Operating System / Machine For Hackers
Welcome To The Kali Linux Beginner Series!!
Hello Guys!! Its a beginner series of kali-linux designed by me for those who wants to learn about pentesing & hacking.
We all know that in the world of Information Technology & Cyber everything is not stable & not secure because of some hacktivist activities like: cyber crime,data leak,ransom & etc. While for defending these activities we have ethical-hackers,pen-testers,bug-hunter for identifying vulnerable issues.
Early days when apple,Microsoft & big giants was trying to build more flexible and user friendly operating system like:windows,mac OS which was basically based on Unix.There was an one more operating system known as a the first OS for the hackers Backtrack.Backtrack was a Linux distribution that focused on security, based on the Knoppix Linux distribution aimed at digital forensics and penetration testing use. All the black-Hats,white-hats,grey-hats,pen-testers were using backtrack for hacking & pen-testing.
But In 2013 with some changes this OS named as Kali-Linux.Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for and penetration testing.It is maintained and by Offensive Security.Kali has over 600 installed pentesting tools,including Information gathering,Vulnerability scanning & other pentesting tools.
