It is no secret that we at Redact value a person’s online security. Whether it be from our own product (which you can download for free here), or from this very blog, we work to keep not just our own users, but the overall public informed about general information and potential threats to that security. So, when a unique opportunity to enrich our audience’s knowledge presents itself, it is an understatement to say we are eager to share it- and a certain information security company has been generous enough to bring such an opportunity.

Offensive Security (OffSec), the creators of Kali Linux, recently announced that they would be livestreaming a penetration test course using Kali Linux on the popular streaming platform, Twitch.

The best part about it? It’s entirely free!

About the Course

Typically, this course has been only available through a paywall and is widely used as a preparation tool for the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification exam and was taught in-person. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the course had to transition to an online format.

As the creators themselves put it, “OffSec Live is our attempt to take what is great about OffSec Academy, and our learnings about successful student learning journeys, and make it available to all students…”

If you are eager to get a thorough review of this course, however, you can still purchase it and get specific, bonus perks during the Twitch livestream, such as being able to talk directly with mentors and instructors via Discord, as well as having access to unique exercises and lab machines.
