How to become an Ethical Hacker

Who is Ethical Hacker?

An ethical hacker, also known as a white-hat hacker, is a security expert who does hacking for legal purposes such as finding weaknesses in a computer or network systems.
It also protects you from black-hat hackers; they are those who gain unauthorized access to a computer or network systems.

How to become?

First of all, you need to learn basic things like how the operating system works, how to manage and secure the network, and perfect knowledge of programming skills.

Python is the best programming language for hackers because as compared to other programming languages, it is easy and time-saving to write codes.
Suppose, if you want to print the text “Hello World” so in python it is only one line code compared to other programming languages such as c++ and java.
For Example :
To print a text hello world in python


print(“Hello World”)

To print a text hello world in C++

#include<iostream.h>

using namespace std;
int main()
{
cout << “Hello World\n”;
return 0;
}

To print a text hello world in java


class helloworld{
public static void main(String args[]){
System.out.println(“Hello World”);

So you can see, how python is very easy to write, and it is also very beneficial for a hacker to write and execute their script because sometimes in a cyberwar or upcoming attack they need to prepare tools as soon as possible to prevent their systems or organization from attackers.

Those who fascinated a career as an ethical hacker should consider a bachelor’s or master’s degree in information security and computer science.

    Hi nishant, this is Xiepsilon again, liked the work you did in this blog. Well, as always, I cannot resist my annoying habit.
    So, can you please tell me about Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and Firewall? Well, i would be happy to learn the basic things about them.
    One more thing, you said in ‘How to become?’ section that you need to know that how the operating system works, well, I wanna really know, how it does?

    Just keep doin what u r doin and thnx
