Overview of this book

This book starts with the basics of ethical hacking, how to practice hacking safely and legally, and how to install and interact with Kali Linux and the Linux terminal. You will explore network hacking, where you will see how to test the security of wired and wireless networks. You’ll also learn how to crack the password for any Wi-Fi network (whether it uses WEP, WPA, or WPA2) and spy on the connected devices. Moving on, you will discover how to gain access to remote computer systems using client-side and server-side attacks. You will also get the hang of post-exploitation techniques, including remotely controlling and interacting with the systems that you compromised. Towards the end of the book, you will be able to pick up web application hacking techniques. You'll see how to discover, exploit, and prevent a number of website vulnerabilities, such as XSS and SQL injections. The attacks covered are practical techniques that work against real systems and are purely for educational purposes. At the end of each section, you will learn how to detect, prevent, and secure systems from these attacks.

IP forwarding

Now, in this part, we'll learn how to configure the router so that it forwards incoming connections to the Kali machine. This will mean we can receive reverse connections, we can hook people to the BeEF browser, and launch attacks outside the network the same way that we used to launch them inside the network. To get to the router settings, usually the routers IP is the first IP in the subnet, our IP was 192.168.0.11, usually, the router is the first one, so it will be 192.168.0.1. Also, another way to get it is to type in route -n command, and that will show us where the gateway is. As we can see in the following screenshot, the gateway is at 192.168.0.1. The following is the local IP address of the router:

We're going to browse the IP 192.168.0.1 in our browser. To do so, just type the address in the address bar and hit Enter, and as we can see in the...
