Ethical Hacking for beginners: Beginner to Advance
- Basic computer knowledge
For those who have had no prior training or understanding in hacking or cybersecurity, this hands-on, practical course was designed just for them, with a focus on practical skills and hands-on experience. In this course, you will learn not only what black-hat hatters do and how they do it, but you will also learn how to hack systems like a pro and win the cat and mouse game by protecting systems like a professional security expert, which is the ultimate goal.
Using a combination of hands-on experience and excellent theoretical instruction, we teach you from the fundamentals of ethical hacking all the way up to mastery, providing you with the skills you need not just to hack, but also to protect yourself from being hacked.
While we recognize that theory is vital, we also recognize that it may be boring and uninspired at times. In order to facilitate learning, this course is filled with real-world examples that you can use. This hands-on approach begins at the beginning, when we will teach you about penetration testing and demonstrate how to install the necessary tools (for Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX) before diving right into hacking.
Throughout the course, you will evaluate and attack a variety of systems, ranging from simple websites to complex networks, as well as hacking servers and client computers. You'll study more than just hacking tactics; you'll also learn how to perform effective penetration testing procedures.
This method provides you with the basic understanding that you need not only to hack any given system, but also to secure it, with each module covering both sides of the coin as part of the learning process. The course is divided into six major sections:
THE FIRST STEP IS TO LEARN THE ESSENTIALS OF BECOMING A HACKER.
A thorough introduction to the fundamentals of networking systems, including how they communicate and function, is provided in this part, which is intended to equip you with the information and skills necessary to succeed in this course.
THE ESSENTIALS OF NETWORKING: Networking might seem like a daunting subject, so don't be intimidated! We break down only the most critical aspects of networking that you need to know and teach you the foundations of networking that you need to be successful.
ESTABLISHING A HACKING LABORATORY: You can't hack unless you have a lab! Setting up your own hacking lab on your laptop or desktop computer is easy when you follow our step-by-step instructions!
PRINCIPLES OF LINUX + SCRIPTING: Hackers utilize Linux, which is an operating system that the typical person may not be familiar with. We will go through the fundamentals of Linux so that you will be able to find your way around the operating system during this course. We also cover a few of scripting languages that are absolutely necessary for every ethical hacker, and we teach you the fundamentals of each one through hands-on practice.
HIDING YOUR IDENTITY ON THE INTERNET: If you plan on hacking into someone's computer through the internet, you'll want to understand how to remain anonymous. We will demonstrate the tools and tactics that you may employ to ensure that you stay anonymous and untraceable on the internet at all times.
2: BECOME FAMILIAR WITH NETWORK HACKING.
This section explains how to test both wired and wireless systems in the same manner. During this course, you will learn how to move from not having any internet connectivity at all to having access and being able to launch attacks against other computers on the network.
Assaults that take place before the target is connected, or even before the victim knows the password, are called pre-connection attacks. Learn how to identify and modify devices that are linked to a network, as well as how to obtain information about your intended target.
ADVANCED: Learn how to leverage the knowledge you already have about your target to break the key and obtain the access password for a network. This section contains information on a variety of protocols, including WEP, WPA, and WPA2.
POST-CONNECTION ATTACKS: With the use of a key, you may now take use of strong hacking techniques to obtain even more details. Learn how to monitor what people are doing on a network, insert code into web pages, and more on wired and wireless networks in this course.
THREE: HOW TO OBTAIN ACCESS AND CONNECT WITH NETWORKS
In this section, you will learn how to build on the knowledge you gained in Section One, by learning how to get complete control over and hack into any computer system you want.
SERVER-SIDE ATTACK: Learn how to gather information about your targeted system – including its operating system, open ports, and installed services – without requiring the user to participate. Then, using this knowledge, you may attack vulnerabilities and produce reports for your organization.
CLIENT-SIDE ATTACK: Learn how to hack systems that do not have any vulnerabilities by slipping into them with software updates or by downloading backdoor trojans from the internet. You'll also study the skill of social engineering, which is the practice of manipulating individuals into providing you with information.
4: HOW TO USE POST EXPLOITATION TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
As the title suggests, this part turns the emphasis to interfacing with compromised systems. Now that you have gotten access, you will learn how to take use of the systems you have discovered.
ACCESS FILE SYSTEMS: All systems include a plethora of files, all of which you may now change using your access privileges. Learn how to gain access to these systems, as well as how to read, write, upload, and even run files on them.
MAINTAIN ACCESS: Obtaining access to a system and its data is just half of the battle. The other half is maintaining access. Learn how to keep your access secure and to resist attempts to re-secure it so that you can continue to abuse a computer system.
LEARN TO SPY ON YOUR TARGET: Discover how to record any keystrokes on a computer keyboard, activate a computer webcam, take screenshots, and even take complete control of the system in order to attack, hack, and get access to third-party networks and systems.
The fifth step is to learn how to hack websites and web applications.
If you read the previous part, you will have a better understanding of how to hack into websites and web apps using Kali Linux. Also covered will be the operation of web-based apps as well as how to identify and exploit security flaws that may exist inside them.
Learn how to scan websites/web apps for vulnerabilities that may be used to your advantage.
How to Infiltrate Web Applications Using Brute Force
When it comes to online apps, SQL injection is a must.
How to carry out Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks (CSRF)
