About the course

Welcome to the Kali Linux Deep Dive course! This course is intended for individuals who already possess general IT knowledge, so be sure to read the list of prerequisites before you get started. Throughout the course, we will dive into the nature of hacking at the hardware level. This is how virtually all vulnerabilities were discovered — by individuals combing through source code or reverse engineering binaries.

This is what sets this course apart from the many others like it. In this course, you will learn how the vulnerabilities in frameworks like Metasploit, BeEF, SET, and others are found so that you will be able to deconstruct a program instead of just trying to figure out how to use something other people wrote. We’ll also cover subjects such as anonymity online and tackle the common misconception that VPN services guarantee anonymity. You’ll learn how to set up and operate your own anonymizing services instead.

In the Social Engineering section of the course, you will learn how to think like a hacker. This is extremely important, as your behavior and thought process determine whether you are an easy target for attacks or a serious cybersecurity specialist no one wants to mess with.

After finishing this course, you will have learned quite a bit, and, at some point, you will most likely have questions. I am always here to help so feel free to reach out and let me guide you on your way to becoming an expert white hat hacker.
