Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
From elicitation, pretexting, influence and manipulation all aspects of social engineering are picked apart, discussed and explained by using real world examples, personal experience and the science behind them to unraveled the mystery in social engineering.
Kevin Mitnick—one of the most famous social engineers in the world—popularized the term “social engineering.” He explained that it is much easier to trick someone into revealing a password for a system than to exert the effort of hacking into the system. Mitnick claims that this social engineering tactic was the single–most effective method in his arsenal. This indispensable book examines a variety of maneuvers that are aimed at deceiving unsuspecting victims, while it also addresses ways to prevent social engineering threats.
- Examines social engineering, the science of influencing a target to perform a desired task or divulge information
- Arms you with invaluable information about the many methods of trickery that hackers use in order to gather information with the intent of executing identity theft, fraud, or gaining computer system access
- Reveals vital steps for preventing social engineering threats
Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking does its part to prepare you against nefarious hackers—now you can do your part by putting to good use the critical information within its pages.

This book covers, in detail, the world′s first framework for social engineering. It defines, explains, and dissects each principle, then illustrates it with true stories and case studies from masters such as Kevin Mitnick, renowned author of The Art of Deception. You will discover just what it takes to excel as a social engineer. Then you will know your enemy.

"Most malware and client–side attacks have a social engineering component to deceive the user into letting the bad guys in. You can patch technical vulnerabilities as they evolve, but there is no patch for stupidity, or rather gullibility. Chris will show you how it′s done by revealing the social engineering vectors used by today′s intruders. His book will help you gain better insight on how to recognize these types of attacks."
Kevin Mitnick, Author, Speaker, and Consultant

Le livre (en anglais) se veut bien structuré et simple dans son approche. Plus qu'un ensemble de "trucs et astuces", il présente les mécanismes sociologiques et psychologiques de la discipline à travers plusieurs chapitres (récupération d'informations, élicitation, techniques de communication non-verbale, etc.) ainsi que des cas d'études réelles (comme ceux de Kevin Mitnick).
Un ouvrage que je recommande pour comprendre les mécanismes de l'ingénierie sociale et prendre conscience que dans la chaine de l'infrastructure numérique, l'humain et son envie de collaborer sont [pratiquement] toujours les maillons faibles.
Vraiment un bouquin à lire si rien que le sujet vous intéresse.

In fact I recommend this book to anyone who has even the slightest concern about their Personal Information and how people can gain access to it.
The seller Hippo Books does not provide tracking information, and sets a wide arrivel date.
I have also found this book to be particularly stimulating, and indeed even an intellectual curiosity. I believe that Chris is undertaking a sizable social engineering project, in which he is using the opportunity to teach social engineering to actually effect positive and permanent change on the reader (and "coincidentally" enough, this is precisely one of the goals for social engineering that Chris mentions). One can glean that Chris is a master of the art he teaches based on what he has written, and how he has written it. This book itself is a phenomenal experiment in social engineering in which Chris actually helps to make people more caring and empathetic towards others. The idea that one should truly care about others and work on developing true concern, empathy, and listening skill is sprinkled throughout the text in the beginning (pre-loading the reader), and then explicitly declared later on in the guise of becoming a better social engineer. At no point though did I feel as though this message was in any way artificial. It comes across very genuine, and I believe his recommendation truly will make the reader a better social engineer, and a better person. It is clear (to me at least) that Chris is either a psychopathic, wholly evil genius freak who takes pleasure in manipulating others, or he has an amazing understanding of the human mind as a result of his dedication to study and practice, and he truly cares for others and wants to effect positive change in them. I am fully convinced that it is the latter. I believe that a lack of empathy and true compassion is a serious problem in modern society, made worse as technology continues to eliminate the need for physical interaction between people. Chris is clearly using his talents to make the world a better place, and for that I want to thank him heartily.
Interpret this as you will. I have never met Chris and I know nothing about him other than what I've learned from reading his book. If I've been duped then that is a testament to Chris' skill and mastery of the subject. If I haven't been duped, then take my recommendation and buy this book! Even if you aren't looking to make a career in security auditing, this book will help you communicate better in all aspects of your life. (You may even be able to convince your wife to have dinner at that awesome steak joint).
