For those who do not know, Kali Linux is an operating system that mainly serves to make penetration and security testing on our computers or servers, that is, attacking ourselves to see what vulnerabilities we have and correct them immediately to prevent other unwanted users from attacking us.

Kali Linux is from the same developers as the famous Backtrack operating system, which also aimed to do security tests, which decided to discontinue Backtrack and go all out with Kali Linux. Two years have passed since Kali Linux 1.0 and even though I still don't have the Backtrack fame, is an operating system used by computer security technicians around the world.
