Hacking tools

To better understand—and, consequently, to better ensure—network security, it always pays to understand the tools of the attackers. Darknet lists 15 essential hacking tools:

NMAP
Nessus Remote Security Scanner
John the Ripper
Nikto
SuperScan
pof
ethereal
Yersinia
eraser
puTTY
lcp
Cain and Abel
kismet
hping
NetStumbler

How do you use these tools?

First, find a network to hack. Wardriving is one way, using a wireless network detector. Or access an internet cafe. Launch a packet sniffer. Capture packets. Use password cracker to decipher passwords.

All the tools mentioned above are open-source…and free.
