Ethical hacking : Important points for beginners

16/05/2018 0 0


Dear passionate learners,


I am posting lesson to create enthusiasm among you all for learning ethical hacking.


A beginner in Ethical Hacking is always in a dilemma.

Below are some misconceptions, which are the barrier to learning ethical hacking:-

1) Hacking is done for the wrong purpose.
2) Its done to steal data or money.
3) Hackers are always insecure about their stability and existence.
4) A Computer degree is required to become an Ethical Hacker.
5) hacking can be done only using specific tools.

Now, let's see what are some basic knowledge and skills for Ethical Hacking:-

1) Necessary Coding & knowledge of programming language.

Above is useful in knowing what code does, and to understand how the logic works.
i.e. If a hacker whose intentions are evil and has deployed the code on a system, in that scenario we need to know what is the purpose of the code.

2) Basic knowledge of Operating System especially Linux.

I would say, this is a must skill for ethical hackers.
Without knowing OS concepts, it's difficult for one to know about running processes,
system reachability, file systems and other protocols etc


3) Basic knowledge of networking.

Above is needed to know the route followed by packets.
i.e. man in the middle attack on the network, phishing etc. can be prevented, if anybody knows the core concept of networking.
A lot of banks wants to know who are the intruders in the network where the server is located.

4) Cross-platform execution of tools.

One must know how to execute a tool or code on all the platforms because the server where we need to find the weakness can be of any platform, i.e. Windows or Linux.

5) Hacking is also known as finding weaknesses in the system.

An ethical hacker finds the weakness in the system, to prevent the external attack.

6) Basic knowledge of all Communication protocols.

One must know the basic protocols like TCP/UDP and routing protocols like OSPF etc. to find weaknesses in the system.

7) One must be passionate and curious about knowing things.

A person who is always curious and passionate can learn easily, how the thing works.


Below is the analogy to the computer system and home.
If anyone knows what the entry points and exit points in a house are, he/she can save the house from external intruders.
Doors and windows in a house are like ports in a computer system.


Below video(which is created by me) link which I have uploaded in my youtube channel, illustrating the analogy:-
