The goal of ethical hacking is to find security vulnerabilities in an organization’s digital systems and networks. The best way to test the security of this infrastructure is to attempt to break in through penetration testing techniques. The increasing amount of high-profile cyber incidents continues to emphasize the need for individuals with these skills, with job demand projected to continue at an exponential rate.

The techniques shown here leverage free tools which are explained throughout the course, including instructions for creating your own home lab for practice and study. One of the primary tools you will become familiar with is Kali Linux, which is a Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at penetration testing and security auditing.
