Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Explore the quick access list, part of Learning Kali Linux.
- [Voiceover] Let's look at what's in…the left hand vertical set of icons.…This is the quick access list…and contains useful system tools…as well as testing applications.…At the top of the list is Iceweasel,…Kali's internet browser and a variant to Firefox.…When I click on Iceweasel,…the browser starts up and a new entry appears…on the right-hand side of the top menu bar.…As default, the home screen for Iceweasel is the Kali site.…Clicking on the menu icon at the right-hand side,…shows the standard kind of options we'd expect in a browser.…
And to the left are the controls for favorites…and returning to the homepage.…I've replaced the URL with…https://wiki.debian.org/Iceweasel…and this brings up the Iceweasel project page.…OK, I'll close Iceweasel now.…The next application…in the left-hand quick access list is Terminal,…which is a Bash shell.…This provides a standard Linux command line.…
If I type ls,…I can see the files in the Kali directory.…If I type ps,…I can see the running processes.…We'll be using the shell a lot,…
This course will give prospective ethical hackers a short overview of the tools in Kali Linux. Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore shows how to set up a virtual environment for testing, configure Kali Linux, and install toolsets for information gathering, vulnerability assessment, password and hash cracking, and target exploitation.
Because businesses are connected, they are also exposed. Vulnerability testing helps organizations limit that exposure. This course will help you explore the careers, techniques, and tools behind ethical hacking—one of the most competitive and sought-after IT security skills.
