PWK - Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (Class Begins)

For several years now I have been intrigued with the idea of penetration testing and computer security.  In my pursuits I came accrues a Linux distribution called "Backtrack".  This has recently be renamed to "Kali", but the premise is still the same.  Kali is supported by a group called "Offensive Securities" who specializes in Penetration Testing (Ethical hacking), and training.  If you do a Google search on top IT certifications you will likely find the OSCP (offensive securities certified professional) listed among the top ten.

I finally took the plunge and began my journey with OSCP and so far I have been extremely impressed with the program.  Currently I am on day 5 of 60 and am already wishing I would have signed up for the 90 day course rather than the 60 day.  I probably will not post again on this topic until I have finished the course and with any luck and lots of time passed the final exam which is 24 hours long!!!!

Don't expect any hints…
