What you will learn

An introduction to attacking networks and breaking passwords.

A clear understanding of what ethical hacking and penetration testing is.

Setting up Kali Linux

Overview of tools in Kali


Kali is a penetration testing Linux distribution created by Offensive Security. It holds a repository of multiple tools for security-related engineers including hacking wireless networks, web applications, databases, Reverse engineering, password crackers, and much more! As you can see, Kali is a versatile and powerful tool for anyone looking to do any cybersecurity-related work.

Keep in mind this is a basics course, which means this course is a beginner’s guide to getting started in Kali…to get your feet wet. The course is broken down into several sections focusing on certain aspects of the ethical hacking process. Starting off with an overview of Kali and its use cases then offer a step-by-step walkthrough of installing Kali using VMware. Next, we teach you some important configuration settings in the distribution including configuring your network and managing services in Kali. Knowing these procedures will help you set up the proper environments when using Kali and its tools.

We will cover the five phases and the tools used in each phase, again this is an introduction so we may not go super in-depth but you will leave with a basic understanding of how to do things and why they are done in each phase. Because of issues with Udemy free courses being less than two hours I am not able to add additional content. However, I will be publishing more free courses. I will be publishing a more focused Course on each of the phases.

The goal is to provide you with basic knowledge to get you started so you can take it from there. Remember this is not a field that you have can walkthrough. You will have to grow and adapt as the environment changes.

Great content. To the point. I've actually learned more from this shot course than I did from the other courses.

So far from the first three lessons I believe that I like the guys teaching style. I wish that we could hear everything more clearly and I do wish that he would’ve made a separate video for training on how to set up Matas play double three just because if we’re gonna be ethical hackers we should understand this stuff thoroughly

Great content. I love that we actually did the assignments, opposed to the multiple choice stuff in most of the Udemy courses that I’ve done. Thanks! I learned a lot.

This is the best beginner course I've seen so far. All information is structured and presented clearly and comprehensibly.

goes to quick does really explain he is doing. Seems like he does not want us to learn. Also the screen is so small. we can not see what he is doing.

The course is basic, but gives you an overview, Hashcat didn't work becuase of the VM reosurces, but you can use John the Ripper instead.

When I start my Cybersecurity course in September 2022 I will try to practice some of the tasks seen on the course.

Concept not clear and it will be better if you use more practical content rather than theoretical one.

Nice experience so far. I want to say thank you for it. Sometimes I'd like to hear more, why we are doing things, and what the aim/target is. Der Kurs ist bis dahin ganz gut. Danke dafür. Manchmal wäre mir wichtig, zu erfahren, warum und wofür wir Dinge tun. Vielleicht ist das in einem so frühen Stadium noch nicht sinnvoll.

I already knew a little bit about VMs, so setting this up myself on VirtualBox wasn't that complicated. Although, I believe that other students out there who (truly) are beginners at this and don't know much about computer might find this walkthrough a little complicated. Might wanna walk them more step by step.

Quite engaging content, well explained with step by step instructions on setting up the working environment. I think this tutorial will work out well for me.

Basic Level Course can be improved .. Firewall bypassing must be included while attacking the win10 target and also elaborate how to do port forwarding to perform this in real life. And also how to generate undetectable payloads like using magic numbers or encryption methods etc etc..

Excellent course. Very interesting and informative. Topics are explained in detail and shown using examples. I am really enthusiastic and can only recommend this course for those interested. Thank you very much
