Password attacks are a common way to break into systems, so you need to understand the types of tools available and how they work. Kali Linux is an operating system with many tools to perform such attacks.
Weak passwords are still a huge problem in the security world. Users must set strong passwords to restrict access to data by anonymous users. Even a 6-digit PIN is not secure enough and can be brute-forced within an hour. A rule of thumb for passwords is that they should be longer (more than nine words) and contain different or multiple letters+numbers+special characters.
Hydra is a pre-installed tool in Kali Linux to enforce usernames and passwords for various services such as FTP, ssh, Telnet, MS SQL, etc. Brute force can identify different usernames and passwords against a target with the correct credentials. It is a command line tool that you will learn to use in this course.
This course teaches you how to crack passwords using Kali Linux. Kali Linux is an open-source, Debian-based distribution for advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing. It does this by providing common tools, configurations, and automation.
This is a beginner’s course; you don’t need advanced knowledge but should already have Kali Linux.
