Looking for Free Course Content

Hi there!
Just trying to learn the fundamentals of penetration testing hoping that someone will help me to search an online free course for me or books in pdf (or even book names with author names I"ll try to find them in the market) or any resource for an extreme newbie with a very basic knowledge of linux.

I want a comprehensive guide (or road map with resources given) on “how to start pen-testing as a beginning of career” and “how to master linux”.

I hope YOU will help me in a way that I can become a Penetration Tester.


Hello. Parrot has an open book archive that you can read and study: Index of /parrot/misc/misc/openbooks/.

After that you could go to hackthebox.com and practice there: https://academy.hackthebox.com


Thank You very much

Parrot Community: looking for the holy grail of pdfs to educate oneself

If I were completely new to networking, security, Linux and pentesting, I would get the basics down by preparing for and taking the following certifications to start off my penetration testing career:

  • CompTIA Network+ (or Cisco Networking Fundamentals\CCNA)
  • CompTIA Linux+ (or Linux Professional Institute’s LPI1 and LPI2)
  • CompTIA Security+
  • CompTIA Pentest+ (or many others)

I would follow the CompTIA path as the certs (as most do) need to be renewed every 3 years to stay valid, but taking another CompTIA cert renews all the earlier ones taken.

Seriously it is 2022. Just do some basic google search and youtube search and there will be thousand free contents.
Spoiler alert: crash courses from Google are awesome!

Thank You very much
