The first guide to planning and performing a physical penetration test on your computer's security

Most IT security teams concentrate on keeping networks and systems safe from attacks from the outside-but what if your attacker was on the inside? While nearly all IT teams perform a variety of network and application penetration testing procedures, an audit and test of the physical location has not been as prevalent. IT teams are now increasingly requesting physical penetration tests, but there is little available in terms of training. The goal of the test is to demonstrate any deficiencies in operating procedures concerning physical security.

Featuring a Foreword written by world-renowned hacker Kevin D. Mitnick and lead author of The Art of Intrusion and The Art of Deception, this book is the first guide to planning and performing a physical penetration test. 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.

  • Teaches IT security teams how to break into their own facility in order to defend against such attacks, which is often overlooked by IT security teams but is of critical importance
  • Deals with intelligence gathering, such as getting access building blueprints and satellite imagery, hacking security cameras, planting bugs, and eavesdropping on security channels
  • Includes safeguards for consultants paid to probe facilities unbeknown to staff
  • Covers preparing the report and presenting it to management

In order to defend data, you need to think like a thief-let Unauthorised Access show you how to get inside.

From the Back Cover:

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

About the Author:

Wil Allsopp (Netherlands) is an IT security expert who has provided security audits for some of the largest companies in the UK including top tier banking, government and most of the Fortune 100. His job requires him to be part hacker, and part thief as companies hire him to probe their security measures to the extreme.
