10 Things To Do After Installing Kali Linux On Your System


What’s up An0ns, it’s An0n Ali here,
whether you’re installing Kali Linux on a virtual machine or dual booting it
with Windows, these are the top ten things you should do after setting it up
to make sure that it’s secure and uses the best tools available the first important thing to do, is to
set official and correct Kali Linux repositories to do that open up your browser
and head to Kali Docs once opened, scroll down and go to sources.list repositories copy this and head to>files other locations computer then open this
etc folder and head to this apt folder from here edit this sources.list
file by erasing all these lines then pasting the ones we copied okay so another
one of the most important things to do after installing Kali is to update it, so
update upgrade and disk upgrade your Kali installation simply open up the
terminal type in the following apt commands then hit enter and as you can see our
Kali installation has started updating simply wait a few seconds until it
completes Git is a primary tool for copying or cloning code repositories
found on github it is a must-have tool for penetration testers looking to
expand their toolset beyond what’s available in the default Kali
repositories to download Git, open up a terminal then simply type apt-get
install git a multiplexer is a tiling terminal
emulator that allows us to open several terminal sessions inside one single
window the major benefit to this is being able
to see all of our open terminal sessions at once and not layer the windows on top
of each other there are many noteworthy multiplexers Tilix however is an open source and reliable option it is available in
Kali’s apt repositories and could be installed using this command apt-get
install Tilix Some versions of Kali are geared toward
minimalist pen-testers who prefer not to have hundreds attacking tools
pre-installed this means we’ll have to install our favorite tools manually, the
types of tools we use vary based on our skill set in the areas of expertise but
these are some of the most popular hacking tools these tools can be
installed using this command, I will also put it in the description down below for
you guys (time saver) many applications like the chromium
browser and the tor browser should never be opened or used as a root user such applications rely heavily upon low level permissions to deliver some degree of
security it might be beneficial to some users to create a low privileged user
account for such activities to create a new account simply type add user and
name the account, I’m going to name it: tor then create a password it will now
ask you for some information, you can either leave it blank or fill it up it’s
totally up to you once created go ahead and add this account to sudo group to do is type in usermod – aG sudo and then the name of the account like this ok our account is now ready to be used TOR is available in Kali’s repositories but anonymity software should be acquired directly from the source further more Kali’s version of TOR is not reliably maintained or updated this means we could be missing critical stability and security updates to download TOR directly from its source first add the Tor project repositories
to your apt repository list by typing in the following command to save time you
can open the description down below and simply copy paste these lines next download the Tor project package signing key and import it into your apt hearing
using this command line you’ll see the OK output when the signing key has been
added to your keyring next update apt using apt – get update command now to install TOR, use this command type Y to continue and once it’s done
you’ll be using the latest version available for TOR dpkg is a powerful
tool but it doesn’t install dependencies automatically, what we need is some
package installer that can go out and fetch all required dependencies while
installing a .dev package the best one out there is G Debi you can install it
using the following command no Linux installation is complete
without a proper fully fledged FTP Client FileZilla is the best one out
there to install it, use the following command the default password for every
Kali Linux installation is the same which makes it very easy to automate
attacks also the default SSH keys can allow an attacker to intercept your
communications when you’re controlling something like the raspberry pi via SSH to change the SSH keys first change into the directory now type in the following
command to reset the SSH keys from the default ones for your Kali systems password, enter
passwd root, then enter in your new password afterwards
retype it to confirm okay An0ns these were the top 10 things you should do
after installing Kali Linux on your machine if this tutorial worked for you
