  1. Well in 2016 and onwards, obviously its good to cover getting started with Kali (and by proxy, Linux). In my opinion only other lesson needed in regards to wps, WPA and wep is a quick lesson on using wifite. Which is probably going to fail, unless they are testing ancient and non-updated routers.

    Really as of now the only viable pen testing methods are oclhashcat which is GPU bruteforcing and social engineering methods “evil twin” types… Maybe the occasional 0-day exploit…

  2. come on !!! we’re talking about kali linux pen-testing tools for certified ethical hackers and civil individuals with knowledge on how to protect their system from vulnerabilities, all i see here is how to install kali linux which is pretty straight forward if you read about it… and a wpa/wpa2 attack is for the typical novice hacker, when there are various ways to get the password without a txt file by capturing enough deauthed packets, you completely bypassed the boot up sequence, the configure, python 2, 3 , metasploit, msfconsole, veil-evasion, hydra, etc, etc and the main key feature you must have if you want to use kali linux to its full potential is the ability to code in many different languages … otherwise your success here is minimal

    • most exploits on kali linux have been patched by multiple databases, which is why they were added to kali linux for pen testing, the ability to write your own code with the help of msfconsole is where the real features of kali sky rocket
