About this video

Linux commands are so powerful that using them you can interact with your computer without any assistance of point and click GUI applications. Linux commands are also essential if you are looking to step into the world of ethical hacking. This course will take you through the Linux command line and, in no time, you will be comfortable in performing file and management tasks by using only the Linux commands.

The course starts with explaining the installation process of VirtualBox and Kali Linux. Next, you will get to know your computer with the help of terminal commands, such as ipconfig, ping, ip, dp, free, ps, top, kill, whoami, and uname. Moving along, you will learn to navigate through the directory structures and become familiar with the task of making and manipulating files. Later, you will learn to use the grep and awk commands to search through files and understand the concept of changing file permissions. Next, you will learn how to create and modify users and groups and go through the steps of installing new software. Toward the end, you will learn how to compress and extract files and get an overview of Bash scripting.

By the end of this course, you will have developed the basic Linux command line skills that will help you to start your career in ethical hacking.
