I recently purchased a new laptop and I'm thinking of installing Kali Linux it so I can learn more about network security. Can I partition a Linux box so it's resistant to any security risks? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Nothing is ever fool proof, so instead of partitioning your box, why not just get a VMware program and install that on your system then install Kali. This way, during your learning, if you happen to make a mistake, you just delete that portion and create it again, and still be able to use your laptop.

My laptop has Ubuntu on it, and in VMware, I also have another Ubuntu that I can mess with and not have to worry about messing up the laptop.  I can try out scripts and other things and not worry about the system.  You can also do this with Kali, which is a good program for pen testing.
