Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to virtualization, part of Introduction to Kali Linux.
- [Voiceover] In this course, I'm going to show you…how to set up and do security testing in a virtual lab.…To create the lab, we'll use a virtualization system,…called VirtualBox, which runs on a Windows host computer.…To do the testing, we'll use a Linux distribution,…which is designed specifically for…security work, called Kali Linux.…We'll also have in the virtual lab,…a number of target systems that we can test.…There are a number of benefits of using a virtual test lab.…
Virtualization is a very easy way…of setting up a testing environment,…and avoids the need to purchase racks of…computers and networking equipment.…I'm using my i7 Ultrabook to run a virtual test lab,…but with the efficiency of modern virtual environments,…almost any computer is powerful enough to do this.…Using a virtual lab for testing ensures that…all testing is contained within a prescribed environment,…and test scans and probes don't leak out onto the internet.…
This is an important consideration…in ethical penetration testing, or pen testing,…
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.
