Training Overview
A good and stable operating system plays a pivotal role in all the tasks which are performed by a hacker or information security professional. The way a hacker maintains, operates and plays with an operating system is fundamentally different from the way a normal user performs these tasks.

The operating system of choice of many hackers is always an open source operating system and most of the time it is Linux. Apart from being free and open source, it is more secure and stable than many other operating systems. With the proprietary software whose source code is not made available, there is always a danger that the programmers might have left some backdoor in their software so as to exploit it at their will when desired.

It is this reason that hackers and information security community tends to use Free and Open Source Software. Indeed, most of the tools used in the world of hackers and information security specialists are Free and Open Source. They can themselves see the source code, audit it for any vulnerabilities and loopholes left there, and then can use it for the purpose they like it. And it is for these reasons that one important motto of hackers and information security specialists is that source code should be open and freely available.

Linux System and Network Administration for Hackers is a hands-on training course which is meant to teach the participants all what is needed to effectively use Linux for purposes of penetration testing and information security. A tentative outline of the content to be covered during the training session is provided below.

This training is meant for general enthusiasts with some knowledge of computers and operating systems, computer science and engineering students, professionals and researchers. Those who already work in the field of information security but still have not tested what Linux is, would benefit most from this training as it will introduce them to a new avenue of hacking and that of Free and Open Source Software.
