Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers

Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Python is fast becoming the programming language of choice for hackers, reverse engineers, and software testers because it's easy to write quickly, and it has the low-level support and libraries that make hackers happy. But until now, there has been no real manual on how to use Python for a variety of hacking tasks. You had to dig through forum posts and man pages, endlessly tweaking your own code to get everything working. Not anymore.

Gray Hat Python explains the concepts behind hacking tools and techniques like debuggers, trojans, fuzzers, and emulators. But author Justin Seitz goes beyond theory, showing you how to harness existing Python-based security tools - and how to build your own when the pre-built ones won't cut it.

You'll learn how to:

  • Automate tedious reversing and security tasks
  • Design and program your own debugger
  • Learn how to fuzz Windows drivers and create powerful fuzzers from scratch
  • Have fun with code and library injection, soft and hard hooking techniques, and other software trickery
  • Sniff secure traffic out of an encrypted web browser session
  • Use PyDBG, Immunity Debugger, Sulley, IDAPython, PyEMU, and more

The world's best hackers are using Python to do their handiwork. Shouldn't you?

Book News Annotation:

Python has become the preferred programming language for hackers, reverse engineers and software testers, and this guide for security-oriented programmers describes the debuggers, Trojans, fuzzers and emulators that are not clearly explained in existing low-level support services and libraries. Seitz is a senior security researcher for a software firm, and he explains how to use such Python applications as IDAPython, PyDbg, Immunity Debugger, Sulley and PyEmu. Code and library injection, debugger programming, the automation of reversing and security tasks and soft and hard hooking techniques are also explained in detail.

Synopsis:

Python is the high-level language of choice for hacking, vulnerability discovery, and security research. "Gray Hat Python," the first Python book written for advanced security analysts, explains the intricacies of using Python to assist in a range of security analysis tasks. Readers learn how to design and program their own debuggers, create powerful fuzzers, utilize open source libraries to automate tedious tasks, and interface with commercial and non-commercial security tools. "Gray Hat Python" covers everything from the nuts and bolts of how to use the language for basic code and DLL injection to using Python to analyze binaries and disassemble software. It also discusses a variety of open source Python tools (such as PyDbg, PaiMei, PyEmu, Sulley, and Immunity Debugger) and how to extend them. Fundamentally a security book, "Gray Hat Python" reveals just how superior the Python language is when it comes to hacking, reverse engineering, malware analysis and software testing.
