What is Ethical Hacking?
Hacking is done to gain unauthorized access to the computer system or computer network. It is done to harm the system or to steal any sensitive information from the computer. If hacking is done to find the weaknesses in the computer system or network system for the purpose of testing.its called Ethical hacking.
A computer trainer who performs hacking is called “hacker”. Hackers are those people who seek knowledge, to grasp how the system operates, how they are designed and then make an effort to play with the systems. There are various types of hacking such as-
- Website hacking
- Network hacking
- E-mail hacking
- Ethical hacking
- Password hacking
Skills to become an expert ethical hacker
1. BASIC SKILLS- An ethical hacker must be a computer expert and needs to have very vigorous knowledge of computer networking and programming skills. An ethical hacker needs to have patience, persistence, as well as perseverance to try again and again and must wait for the required result. It requires a lot of effort to become an expert in this field. Once you are on this track, you would need to focus on the updated technologies and the security systems. Apart from this, an ethical hacker should be smart enough to understand the circumstances and other users’ mindsets to apply social engineering tactics. A good ethical hacker should be equipped with great problem-solving techniques too.
2. BASIC COMPUTER SKILLS- To become an ethical hacker you must need computer skills. These skills go beyond the capability to creating a word document or jaunt the Internet. You need to be capable to use the command line in Windows, edit the registry and setting up the network parameters.
3. SCRIPTING SKILLS- Without scripting skills, the hacker will be entrusted to use other hacker’s tools. This restricts your effectiveness. With the latest technology, everyday a new tool came into existence loses effectiveness as the security admins come up with defenses.
4. EXPERT IN LINUX SKILLS- It is acutely critical to developing the Linux skills to become an expert ethical hacker. As we know most of the tools we use as an ethical hacker are developed using Linux. Also, Linux gives the potential that we don’t have using Windows.
5. MASTERING COMPUTER NETWORKING SKILLS- An expert ethical hacker must be equipped with the knowledge of networking skills. This includes Network communications, network topologies, TCP/IP fundamentals, IP addressing, TCP/UDP protocols, standards, and organizations.
6. SECURITY CONCEPTS- As an ethical hacker, you must be updated with the latest security concepts and technologies. The hacker must be familiar with the terms like PKI (Public Key Infrastructure), SSL (Secure Socket Layer), firewalls, etc.
7. WEB APPLICATIONS AND DATABASE- In recent years, web applications are probably the most fertile ground for hackers. An ethical hacker should understand how web applications work and the database behind them.
8. WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES- To hack the wireless network, you must need to know about wireless technology. A proficient ethical hacker must be familiar with the terms like encryption algorithms (WEP, WPA, and WPA2), WPS, and the four-way handshake.
9. SERVER SKILLS- Server skills play a major role in the career of an ethical hacker. As an ethical hacker, it is an essential need to understand the servers. For example, Apache web server, DNS, ADDS, TELNET, FTP, Squid proxy, Samba, and more servers.
10. REVERSE ENGINEERING- Reverse engineering is also termed as back-engineering. It enables us to open a piece of malware and re-build it with extra features and capabilities Reverse engineering plays a major role in ethical hacking. Every new malware uses its components from other existing malware.
