Kali Linux is a popular distribution for performing penetration testing. The Kali Linux team has announced a new certification program which will teach people how to properly use the Kali Linux platform. After almost two years in the making, it is with great pride that we announce today our new Kali Linux Professional certification - the first and only official certification program that validates one’s proficiency with the Kali Linux distribution. If you’re new to the information security field, or are looking to take your first steps towards a new career in InfoSec, the KLCP is a “must have” foundational certification. Built on the philosophy that “you’ve got to walk before you can run,” the KLCP will give you direct experience with your working environment and a solid foundation toward a future with any professional InfoSec work. As we continually see, those entering the Offensive Security PWK program with previous working experience with Kali, and a general familiarity with Linux, tend to do better in the real world OSCP exam." Details on the certification program and a new book, "Kali Linux Revealed: Mastering the Penetration Testing Distribution", are available on the project's website.
