G'day all!

During @Lee McWhorter 's excellent introduction to XK0-005, I promised to start publishing all the exercises I've made for my students.

It's a very rough MVP, with just a small set of all the labs, but here's a start.

-> https://github.com/unixerius/XK0-004/tree/first-set

In all, my class spans 16 weeks/lessons, so you'll understand there's plenty more to add in that Github repo. I wanted to start with the big chunk of shell-scripting exercises.

That link leads to a specific branch in the repo. At some point that'll get merged into the main repo and it may disappear.

I've added a few of my lessons. I'm only adding the lab assignments, while excluding the full slide decks for the training course. Those may follow later.

By now it's better to just follow the main branch -> https://github.com/unixerius/XK0-004/

Almost since inception, I've been installing Linux and using Linux. This was the virtual machine that I was chatting about for virtualbox in regards to open source security investigations. This group (TraceLabs) really does a great job helping find missing persons. If you have candidates / students that are going for Linux that is also thinking of pursing CySA+, this is a fantastic Linux distro for investigations that can really be a win/win for learning Linux and also learing tools that can help out in security investigations even on a protective standpoint (threat hunting). All in Sun Virtualbox which is a free hypervisor-II solution. The VM is based on Kali Linux but has some other packages installed and already pre-made: as well: https://www.tracelabs.org/initiatives/osint-vm
