What is Penetration Testing?
Pen testing, also known as penetration testing, is a method to assess the security of a system or network. It can also be used for identifying flaws and defects in hardware or software. This pen test can be very helpful in protecting the network if the flaws and defects are detected early. Otherwise, the attacker can easily find the source of the intrusion. During penetration testing, a pen tester analyzes all security measures, including flaws in design and technical flaws, that are present in the system.
Why is penetration testing necessary?
Candidates can use Penetration Testing to gain in-depth knowledge of the following concepts.
Attacking the latest operating systems, such as Windows and Linux
Picking the right system vulnerabilities that could be exploited to an attacker
How to identify the vulnerabilities in an unpatched operating environment
Verifying that Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention systems are properly functioning to prevent attacks from malicious intruders
Infringing on the security of a network/system
External intrusion into highly-organized security systems of the organization

Advanced Penetration Testing (APT), Course: Tools
Advanced Penetration Testing (APT) can be performed with a variety of tools, including the following:
Nessus: Nessus, a vulnerability scanner tool, is used to scan the system for weaknesses whenever an attacker attempts to penetrate the system. Tenable, Inc. developed this tool. This tool is compatible with all platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux. The reports can be presented as plain text, XML or HTML after scanning.
Dirbuster : Dirbuster is a multithreaded java application specially designed for brute force directories and files names on web applications/servers. Dirbuster uses 9 lists to find hidden files and directories. Dirbuster also offers a web server
