Dear passionate learners,

 

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

 

A beginner in Ethical Hacking is always in dilemma.

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

1) Hacking is done for bad 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 Ethical hacker.
5) hacking can be done only using a specific tools.


Now, lets see what are some basic knowledge and skills for Ethical Hacking:-

1) Basic Coding & knowledge of programming language.

Above is useful in knowing what a code does,and to know how the logic works.
i.e If a hacker whose intentions are bad and deployed his/her code on a system,in that
scenario we need to know what is the intention 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 ,its difficult for one to know about running processes,
system reachability,file systems and other protocols etc

 

3) Basic knowledge of networking.

Above is needed in order to know the route followed by packets.
i.e man in the middle attack in 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 system.

An ethical hacker finds weakness in system ,in order to prevent from 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 system.


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

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



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

 

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