In Black Hat Go, you'll learn how to write powerful and effective penetration testing tools in Go, a language revered for its speed and scalability. Start off with an introduction to Go fundamentals like data types, control structures, and error handling; then, dive into the deep end of Go’s offensive capabilities as you learn how to:

  • Write a simple TCP proxy to use concurrency for non-parallel tasks
  • Create HTTP clients to perform common web interactions
  • Write a custom DNS server and proxy
  • Sniff and process packets using the gopacket library
  • Create extendable tools to expand program functionality
  • Write your own exploits with the help of insider techniques

Black Hat Go will show you how to build powerful security tools to pen test huge networks, fast.
