Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Use command-line tools, part of Introduction to Kali Linux.
- [Voiceover] Kali provides a number of command line…password tools.…Lets open a terminal window and look at three of them.…We'll start with a tool called Crunch.…Crunch is a tool to generate simple dictionaries…using a syntax template.…It allows dictionary words of specified length…to be created using options to specify their construction.…Lets generate a password file.…The full instructions can be accessed as shown…but for the moment all we need to know is that…we can use the percent sign to generate numbers…at the at sign to generate characters.…
Okay, let's generate the set of dictionary words…password01 to password99 by entering…crunch 10 10 -t password%%.…We can use the -O option to specify an output…file for the dictionary.…I'll generate all six character lowercase passwords…starting with Dave and save it to a file dave.txt.…Lets have a look at what we've generated.…
The next tool I want to look at…is called rsmangler.…Rsmangler is designed to read a simple dictionary file…and provide for a wide range of permutations…
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.
