Pentesting with Backtrack
By Mathieu Nayrolles, Mathieu Schmitt, and Benoît Delorme
Penetration testing, also known as pentesting, is a technique to evaluate the security of computers and networks by performing imitating attacks from external and internal threats. The pentesting process involves static and dynamic analysis of a system/network in order to reveal potential security issues resulting from improper configurations or hardware/software flaws. These attacks should be executed from the point of view of potential attackers.

Multiphase Penetration Testing: Using BackTrack Linux, Metasploit and Armitage
By Lance Cleghorn
The EC Council identifies five stages of attack that are common to cyber penetration. These stages of attack may be used to categorize incidents where a network or a host has been compromised. Considering that these stages are common to real attacks, they are used by ethical hackers to conduct penetration testing. An ethical hacker or a white-hat hacker may use these steps in order, or may selectively choose the steps that work best for the particular vulnerability.
