README is not updated very often
Welcome to security-courses a free template and security courses written in LaTeX code, but assumed to be useful for others.
It contains LaTeX slides I use for presenting various subjects.
You are welcome to copy from it.
Feel free to send comments to me: email@example.com
This is supposed to be free. Free as in you can do almost whatever you like. My materials are licensed under BSD 3-Clause License
- a very open source friendly license. So you are free to use this even for commercial purposes.
Images are a special case as there are screenshots.
Note: I do know that screenshots and images will probably have some restrictions.
IANAL but screenshots are to my knowledge 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 me.
I try to reference all sources in the presentations, and IANAL but quoting seems OK in most jurisdictions.
How to get the sources
You need to use Github to get the sources, try cloning it.
What you need
You need some installation of LaTeX, for instance the TeXLive See this reference: http://www.tug.org/texlive/
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
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=$MANPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf/doc/man INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf/doc/info
Look into the first-presentation files 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.
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 ;-) )
