As a K12 educator in cybersecurity, I am experienced with how difficult it is to get started in teaching the topic. Years of tinkering, testing, and research has given me the ability to explain what works and what the industry uses. The purpose of being an educator is to prepare students for a career. This workshop is a primer on the Kali OS and its tools. I see this as a necessity in the cybersecurity field, as this is the OS that most security teams will use. Time permitting this workshop will cover the basics of Linux commands, Wget, TheHarvester, Social engineering toolkit (SET), Ncat, Nmap, Metasploit, and Wireshark. The workshop will place you in the shoes of a hacker creating a fast credential harvesting website, creating a IRC chat room, and exploiting vulnerabilities in Metasploitable 3. The workshop will require Virginia Cyber Range access to complete the hands-on labs. Educators will be provided with a PowerPoint, resource list, video tutorial, and the project files VIA download. It requires no prior knowledge, but some understanding of network protocols will be beneficial.
