced training, and to pursue the popular Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification.
