    I’m sorry for this kind of question, but bare with me for i am new to this…

    I don’t really understand what is this “Kali” nor what the Linux have to do with it.

    From my point of view (from what i understood so far), Kali is some kind of program based on Linux, is that correct? If so, how to i get it/install it?

    Can any of you redirect me to a basic tutorial for this? Like, the first steps/set ups…

    I would like to learn more about ethical hacking and cyber security since i started working in a Cyber Security company (i work with marketing btw).

    Anyway… thank you for your time!
