It’s very difficult for the beginner security analyst, mainly the ones interested in the area of pentesting, to find good study pentesting resources. Starting from the principle that in pentesting there are many other sub areas of study, it becomes more and more difficult to choose and then find a proper pentesting study application.
As the beginner knows nearly nothing it became very difficult to prepare a Home Pentesting Lab for study, once that beginners has to know something about coding a vulnerable application fisrt, then exploit them.
Thinking about that i’ve decided to gather a list, the most complete I could, with all vulnerable pentesting tools I could find. They are categorized based on the type of application like Web Pentesting, War Games and Insecure Distributions. Due to the amount of tools I won’t be doing any previews because it would delay this post a lot and make it a little boring to read. I’m gonna review every tool with complete labs later on in future posts.
