About the Bundle

Linux, C++, and API Management for Secure Networking

All three books in this bundle, i.e. Linux Essentials for Hackers & Pentesters, Mastering C++ Network Automation, and Mastering Postman provides a comprehensive view of network security and administration.

Ethical hacking and penetration testing with Kali Linux are covered in depth in the Linux book. The C++ book expands on this understanding by centering on Kubernetes container orchestration and network automation. In addition to these, "Mastering Postman" provides an additional critical layer by instructing on how to simplify API development, which is essential for safe and effective network operations.

Experts in network administration, automation, and security will find this bundle invaluable; it covers all the bases when it comes to managing and securing networks with different tools and languages.
