    I just answered a question from someone on another forum about books that would help them while learning ethical hacking. The course is great, but after finishing you may still have some questions. So I found 2 lists of books that I feel would be great to look into.

    But first I suggest reading this 12 page PDF by C.C. Palmer to get better acquainted with ethical hacking, especially if you’re just getting started.

    Below are the book lists. I hope these help someone out.

    List 1
    List 2

    One more note: If you haven’t watched the Cisco Talos presentation on emerging threat trends, I would highly suggest it.

    @prabhu3705 : what do you mean? whatever kind of hacking… apart from the intent, they are the same.

    Try out “The Hacker’s Manual(2015)” it is also a useful resource. And thanks for the above list too.

    One of the best books I’ve read on hacking is Counterhack Reloaded by Ed Skoudis

    I did the ec council CEH and my instructor said that he could teach the whole course from “Hacking Exposed” (currently version 7). It gives a good general overview with a few case studies to illustrate real world scenarios.

    Good lists. Books are one of the best things to use when learning in this area.

    For CEH additional study, the All-in-One CEH exam guide (2nd edition) by Matt Walker is very informative and well presented.

    Good lists ZeroSuitSnake.
    I would like to The Hacker Playbook to that list as well. It’s a good read, full of inspiring ideas.

    What I love most about it though, is that this book doesn’t go through the “the fases of pentesting” explaining every single one in detail and how to scan a network using Nmap. In stead it takes a practical approach from someone who’s clearly done this often and explains some out of the box ways to perform a pentest in certain situations.

    I’ve used his book often in the way he describes it in the intro: you find yourself stuck in a situation and need a few specific options to get out of it. Great stuff!
