In this book Wil Allsopp has created a thorough reference for those looking to advance into the area of physical penetration testing. The book also serves as a guidebook for in-house security managers seeking to institute better policy safeguards.” – From the Foreword, by Kevin Mitnick

Most IT security teams concentrate on keeping networks and systems safe from the outside – usually with the entire focus on firewalls, server configuration, application security, intrusion detection systems, and the like. But what if your attacker was on the inside? What if they were sitting at an employee’s computer, or placing a wireless access point hidden in a wiring closet or even roaming inside your server room?

Unauthorised Access provides the first guide to planning and performing physical penetration tests. Inside, IT security expert Wil Allsopp guides you through the entire process from gathering intelligence, getting inside, dealing with threats, staying hidden (often in plain sight) and getting access to networks and data. Learn to think like an attacker with topics that include:

  • Types of target vs level of anticipated response
  •  Dealing with guards
  •  Intelligence tradecraft, satellite imagery and in depth information gathering
  •  Planting bugs and covert wireless access points
  •  Hacking security cameras
  •  Strategic, tactical and operational planning
  •  Defeating locks, electronic keypads and other electronic access systems
  •  Social engineering - the weakest link
  •  Using your “Get Out of Jail Free” card
  •  Complying with local laws
  •  Attacking wireless networks
