README is not updated, but presentations are added from time to time.

April 2016

Not much to write here, the latest updates are in presentations, especially the Pentest series I-IV

March 2015

Welcome to my security-courses repo.

It contains LaTeX slides I use for presenting various subjects.

You are welcome to copy from it.

Note: do know that screenshots and images will probably have some restrictions. I try to reference all sources in the presentations, and IANAL but quoting seems OK in most jurisdictions.

I have moved to latexmk, so you may want to add the following to your $HOME/.latexmkrc

$pdf_mode = 1;

This should make it easy to produce PDF files just by doing: hlk@kunoichi:pentest-I-foredrag$ latexmk Latexmk: This is Latexmk, John Collins, 5 February 2015, version: 4.43a. Latexmk: applying rule 'pdflatex'...

I have decided to use ONLY UTF-8 too, so some files need to be converted - work in progress iconv −f ISO−8859−1 −t UTF−8

February 2014

Welcome to security-courses a free template and security courses written in LaTeX code, but assumed to be used anyway by novices.

Feel free to send comments to me:

Howto get the sources

You need to use Github to get the sources, try cloing it.

What you need You need some installation of LaTeX, for instance the TeXLive See this reference:

Included in this distribution is also: pagetrans.sty - for making fancy page transitions foiltex - needed for foils.cls

Extra software, download from internet ppower4 post processor, if you want fancy stuff like pause and page transitions, home page is: Update: ppower4 wont work anymore :-( need to find replacement

When LaTeX is installed you should update your settings, to easily use your own extensions etc.


You need to tell LaTeX to find included files and packages with the TEXINPUTS

As an example my login profile on my Mac OS X laptop contains the following settings suitable for TeXLive and this package: export TEXINPUTS=:~/projects/security-courses// MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf/doc/man INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf/doc/info

First steps

Look into the doc subdirectory for some samples and the documentation. The documentation is mostly a sample of how the final output can look and includes some common construct to get you started using this.

Second you might want to take a look at the hackerworkshop course which is a full course included.

Why LaTeX

I love LaTeX and it easily produces high-quality output both for printing and screen presentations.

If you don't know LaTeX then use the existing presentations as they probably contain most of what you need.

Adding LaTeX code in the middle of a document is wrong, you should rather update the classes and stylesheet for that! (I know some of my presentations contain LaTeX-code in the middle, sorry I am lazy ;-) )

License This is supposed to be free. Free as in you can do almost whatever you like according to the LICENSE - which is a standard BSD-like license. So you are free to use this even for commercial purposes.

Images are a special case as there are screenshots.

Screenshots are considered to be references and citations, which according to danish law are allowed to be included. Most screenshots are from Open Source projects anyway, but if you have any problems with this please contact the developers or me.

Best regards
