I wanna learn ethical hacking

Hi, i cant disclose my name because i dont want to but you can refer me as unknown. I have some knowledge in computers. Ive been using them for a long time. I've looked at many courses etc for ethical hacking and warched them all but the problem is these become outdated real quick. If anyone could provide me with free courses and resouces, it would be appreciated.

Hey! Welcome to the community, this course is free on YouTube and has some amazing stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FNYvj2U0HM&pp=ygUPZXRoaWNhbCBoYWNraW5n I also recommend checking out resources like HackTheBox and TryHackMe if you do decide to spend a little cash. Another good path would be to pursue education geared towards earlier certifications that are popular in the industry such as PenTest+ and CEH. You don't necessarily need to actually test for these unless you plan on making a career out of it then they are definitely useful for getting your start in the offensive ops side of things.

Then I recommend checking out those certifications and learning what's on them. Do labs, whether that means home labs or things like HackTheBox. The best way to learn the concepts and tools is doing it!

I wouldn't focus on just "ethical hacking" because you're gonna be pretty limited if you don't understand systems and networking in-depth. It's a common meme where people will jump straight to "i wanna be a super mysterious hackerman" without learning the foundation of computing and networking. I can't tell you how many times I've seen pentesters or threat actors get stumped because a network is not on a /24.

ive gone through systems and networking in the past

I'd hope so, they're meant to get you a foundation. Checkout their academy and look at TryHackMe too.

/24 is to do with subnetting right?
W
w33t264d ago
Sounds like you need to go through networking again lol but yes.
N
NovaX264d ago
nah i have notes i dont remember stuff
W
w33t264d ago
Then you should keep at it until you do, because a /24 is a basic networking thing you'll see everywhere. You're probably on a /24 right now.

You don't want to have to flip through your notes at every turn for basic things because then more advanced concepts will elude you.

NovaX264d ago
ill eventually remember

They key is repetition, as with many things in IT as a whole, so definitely keep at it, if you're looking to make a career out of it. Additionally, a lot of what people are teaching online doesn't really get outdated as quickly as you might think. The foundations of offensive security don't really change too much. Even if it is older content, there will still likely be something to learn from it.
