Ethical hacking, or security testing, is the art and science of finding the flaws in an organization's network systems or web applications. Identifying those vulnerabilities can give the organization a fighting chance to fix them before the bad guys find them. This course is a hands-on overview of the open source tools that information security professionals use to conduct professional caliber penetration tests. Prerequisites include a basic understanding of the ways network systems and operating systems work, basic familiarity with Linux, the ability to run virtual machines (VMWare, etc.) so you can set up attack systems and target systems, and a computer that's ready to run Kali Linux and Metasploit software.
To help ensure that your learning experience is good, please note that this course is not for beginners or those new to programming. You must have prior programming experience in an object-oriented programming language as there are concepts that are mentioned in the course that are assumed to be prior knowledge and are not explained in detail.
Learning C# provides a solid foundation in object-oriented programming knowledge, paves the way for learning other programming languages, and positions those who complete this course for a wide variety of in-demand computer programming jobs.Â Â Â The C# programming language was created to be an object-oriented programming language that offers ease of use, familiarity to C/C++ and Java developers, along with enhanced memory and resource management.Â C# is prevalent on the Microsoft platform but is also being used to develop software that runs on Linux, Android, and iOS devices.Â Â Â This course aims to teach the basics of C# all the way through the advanced features of the language.Â Â This course is not a beginner course on C#, although beginners can still learn a lot from the material.Â It is intended to provide an introduction to the C# language and the world of .NET programming for existing programmers who need or want to learn more about C# and managed code development.
What you'll learn:
"Great course, covered a wide area of subjects. Good Teacher and great content! You need some knowledge of programming in any language upfront because it starts easy but rapidly increases in difficulty." - Christopher Carley, edX student
