This chapter discusses automating certain attacks. Several aggregators are introduced to help with a little bit of heavy lifting.

We’ve talked a lot about a very high level methodology and how to execute it, and we’ve gone into a few examples of how you can look at certain things. The topic is really huge.
We also want to talk a little bit about automation, because although it’s possible to do all of this manually and it’s definitely one of the best vectors when you’re starting to learn these things, if you’re doing this work on a regular basis, automating certain attacks is a great force multiplier. We want to look at some measures that will help with a little bit of heavy lifting.
