Many functions within a penetration test are routine and using a script to automate portions of the engagement can provide a consistent, repeatable and auditable process. This presentation will begin with a walk through of the command-line switches of a couple well-known tools that aid automation. By the end of the hour, attendees will have an automation script that they can use to run their own tests and grow to incorporate more of their own tools and methodology.

Timothy McKenzie teaches SANS SEC542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking to students all over the world.
