Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Firstly, if you're serious about the field of security, you should stop referring to it as " 1337 h4xing".
Good security related material is often found in the subjects which it is derived from. eg Mathematis, Cryptography, Networking, Operating Systems, Computer Architecture etc. So try googling along those lines.
I see...........I guess I picked the wrong name for the topic
although........a script kiddie is better than nothing............
let me rephrase the question, what is the ground knowledge required to begin studying security ?
the number of topics you listed here is quite large, but I do believe they have a certain order, which comes first, which requires which and so forth...........
also I would like to ask you how deep is the attention these topics require, which require more and which are not as important as others, maybe you could go into a little more detail on that ?
is a crypto accelerator is a requirement for all security applications ?
it seems as though you think we are coming from an angle where we think we're cooler and better than some skiddie cos we once managed to DDOS mylittlepony.com. we're not. we *know* we're better than skiddies cos we're intelligent, respectful and have NO interest whatsoever in blackhat activity. it is not welcome here in any form. no nods. no winks, no nudge-nudge. we are not interested. it's a misconception that really isn't appreciated.
so all this 1337 cr#p is a misconception..........strange to hear it, blackhat ?
I know what you mean, it's a shame that people taking these things that way.......
but thanks for clearing this out, im sure many people would like to know how security-minded people would like to be taken
up until now I wasn't quite sure what exactly this is all about, but now it seems to be much clearer than I firstly thought, I guess those number-cr#ps came from those same script kiddies as you call them did they ?
and making the real people look a little different, but obviously that does not affect them.......does it ?
well, I have checked that site, and it looks chool, im gonna read it up for a while, although I would still like to know a good starting point (what subject should I study first ?) because here there is also alot of material here.......
at least now I will know not to use any of that number cr#p anymore ..........
