I recently was tapped to begin standing up a penetration testing capability within my team. I’m new to penetration testing, but was very excited to be offered the opportunity.
My employer has asked me to put together a list of proposed equipment / software licenses that would help facilitate this line of work. There is an expectation that we’ll primarily be working with Industrial Control Systems and their components.
Again, because I’m new to penetration testing, I’m not altogether certain what kinds of hardware/software I might need yet; however, my initial thoughts have included:
* Burpsuite Pro
* Dedicated password cracking rig
* Assorted USB drives
* USB wifi adapters
I’m not experienced with hardware or RF hacking (OSCP focuses on network pentesting), but I’m open to learning.
I’d appreciate and welcome suggestions for me to research and consider adding to the budget proposal.
