  • Somehow get this repository into your ~/.cheat directory.


Use this like you'd normally use cheat. For example, use cheat ncat to display the ncat cheatsheet.


These security cheatsheets were a part of a project for the Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing course offered at the University of Florida. Expanding on the default set of cheatsheets, the purpose of these cheatsheets are to aid penetration testers/CTF participants/security enthusiasts in remembering commands that are useful, but not frequently used. Most of the tools that will be covered have been included in our class and are available in Kali Linux.
