Product Description

The first book to reveal and dissect the technical aspect of many social engineering maneuvers

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.

From the Author: Defining Neuro-Linguistic Hacking (NLH)

Author Chris Hadnagy
NLH is a combination of the use of key parts of neuro-lingusitic programming, the functionality of microexpressions, body language, gestures and blend it all together to understand how to “hack” the human infrastructure. Let’s take a closer at each to see how it applies.

Neuro-Lingusitic Programming (NLP): NLP is a controversial approach to psychotherapy and organizational change based on "a model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and the subjective experiences underlying them" and "a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behavior"

Neuro: This points to our nervous system which we process our five senses:
• Visual
• Auditory
• Kinesthetic
• Smell
• Taste

Linguistic: This points to how we use language and other nonverbal communication systems through which our neural representations are coded, ordered and given meaning. This can include things like:
• Pictures
• Sounds
• Feelings
• Tastes
• Smells
• Words

Programming: This is our ability to discover and utilize the programs that we run in our neurological systems to achieve our specific and desired outcomes.

In short, NLP is how to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve, modify and alter our specific and desired outcomes (or that of a target).

Microexpressions are the involuntary muscular reactions to emotions we feel. As the brain processes emotions it causes nerves to constrict certain muscle groups in the face. Those reactions can last from 1/25th of a second to 1 second and reveal a person’s true emotions.

Much study has been done on microexpressions as well as what is being labeled as subtle microexpressions. A subtle microexpression is an important part of NLH training as a social engineer as many people will display subtle hints of these expressions and give you clues as to their feelings.

Poorly written, not contextualized, and extremely dated

This book is fairly dire.

To be fair, I am only 15% of the way through, and I don''t plan to finish it, so maybe it gets a lot better later on. I doubt it.

Why is this book dire?

1) The writing is horrible. Here is a sample quote:

"Communication is a process of transferring information from one entity to another. Communication entails interactions between at least two agents, and can be perceived as a two-way process in which there is an exchange of information and a progression of thoughts, feelings, or ideas toward a mutually accepted goal or direction."

The book goes on in this vein, explaining what communication is, for like FIVE PAGES. Long-winded, repetitive explanations of incredibly simple concepts the reader already knows are extremely characteristic of the writing style and appear over and over.

2) The information is not presented in a way that allows you to actually use it. The author goes on at great length talking about sites you can use to find someone''s location from photo metadata, or figure out what software is installed on a company''s network, or how to get someone''s account number and routing number at a bank. (Spoiler alert: it''s printed on every check they write). But why you would actually want to know any of this is not explained. Much of the specific information here is also very dated -- more on this below.

3) The social engineering aspect also seems either pointless (where the attack could easily be accomplished without SE, or requires a much harder part that is not SE related) or impractical (the attack is unlikely to work). The author describes an elaborate social engineering approach which he used to get access to a company bathroom and leave a USB key hoping someone would plug it in. Or, you know, you could skip all of the social engineering part and just drop the USB key in the lobby and that would probably work too. There is a hilarious part where you are instructed to go to a company''s front desk and try this:

"The basic story is that you saw the ad in the paper for a database administrator and you called in and spoke to Debbie, the HR person. She said she was booked today but you should stop in and drop off a resume for her review and then meet her at the end of the week. While you were driving over, a squirrel ran out, causing you to slam on the brakes and causing your coffee to come out of the holder and spill in your bag, ruining your resumes and other stuff. Anyhow, you have another appointment but really need this job and wonder whether she would print you a fresh copy from your USB drive."

The author says that "this story usually works". I very much doubt this ever works. I''m pretty sure most receptionists would think you were mentally ill if you tried this.

Now, I bet you think I''m being unfair -- ok, technology content becomes obsolete, but this was probably a valid attack in the late 90s or early 2000s, right -- back when people saw help wanted ads in newspapers and applied for DBA jobs over the phone and dropped off print copies of their resumes at the front desk and got in-person meetings with HR reps who hadn''t even seen their resumes yet? It turns out this book was published in 2011 (!!!). That attack would have been obsolete years before this book was published, if it ever worked at all.

As a security professional I did not expect to learn a whole lot from this book. I have studied many of the topics covered previously. However, I was happy to find a decent amount of new information. Some of the chapters, like the lock picking chapter, aren''t that useful but the art of lock picking in itself could easily be an entire book. I have spent years studying locks so that was one of the only chapters that I didn''t find useful. I still think this book deserves 5 stars, it is a great overview of the security weaknesses that everyone faces in their daily life''s. If everyone read and understood this book, it would make con-artists jobs a lot harder.

