Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Gus Khawaja, and welcome to this exciting course of Penetration Testing Automation Using Python and Kali Linux. You are going to enjoy this course while I share my experience with you as a penetration tester and an ex-programmer who is a 15 years of experience in the field. I know you want to get rid of the idea of being a scrub giddy, right? And stop using software tools without understanding how they work. In this course, we are going to see together how to start automating your penetration testing tasks 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 information gathering automation, network scanning automation, vulnerabilities assessment automation, 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 programming using Python. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn some exciting stuff with Python and Kali Linux at Pluralsight.
