the most used ethical hacking tools. The world of white hat hacking has spread throughout computing, the skills hackers need apart from all the software tools, applications, operating systems they use.
These tools that I will show will be for educational purposes. If you learn to use them, hopefully it will be to learn how not to violate your information, since in any illegal objective you have, we are not responsible, as explained FileTech is also an educational project

Ettercap is one of my favorite tools, It is used to make an attack known as Man in the middle (Man in the middle in Spanish) In other words, it is used to listen to other machines on the network and see the packets and protocols they navigate, for example, if someone navigates through the http protocol, without it being https, the information contained there is not encrypted and they can see the forms you enter and they can intercept all your data, and then steal it. It also serves to perform social engineering techniques such as ARP Spoofing.
Nmap is one of the tools preferred by all, since it is a network mapper, you can discover the available hosts and the services they offer, in addition to seeing which ports are open and listening to our equipment.
Owasp is a tool for escan the vulnerabilities of a WEB server, if you are interested in web applications, because vulnerabilities can be accessed OWASP It is a tool with that objective, it shows you the possible attacks that you can do to a web page such as SQL Injection, Xss cross site scripting.
