The second edition of this bestselling introduction to the Linux operating system for hackers and penetration testers has been fully updated and revised, covering the latest version of Kali.

If you’re getting started along the exciting path of hacking, cybersecurity, and pentesting, this book is an excellent first step. Using Kali Linux—an advanced penetration testing distribution of Linux—you’ll quickly pick up the basics of using the Linux operating system, and acquire the tools and techniques you’ll need to take control of a Linux environment. Later chapters focus on foundational hacking concepts like security, anonymity and scripting, along with practical tutorials and exercises that test your skills.

This fully revised second edition covers the latest version of Kali, includes new options for setting up a Linux virtual machine, and discusses some differences between the bash and Z shells used on the newest versions of the distribution. It also addresses contemporary examples of real-world hacking, such as the cyberwar between Russia and Ukraine.

You’ll learn how to:
Install Kali on a virtual machine and build your own hacking tools 
Perform common tasks like manipulating text and controlling file and directory permissions
Cover your tracks by leveraging the rsyslog logging utility
Hide your internet activity using Tor, proxy servers, VPNs, and encrypted email
Write bash and Python scripts to scan open ports for potential targets
