  1. Hi Guys, I've been trying to find a solution to this problem for a while now but I am at a complete loss, I want to be able to lock and my laptop. However, I need to be able to do this without touching the keyboard at all, and without having to give a third party my login credentials. At the moment I'm having to get people to type the password in for me which as we all know is HORRIBLE security! Luckily the people around me I think I can trust, but I can't be 100% certain about some of them so I really want to find another solution. Handing over the keys to the kingdom to random carers is really getting to me now. Any solution you guys might be able to think of, any direction you could point me in or any other useful comments (useless comments reviewed on a case-by-case basis!) Would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  2. Hi There, thanks for getting back to me. Yes, I've played with both Parallels and virtualbox but I decided to go with Virtualbox mainly because of the headless mode; so that I can have the wireless card connected up to the Mac Mini in the backroom which is in turn running a copy of Virtualbox. This way I can vnc into the Mac Mini from my laptop and be able to use the virtual machine. So do you know what it is that seems to make some people think that running Kali on a dedicated box is better than running inside a VM? Again, thanks for the quick response.
  3. Hi guys, I've been watching the show since the very beginning, and definitely have deep faith in my technolust! :-) However today, I need some advice from the Hak5 hive mind. I've been experimenting with Backtrack for quite a while, working through courses and trying to teach myself the art and science of hacking. Up till now all of my experimenting and learning has been done inside of a virtual machine, usually Virtualbox on OS X. But the more I've been reading around the subject, the more it seems like I need to use Kali on its own machine, as the VM is not using all of the computers hardware and therefore not running at its full potential. But there is a slight snag with me dual booting, booting from a live CD or installing Kali on its own machine. I'm quadriplegic. Which means that I cannot physically put my hands on any piece of hardware, which as you might imagine makes hacking on things that much harder. I can't operate directly inside a Linux distro because none of them have the assistive technology I need to be able to use interact with the machine, which is why I use OS X because it has software that enables me to use my voice and a switch to control my computer. So, I imagine that I need a dedicated piece of hardware that can be set up initially by somebody with hands and thereafter I will have TOTAL CONTROL!! (ahem, sorry) I'm aware that this is somewhat of a edge case, but I really don't want to have to stop learning to hack because of my physical limitations rather than my intellectual ability. Has anybody got any ideas as to how I might go about doing this? I want to minimise my reliance upon other people's hands, and become an independent and totally hands-free hacker! So, hit me with your great ideas, any and all help would be wonderful and even just pointing me in the right direction of a solution would be just as good. Thanks in advance!
