Learning Kali Linux

Video Description

Learn the secrets of ethical hacking, penetration testing, and network discovery using Kali Linux

About This Video

  • Learn the secrets of ethical hacking, penetration testing, and white hat techniques using Kali Linux.
  • Perform network penetration testing and exploit vulnerable systems.
  • Be confident in using Kali Linux to become a top-notch penetration tester and ethical hacker.

In Detail

Kali Linux offers a large number of penetration testing tools from various different niches in the security and forensics fields. Kali Linux offers a multitude of options to scan a single IP, port, or host (or a range of IPs, ports, and hosts) to uncover vulnerabilities and security holes. The output and information can serve as a precursor to penetration testing efforts.

The course starts with vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. Then, you will learn about the process of ethical hacking from the initial identification and investigation to the final exploitations and report. Next, we will build a test lab in a virtual environment using Oracle VirtualBox, Kali Linux, and a vulnerable OS. You will get started with reconnaissance to gather information about a target. Next, you will focus on NMAP, which is one of the biggest and most popular networks and host scanning tools. You will also learn to avoid being detected by firewalls and IPs when using NMAP. Vulnerability assessment and analysis are the most important steps before trying to hack and penetrate a system so we will learn to initiate an exploit and penetrate a system. Finally, you'll exploit a system and, once exploitation is confirmed, you'll prepare and present a report to the customer.

By the end of the course, you will be an excellent hacker and will have mastered all the hows and whys of ethical hacking.
