Re: Hello

  Hello and welcome to the forum.  There is no real difference in Ethical hacking and hacking as far as the process goes. It’s more about why you engage in the act.  The ethical hacker has good intentions. A more important question might be why do you want to learn?

Re: Hello

Hello Rish and welcome.

As Kev has pointed out, the ethical side of things is very important. On the technical side it would help us to know what kind of networking background you have. If you have none, then I recomend you start off with an intensive study of TCP/IP. Go to this link and read through it. Click on all the links there and read through those too, particularly those at the end under "External links".

A good understanding of OS's won't hurt either. Know Windows and also UNIX and/or Linux. A good place to start studying UNIX is here.

There are 10 kinds of people, those that understand binary, and those that don't.

Re: Hello

Here's a couple places where you can learn by doing and not from reading a book. They both have been around awhile, so the solutions have been made public years ago

Re: Hello

I hope you've spent or plan to spend some time managing servers, applications, networks, and users first. A practical foundation is critical.
