This may not be the right road map, but it could give some pointers.
I didnt exactly start as a beginner with a 15+ years of experience in the IT
But, frankly, after spending some time on security/hacking, I am still to
get there in toto.
I started off on security with Ed Skoudis's book called "Counter Hack",
PTR (available on Amazon.com)
I thought that is a superb book. Then, I looked at Alephone's paper on
Phrack magazine issue 49 (I think) -- smashing the stack for fun and profit.
hooked me on to this field. But my assembly skills had to be honed; so I
book on x86 assembly. Then, I went to securiteam.com site and tried to
run some exploits. I have a nice network here with all kinds of OSes loaded
I can try to hack into one machine from another, deploy sniffers etc etc.
I am still there struggling with them, but I now have a much better and
understanding of what goes in there. Of course, with all my other full-time
dont have that much time to devote to this.
Hope this helps.
