Configuring Kali Linux in the AWS Cloud with Public IP?

Problem carrying your Kali Linux with you? Or are you struggling hard to get the public IP associated with Kali Linux? Both and many of the problems can be solved by hosting the Kali Linux in the Amazon AWS (EC2) Cloud.

This video tutorial discusses the steps:

  • Configure the Amazon AWS account
  • Configure the Kali Linux instance in the AWS
  • Access the cloud based OS via SSH (using PuTTy in Windows and SSH in your Linux)
  • Install GNOME desktop environment on Kali Linux using the terminal
  • Setup the SSH tunneling (use TightVNC to access the GUI of the cloud based OS)
