Should I just go with sensepost and play around with Kali?
Oh sure and I have checkout BlackArch, but as a starting point towards some form of education, e.g. basic certification for penetration testing, I know about sensepost and Kali.You do know that there are other "hacking" Linux Distros you can use.
Kali has a lot of bloat. As an alternative, use *your preferred version of Linux" and add the applications you need to do basic network, port scanning, dictionary attacks etc, and play around with those tools on a VM.
Will do. thanks.There are several pen-testing simulators online. One I played with before has levels where advancement to the next, more challenging, level is dependant on you finding the info needed to proceed to the next level.
Good, will check them out thanksCTF style tasks:
Also, subscribe to this guy:
Does walk-throughs of decommissioned https://www.hackthebox.eu/ challenges
This.. Also, a good book to get started with is Penetration testing by Georgia Weidman(Nostarch press). As for sensepost, I have heard that their training is good. I would compare the price of their upcoming courses in June with the PWK course from Offsec(the Kali people).
