Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Gus Khawaja, and welcome to my course of Network Penetration Testing Using Python and Kali Linux. You are going to enjoy this course with an IT consultant who has 15 years of experience in the IT field. I know you want to get rid of the idea of being a script kiddie, right? And you want to stop using software tools without understanding how they work. In this course, we are going to see together how to start developing networking applications using Python and, guess what? We will use the best operating system for penetration testers--Kali Linux. Some of the major topics that we will cover include FTP brute forcing, network scanners, network sniffers, and much, much more. By the end of this course, you should be able to start developing your next piece of art using Python. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with penetration testing and a little bit of knowledge of how to use Python. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn some exciting stuff with Python and Kali Linux at Pluralsight.
