 About the Book 

Grey Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers aims not only to explain how to use publicly available tools written in Python, to help find software vulnerabilities, but also how to develop your own tools. Python is becoming the programmingMoreGrey Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers aims not only to explain how to use publicly available tools written in Python, to help find software vulnerabilities, but also how to develop your own tools. Python is becoming the programming language of choice for hackeds, reverse engineers and software testers. In this book, the author examines the different libraries that help the programmer to developed their own software to test for vulnerabilities as Weill as exploiting that software. Python can be used to assist in security testing and analyzing software. This is the first book to cover the usage of Python specifically for hackers. The author will cover and discuss topics such as: How use python oriented debuggers to detect software vulnerabilities Quick creation of powerful fuzzers and the use of python oriented fuzzers The use of open source python libraries to develop tools to automate tedious tasks such as port scanning, sniffing and vulnerability assessment. Tools development to test for web application security issues Develop exploits in python using open source tools.
