What is Kali Linux Official Documentation?

The Kali Linux Official Documentation site was created by the Kali Linux team as a resource for the information security community. It provides a wealth of information, both basic and more advanced, to meet the needs of a variety of users, at all different experience levels.

Among the many topics covered by this site are considerations for determining whether Kali Linux is the right distribution to use and how to install it, and more complicated subject matter on using and customizing Kali Linux, such as how to create custom complex images like the Kali Linux ISO of Doom and kernel compilation. It also provides users with information on Kali community support and details important policies affecting the usage of the platform.

The Latest in Kali Linux

The Kali Linux Official Book site was launched in conjunction with the debut of the Kali Linux Certified Professional (KLCP) certification exam, the first official certification based on Kali Linux, and the launch of an enhanced Kali Linux online training course. It also coincided with the online release of the new book, Kali Linux Revealed: Mastering the Penetration Testing Distribution. This first official book covering the Kali Linux distribution from Offsec Press is now available for download, free of charge, as well as in hard copy for purchase.

So many resources!

The Kali Linux Revealed book compliments the Kali Linux Documentation site but dives deeper. The Documentation site was created to be a more readily accessible reference tool; the Kali Linux Revealed book provides a deeper dive into the subject matter that only a book or more comprehensive manual would allow.

Kali Linux Revealed

Kali Linux’s new book, Kali Linux Revealed: Mastering the Penetration Testing Distribution, focuses on the Kali Linux platform to help its users understand and maximize it. The book details Kali Linux’s features and fundamentals, dives into the Debian package manager, and tackles more advanced topics such as kernel compilation, industrial strength encryption, and many others. The Kali Linux manual and the new Kali Linux training course were designed to be resources for users seeking to earn the KLCP.
