Installing Kali Linux as our penetration testing system

Prerequisites

  • Basic working understanding of Linux
  • How to modify configuration files
  • How to clone repositories from GitHub

Getting Started

We need to grab the Kali Linux image from their website for this tutorial we are going to be using the 64bit image. As before if you have a 32Bit processor or a 32bit operating system you must select the 32 bit version of Kali otherwise yours will not work. Once that is finished downloading we can add it to our lab environment.

Firstly we need to create a new virtual machine like we have done before.

Create a new virtual machine and ensure yours matches this images
