How to use Python for Ethical Hacking

This article understands how to use Python for Ethical hacking. Python can be combined with Scapy which is a packet crafting framework to develop custom tools and scripts for ethical hacking and network engineering. A example to build a mac-spoofer tool with Python and scapy is explained below along with the source code.

Mac-spoofing is a technique by which an attacker spoofs the source mac-address of the device and sends it with a spoofed mac-address.

Step 1

Install Python and Scapy on a Linux system.

Step 2

Create a Python file along with the source code as shown in the screenshot below

The code uses scapy to build a custom ping packet with mac-address as input taken from the user.

Step 3

Run the code. The code takes the spoofed mac-address and destination IP address as input from the user and sends it to the intended recipient.
