KALI LINUX 02 : Features & Installation

Things I like most in Kali Linux :

- Live Boot
- Full Installation
- Full Disk Encryption
- Forensics Mode (Live)
- PenTest Tools (Huge)
- Forensics Tools

Installation :

- My lab demonstration for this course will be in Vmware Workstation. Detail here. Or, you can use any other virtualization software.
- Download Kali Linux from here.

Verifying Integrity and Authenticity of downloaded Kali Linux file : 

"The fact that Kali relies on a network of external mirrors to distribute the image means that you should not blindly trust what you download. The mirror you were directed to may have been compromised, or you might be the victim of an attack yourself. To alleviate this, the Kali project always provides checksums of the images it distributes" via kali site.

See Images below (SHA256 File Checksum : Verified for kali-linux-2018.1-amd64.iso)

fig : online sha256 file checksum

fig : checksum available in kali official site.

- Once checksum is verified, you can now move further to install kali linux.
- Since video for this course will be in Nepali Language, so there is no need to show how to install Kali in virtual machine. Why ? Because I've already uploaded installation video tutorial here in yt. (Video was prepared in Jan,2016).
- Watch that video for installation guide. In any confusion, you can comment below in this video.

Assigning Memory (RAM) to OS in virtual machine.

At the end, some question for you :
- Difference between Live Boot and Full Installation ?
- Why do we need to validate the checksum of file ?
- RAM assign and OS in Virtual machine. Define.
