Hacking is an engaging field but it is surely not easy. To become a hacker one has to have an attitude and curiosity of learning and adapting new skills. You must have a deep knowledge of computer systems, programming languages, operating systems and the journey of learning goes on and on. Some people think that a hacker is always a criminal and do illegal activities but they are wrong. Actually many big companies hire hackers to protect their systems and information and are highly paid. We have prepared a list of 12 most important steps necessary to become a hacker, have a deeper look.

* Learn UNIX/LINUX <KALI Linux is best option for hacking>

UNIX/LINUX is an open source operating system which provides better security to computer systems. It was first developed by AT&T in Bell labs and contributed a lot in the world of security. You should install LINUX freely available open source versions on your desktops as without learning UNIX/LINUX, it is not possible to become a hacker.

* Code in C or python language <you can also learn code in this blog>

 C programming is the base of learning UNIX/LINUX as this operating system is coded in C or python programming which makes it the most powerful language as compared to other programming languages. To become a hacker you should master in C or python language. python is best option for beginner you can learn python language in our youtube channel:

In This channel you learn about Python language. In some day I upload C & C++
language for beginner.    

* Learn to code in more than one Programming Language

 It is important for a person in the hacking field to learn more than one programming. There are many programming languages to learn such as Python, JAVA, C++,C & PHP and also master in HTML today i also upload about html.

* Learn Networking Concepts

Another important and essential step to become a hacker is to be good at networking concepts and understanding how the networks are created. You need to know the differences between different types of networks and must have a clear understanding of TCP/IP and UDP to exploit vulnerabilities (loop holes) in system.
Understanding what LAN, WAN, VPN, Firewall is also important.
You must have a clear understanding and use of network tools such as Wireshark, NMAP for packet analyzing, network scanning etc.

*  Learn More Than One Operating Systems 

It is essential for a hacker to learn more than one operating system. There are many other Operating systems apart from Windows, UNIX/LINUX etc. Every system has a loop hole, hacker needs it to exploit it

* Learn Cryptography

To become a successful hacker you need to master the art of cryptography. Encryption and Decryption are important skills in hacking. Encryption is widely done in several aspects of information system security in authentication, confidentiality and integrity of data. Information on a network is in encrypted form such as passwords. While hacking a system, these encrypted codes needs to be broken, which is called decryption.

* Learn more and more about hacking

Go through various tutorials, eBooks written by experts in the field of hacking. In the field of hacking, learning is never ending because security changes every day with new updates in systems.

* Keep Experiment A Lot

* Continue never ending Learning
