Python: Digital Forensics & Binary Exploits with Python Download
Solve real-world forensics problems with innovative solutions
What you’ll learn
Learn network forensics to drive your host analysis
Investigate with the utmost efficiency in Windows and GNU/Linux environments
Get the best tools to obtain and analyze volatile memory images
Use Python to complete enumeration, exploitation, and data exfiltration
Remove unwanted code such as the password or product key tests, and add Trojan code
Analyze simple Windows executable files and modify them using the Immunity Debugger
Analyze simple Linux executable files and modify them using the gdb debugger
Prior programming experience with python is beneficial but not required.
Python is uniquely positioned as a programming language to perform cyber investigations and perform forensic analysis. Unleash the power of Python by using popular libraries and Python tools to help you create efficient and thorough forensics investigations.
This learning path follows a practical approach & can be of utmost importance as it guides you to read, sort, and sniff raw packets and also analyze network traffic. You will learn various tools required to perform a complete investigation with the utmost efficiency in both Windows and GNU/Linux environments with Python. It then explains binary exploits that allow you to skip past unwanted code, such as the password or product key tests, and add Trojan code. You will perform the exploit development process: finding a vulnerability, analyzing a crash in a debugger, creating a crafted attack, and achieving remote code execution on Windows and Linux.
By the end of the course, you will be able to make the most of Python processes and tackle varied, challenging, forensics-related problems. So, grab this course and think like an attacker!
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Python Digital Forensics starts with network forensics, an important aspect of any investigation. You will learn to read, sort, and sniff raw packets and also analyze network traffic. These techniques will help you drive your host analysis. You will learn about tools you’ll need to perform a complete investigation with the utmost efficiency in both Windows and GNU/Linux environments with Python. Next, you will learn more advanced topics such as viewing data in PE and ELF binaries. It’s vital to analyze volatile memory during an investigation as it provides details about what is actually running on a given system.