I know this book is somewhat controversial because it explains how to trick and con people. I think this type of information needs to be more widely publicized, if people only understood the threats that exist out there and how to avoid them then many security problems could be adverted. This book focuses strongly on humans as the weakest link in any security environment, this will always be true. If you are looking for an overview of both digital and local security, this book is fantastic. Also a great book for experienced pen testers looking for some new tools

Chris Hadnagy''s book on Social Engineering is phenomenal. It is packed full of detailed information, complete with in depth explanation and real life examples. Chris has an excellent writing style that flows conversationally. Also, I have yet to find any errors (to include typos), which makes the read much more enjoyable as I tend to get distracted by errors. While most of what is presented could be found in other sources, never before has it been brought together in such a targeted and helpful way for those needing to learn these skills for security work. Chris shares many real life examples in a way that illustrate the principles he is teaching quite well, and demonstrates the practical applicability of what is being taught.

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).

Chris Hadnagy''s book, "Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking" is a prodigious resource for anyone interested in security, cybersecurity, or human behavior in general. It''s the oldest game in the world: scamming, influencing, manipulation, or just swaying opinion in order to get something to one''s benefit. But in today''s complex computer environment, attackers are using complex psychological tricks to get sensitive information from an organization that supports their desire to steal your information or control your computers. Social Engineering (SE) is used to bypass physical security measures and company employees, even giving them physical access to resources. You need to understand their tricks and ploys in order to counter them!

Mr. Hadnagy organizes his book in a very thoughtful way, showing many case studies and examples of the terms in use. The topics escalate from information gathering to elicitation, onward to pretexting (how to become anyone in another person''s eyes/ears), and psychological methods of tricking others. He discusses interviewing and interrogation, and spends a lot of time on influencing and manipulating others in a social engineering setting.

The book wraps up with a discussion of tools useful for anyone examining social engineering during security audits or social engineering/penetrating tests. There are a number of case studies that demonstrate how social engineers do their work, including some stories by the infamous Kevin Mitnick! Finally, the book wraps up with a discussion on how to prevent and mitigate the SE threat. Those working in the security field will find this discussion valuable and likely the most important part of the book. The challenge is daunting and Mr. Hadnagy discusses realistic methods for countering this insidious threat to our businesses and organizations.

To compliment the book, Mr. Hadnagy is one of the key developers of a complimentary resource, social-engineer.org, which discusses many of the book''s topic in a framework for social engineering. This book is also the cornerstone of a graduate level course at Bellevue University (Nebraska) named "Human Aspects of Cybersecurity." Bellevue was designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE-IAE) for the academic years of 2012-2017 - indicating just how valuable this resource was to the overall cybersecurity graduate degree program.

Of all the books I''ve used in my college years, I have kept only about 8-10. This resource is #1 in my list of references and I highly recommend it for anyone curious or concerned about cybersecurity. Humans are the weakest link and it''s about time you learned how to mitigate this threat before your security is compromised!

I just finished this morning and am starting on my second pass. It is an excellent work, full of more information than can possibly be absorbed the first time around. Not only is it a fantastic guide (almost a training manual) for the social engineer, pentester, or auditor.

More importantly in my view though is this: If you are tired of feeling inundated by coworkers, bosses, political and commercial advertising, friends, or acquaintances trying to manipulate and influence you, this book is a must read. If you want to learn how to spot those things and build your own defenses against them this book will set you on that path. I fully expect that I will wear out this book in the next few months and need another copy.

This is a true masterpiece by Christopher Hadnagy

Chris has successfully created a complete guide in Social Engineering on a detailed level.

The book is very easy to understand, and it''s easy to get into the details. It also explains different scenarios using scientific facts how it''s working and how you - as the "attacker" have full controll of the situation.

You can never have a complete protection against Social Engineering, The book will explain why you can''t protect and it''s very important that the users knows that they are the targets and the attack would probably begin with an, from the user point of view, innocent and unimportant question several weeks earlier

The book provides you with the facts, tools and other resources to start practicing to become a really good Social Engineerer I

would defenitely recommend the book.

Social engineering is used everyday, in every aspect of our life, without us even knowing at times! Not just by con men, hackers etc but sales reps, doctors, parents employers, teachers. Knowing and playing on human emotions is very powerful tool and can be used to manipulate people to do actions they normally would not do. The human brain is the CPU and hard-drive combined and this can be overloaded (human buffer attack) and manipulated by emotion triggering (which can be triggered by just bringing back a memory in the brain good/bad). Whether over the phone or in person (facial muscles perform certain twitches for every emotion, anyone watched Lie to Me?) the human is always open to attack. This book covers a wide range of topics, from how we use social engineering day to day in our personal lives, how the media/businesses use this globally and tests/case studies used by trained pentesters/social engineer auditors simply to just open peoples eyes to see this, its almost like our eyes are closed to all these techniques, as mostly done subconsciously. Would highly recommend having a read. I do believe the book is aimed at non-technical computer readers (as author really explains technical terms in layman) however even as a technical person this book still is very enjoyable read. It''s all good breaking computer systems/networks but having the extra ability to break humans into giving you faster, direct, powerful entry is even more astonishing . This skill can be applied in every area of life, not just digitally, to ensure you are never ripped off (be it a sales man/media advertisements etc) and also helps you protect your family, work, business, investments, money and future as you will not be easily manipulated by this technique when you are aware.
