- [Scott] Kali is a Linux distribution designed for security testing and analysis. Normally, we have to install it natively on a computer, boot it from a live CD or a thumb drive, or set up a virtual machine to run it. But now with the Windows Subsystem for Linux, we can use Kali right on the Windows desktop without having to deal with virtual machines at all. I'm Scott Simpson and in my LinkedIn Learning course, you'll see how to get going with Kali on Windows 10. Kali provides tools for password cracking, wireless network analysis, working with software to find radio, and a whole bunch of other security and penetration testing tests.
We'll also take a look at where you can go to learn even more about Kali for all your security analysis needs. Let's go.
