What is this book about?

It’s becoming more and more apparent that security is a critical aspect of IT infrastructure. A data breach is a major security incident, usually carried out by just hacking a simple network line. Increasing your network’s security helps step up your defenses against cyber attacks. Meanwhile, Python is being used for increasingly advanced tasks, with the latest update introducing many new packages. This book focuses on leveraging these updated packages to build a secure network with the help of Python scripting.

This book covers the following exciting features: Develop Python scripts for automating security and pentesting tasks Discover the Python standard library's main modules used for performing security-related tasks Automate analytical tasks and the extraction of information from servers Explore processes for detecting and exploiting vulnerabilities in servers Use network software for Python programming Perform server scripting and port scanning with Python Identify vulnerabilities in web applications with Python Use Python to extract metadata and forensics
