What You Will Learn?
- Sharp Command Over Kali Linux Tools
- Hacking, Penetration Testing and Security Audit
Ethical hackers (sometimes called white hat hackers) are security professionals, who find and exploit vulnerabilities and weaknesses in various systems to make sure that these systems are fixed and become as safe as possible.
In this course, you will learn what is Ethical Hacking all about and how to use Kali Linux for white hat operations.
Learn Ethical Hacking from the Basics
You will start this course by learning how to install Kali Linux on your computer and how to work with it appropriately. You will build your skills and knowledge about various security threats in information, networks and other systems, with each lecture taking them to the next level.
You will learn how to gather information with different methods (for example fingerprinting and open ports). You will also find out how to exploit the vulnerability with varying parameters in the system you are using. When you complete this course, you will be able to use ethical hacking and the tools that Kali Linux provides to protect your system from hackers.

White Hat Versus Black Hat
The actions of an ethical hacker bear a lot of resemblance to the activities done by malicious hackers - black hats.
A person called a black hat hacker is someone who attempts to find system security vulnerabilities to exploit them for personal gain or other malicious or unlawful reasons.
Both a black hat and an ethical hacker use the same skills. However, an ethical hacker uses these skills for the greater good (a more secure system) in a lawful and legitimate manner. The mission of an ethical hacker is to find vulnerabilities and fix them before malicious hackers get to them and exploit them, doing a lot of financial or reputational damage in the process.
An ethical hacker is a lot of like a penetration tester, but with much broader duties. A white hat hacker breaks into the system in a lawful way with the intention to fix the system (that's why this hacker called an ethical hacker - because the reasons for breaking in are ethical). So the primary difference between ethical hackers and malicious hackers is the legality of the actions and the ethics behind breaking in.
I have created this course only for educational purposes. The attacks which were launched in this course were against the devices I have permission to test. As an instructor, I do not condone any actions you may take that are unlawful or unethical, and neither I nor BitDegree platform will bear any responsibility for their outcomes.
So take this ethical hacking and Kali Linux tutorial only if you want to have a more secure system and help others fix their vulnerabilities!
