Configuring IP Networking & Services using Raspberry Pi and Bash (Kali Linux)

Duration:

10 Days*

Audience:

This class is strictly available to Government Agencies and Law Enforcement Personnel.

Course Overview:

This advanced, mostly hands-on, course ensures a solid understanding of IPv4 and IPv6 functionality, network addressing and device configuration using the Raspberry Pi running Kali Linux. The course emphasis is on leveraging the versatility of the Raspberry Pi running Kali Linux in order to deploy a variety of potential real-world scenarios for professionals in less-than-traditional situations including configuring a Raspberry Pi as a GPS receiver, DHCP server, a DNS server, a network bridge, a wireless access point, a router, a firewall, an AutoSSH forwarder and a tunnel endpoint through which traffic can be forwarded. Students also learn to use the linux command line and bash scripting to create their own tools and automate common tasks.

Prerequisites:

This is a moderate-to-advanced level course. Assumptions we make about people attending this course:

  • You don’t need to be an expert at the Linux command line but knowledge of the basics is assumed (cd, mv, cp, ls, rm, etc.). Unless absolutely necessary, we don’t us a GUI on our Raspberry Pis.
  • A basic understanding of IP networking is assumed but you don’t have to be an expert on day one.

However, this is not an ‘intro to networking’ course. After a brief review, we break into a sprint.
