Re: [orca-list] Advice from blind Linux users

Kalilinux is probably the best linux for security specialists. All of the security tools come pre-installed and you can take courses on the kalilinux website specific to cyber security and use of kalilinux. Understand though kalilinux installs as a graphical user interface you have command line access through terminals.

Start by making sure you're very familiar with the shell and utilities. Read
William E. Shotts, Jr., The Linux Command Line.
for details.

After that, read a good book on Linux system administration. I don't know any
that are recent and good, but they're bound to be available.

I would recommend Michael Kerrisk, The Linux Programming Interface. You can
buy it in electronic form from the publisher. It received a very favourable
review from Linux Weekly News when it was published.

You should definitely read a book about Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux). I
don't know which is the best book, as I haven't learned SELinux; but if you're
serious about Linux security, you should learn it. You can practice with a
Linux distribution such as Fedora that uses SELinux. SELinux provides
mandatory access controls; it's very serious technology.
