This online course is for you and you will learn how to build your own virtual lab and install the pre-requisites. You will also build your Own Kali Linux customize build with Nessus as Vulnerability Scanner. You should be using your new build of Kali Linux for attacking the vulnerable machine in this workshop.

The idea behind this workshop is basically nothing new but we will learn something new that’s the whole agenda. The workshop would be simple and will go quickly. Do not feel that I will explain how certain tools works or what is exploit blah blah. However a bit of them!

You will gain the new SUPER SKILL you will know how to create your own Virtual Lab to hack what you need or want to HACK!

We will be focusing on how to do some research on actually discovering vulnerabilities in software and then putting more efforts to write some proof of concepts for those vulnerabilities. The value added of this workshop would be a quick guide on how to rebuild Kali Linux as per your requirement. As we have listed down “Nessus” to be used in this workshop for the vulnerability assessment phase, what if you can rebuild Kali Linux and add some security tools in it, which you always wanted. Kali Linux is customizable and we will add Nessus in our new build of Kali Linux.

  1. Lacking actual Training


    Most of the course talks about what to use and little on how or what to test. I had to find other sites only to find full step on how to build my own Kali because the course was lacking instruction and troubleshooting skills. There was no test or projects to practice what was trying to convey on this course.

  2. A little bit more


    Some text was not complete and a help text was written but it could not be send.
    I can not watch any video in this course, that was bad.
