♨ Learn UNIX

You cannot be a hacker without learning UNIX. UNIX is multi-user, multi-tasking computer operating system designed to boost system security. A huge number of web servers are hosted on UNIX-based servers.

While learning a few essential commands is good enough to get you started, in-depth understanding of the internal frameworks of this operating system will be a big boost in your hacking skills.

♨Learn More Than One Operating System

Besides UNIX, familiarize yourself with other conventional operating systems such as Windows and Android.

Something worth noting about Microsoft systems is that they are closed-source systems with vast vulnerabilities. Therefore, learning how programs are written for Windows as well as how different applications behave on this operating system will help you a bunch.

♨Learn Networking Concepts

As a professional hacker, your networking concepts need to be sharp. To successfully control a network, you need to know as much about it as possible.Collect the fundamentals of your network, find how it is set up and figure out an attack vector, and note what you will do for every attack vector.

Having in-depth knowledge of various networks such as TCP/IP and UDP protocol, subnet, LAN, WAN and VPN will significantly enable you to exploit the vulnerabilities.

♨Learn Cryptography

Cryptography is the technology used to secure communication in the presence of third parties such as in SSL-based internet communication. This technique is used extensively in computer passwords, ATM cards and e-commerce platforms.

As a professional hacker, you need to master the art of cryptography.

Learn techniques that can be used for password-cracking, and try to crack a few passwords. Try out various encryption algorithms and establish why they are hard to decrypt.

Partake in challenges for decrypting a powerful encryption. A great hacker should be able to point out weaknesses in an encryption algorithm and develop a program that can demonstrate how decryption is achievable without much information about keys.

♨Experiment A Lot

Nothing beats practical application. Experimenting is a crucial step in establishing yourself as an expert hacker. Starting off is as simple as downloading a virtual lab application like Oracle VirtualBox to carry out your hacking experiments.

Some of the essentials you will need to remember as you experiment include: creating a backup before starting an experiment, starting small, having checkpoints as you proceed, documenting your progress, knowing when to stop, and iterating and automating repetitive tasks.

♨Write Open Source Software

Write useful computer security software and give the program sources away to the public. Organizations such as Mozilla are more than willing to sponsor these types of projects.

Contributing to open source security projects such as anti-virus, anti-spam, firewall and data removals come in handy in augmenting your dexterity as a hacker.

Hackerdom’s most respected hackers are individuals who have written programs that meet a widespread need, and given them away for everyone to use.

♨ Create notes
Most of the time, you will be hacking for clients. And they would probably want to see a breakdown of exactly what you did. It can be frustrating for the client if your report does not give enough information on how you carried out your testing or how to reproduce an issue.
As a professional hacker, notes and screenshots should be your best friend. Save everything—starting from your tools’ output, logs, and network traffic to and from the target. While this might appear like a lot of work, it’s a smart move that will help you verify your hard work.

♨♨Final Word

Thinking outside the box and going an extra mile is what separates a good hacker from a great hacker. Professional hacking requires a skill set that expands past the ordinary script. It requires continuous learning.

While the tips above are not an exhaustive guide, they are fantastic in helping you walk down the road of being a professional hacker. Try them out and share your experience.
