You can easily utilize Raspberry Pi as a desktop replacement for minimal tasks like internet surfing, file managing and playing some media files. But we are talking about how we can use Raspberry Pi for more professional tasks like network scanning and data analyzing.
Offensive security announced that the official support for Kali Linux on Raspberry Pi 4. That’s expected news from offensive security. Usually, they release their official support for Raspberry Pi within 1 or 2 months after release it.
If you already read my Kali Linux in 2019 article, you know that the Kali is not for regular desktop users. It’s specially designed for cybersecurity experts with 500+ well-tuned penetration testing tools.
So, if you are an ethical hacker or learning to be a security professional, now you can buy a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 1GB of RAM for $35 and install Kali Linux on it to get started.
If you’re new to Linux, I recommend you to start with Ubuntu or Mint for learning basic Linux commands. Nowadays easy to find lots of Linux tutorials from YouTube and free PDF files from a well-known web called Allitebooks.
I prefer you to start with this e-book from Allitebooks.
