Learning
to become hacker is not as easy as learning to become a software developer. I realized this
when I started looking for learning resources
for simple hacking people do. Even to start doing the
simplest hack on own, a hacker requires to have in depth knowledge of multiple topics. Some people
recommend minimum knowledge of few programming languages like C, Python, HTML with Unix

operating system concepts and networking knowledge is required to start learning hacking
techniques.

Discover

Exploit (computer security)

Script kiddie

DEF CON

Computer programming

Though knowing a lot of things is required, it is not really enough for you to be a competent and
successful hacker. You must have a passion and
positive attitude towards problem solving. The
security softwares are constantly evolving and therefore you must keep learning new things with
a
really fast pace.

If you are thinking about ethical hacking as a career option, you may need to be prepared for a lot of
hard/smart work. I hope these free resources will help you speed up on your learning. If you decide
you pursue ethical hacking as a career option, you may also want to read some in depth ethical
hacking books.

Discover

Problem solving

Website

White paper

YouTube

A lot of people (including me before doing research for this article) think that they can become a
hacker using some free hacking tools available on web. Its true that some common types of hacking
can be easily done with help of tools, however doing it does not really make you a hacker. A true
hacker is the one who can find a vulnerability and develop a tool to exploit and/or demonstrate it.

Hacking is not only about knowing "how things work", but its about knowing "why things work that
way" and "how can we challenge it".

Below are some really useful hacking tutorials and resources you may want to explore in your
journey of learning to hack

Hacking For Dummies - Beginners Tutorials


These tutorials are
not really simple for anyone who is just starting to learn hacking techniques.
However, these should be simple starting point for you. I am
sure you have different opinion about
complexity of each tutorial however advanced hacker are going to be calling this a job of script kiddie
(beginner hacker). Even to acquire the skills of a script kiddie you need to have good understanding
of computer fundamentals and programming.

want to look at the specific security websites directly from vendors. I have kept Linux. Microsoft and
apache in this list, however it may apply to any product you may be heavily using.

important to become more productive at your work. Some of the very common tools that are used by
hackers are listed here. You may have different choice of tools based on your own comfort.
1. nmap
2. NSS
3. Hping
4. TCPDump
5. Metasploit
6. Wireshark
7. Network Stuff
8. Nikto

Summary
I have tried to compile some of these resources for my own reference for the journey of learning I am
going to
start. I am not even at a beginner level of becoming hacker but the knowledge of this field
really fascinates me and keeps me motivated for learning more and more. I hope will be able to
become successful in this.

A lot of people use their knowledge skills for breaking stuff and stealing. I personally think that doing
harm to someone is a weak choice
and will not have a good ending. I would recommend not to use
your skills for any un-ethical endeavor. A single misuse of your skill may jeopardize your career since
most companies do a strict third party background check before they hire a ethical hacker or a
security personal.

There are dozens of companies looking for ethical hackers and security professionals. There are

really good number of opportunities in this area and its really niche compensation segment. You will
be easily able to get a decent job without even acquiring all the expert level skills to become a pro
hacker.
