Hello forum dwellers.

I'm relatively new to this Operating system, actually, so new that its still downloading awaiting mounting.
I am interested in getting into... security testing, and am wondering if where all of you have learned all of your knowledge from.
Are there any good books that you can point me to? any online courses? forum posts? etc.

I would appreciate any crumble of information that could lead me in the right direction of learning the ins and outs of network integrity testing.

Currently i am running off linux mint, with backbox 4.0 on a bootable USB as a secondary OS. If it turns out Backbox is a wonderful OS would it be practical to use that as a permanent everyday operating system?
