Learn ethical hacking through Kali Linux, one of the leading computer security operating systems. In this course, you will learn how to gather information, detect vulnerabilities, and exploit them using tools in Kali Linux. This course will give you all of the tools that you need to be able to test your own servers and applications for vulnerabilities.

Computer security is one of the fastest-growing fields in technology, and ethical hacking is one of the best skills to learn in the field. With a new attack being completed every 39 seconds, it is essential that security experts are equipped with the most powerful tools for the job. The tools in Kali Linux are commonly used by attackers and defenders to help secure their systems. Learning these tools will allow you to secure your system before the attackers get to it.

You will learn how to exploit common vulnerabilities in Linux and Windows, as well as how to find common vulnerabilities in web apps such as command injections and SQL injections.
