1. the use of communication skills and quick wits in order to turn a scenario into a favorable situation

2. a practice used by crackers and black hats in order to gain sensitive information needed in order to compromise security by using techniques such as eavesdropping on conversations or posing as tech support
1. you are at a fancy restaurant and have just finished eating. the waiter comes to take your plate, but as he picks it up, you use slight of hand and manuevering to make it appear as if the waiter has dropped the plate (and the food residue on it) all over your shirt. you complain angrily, call for the manager, et al. the manager winds up giving you the meal for free.

2. you, as a black hat, walk up to a smoke break outside of a company who you want to steal credit card numbers for. employees are whining about their randomized p-sswords. you memorize one of them, and then go off with that information in order to gain access into the company firewall.
social engineering is used primarily in the cracking world. these previous defintions talking about free drinks etc is not social engineering. that is a con or scam. social engineering is a art form. it is the ability to gain peoples trust and using that information for your own nefarious purposes. social engineering can range from the most mundane to elaborate ruses. it can be someone asking a another person for their p-ssword or it can be someone pretending to be a a employee of a trusted company to get access to something. keep in mind the ultimate goal is to get access to something. people are not stupid which is why social engineering came about. a usual direct question to someone for a p-ssword or login is going to give you a no answer. however when applying social engineering you would be calling or speaking to this person under the premise that you work for the helpdesk or the telephone co. you temporarily befriend this person get their guard down then get the information you need. kevin mitnick was a master of social of engineering.

i was able to use social engineering with joe by pretending to work for the phone company. i called him and was able to get the employee login list.

the art of hacking people rather than computers. most of the time it’s easier than hacking computers because people are so stupid that you can just ask them for p-sswords and credit card information and they’ll give it to you!
