In Detail

Kali Linux is rated as the #1 security operating system for hackers. With the Linux operating system and its core structure based on Debian, it comes jam-packed with all the tools you need to penetration-test your websites. Kali Linux has gained popularity over the last few years with the rise of hacker groups (Anonymous, Lizard Squad, Ghost Squad Hackers, and others).

In view of all this, companies are hiring hackers just like you to perform network and website vulnerability testing to help prevent hackers from getting in. However, if you think this job is done after you hand in your report, you're wrong. After you hand in your report on the security issues, the company will generally ask you to either work with its IT department to fix the corrections or hire you again to fix the issues yourself.

This course covers several great resources within Kali Linux and you'll use them to perform a full website and server vulnerability test, brute-force your way past passwords, search for back-doors, and other tasks. Finally, you'll create a professional report and hand it to your client.
