Five86-1 is another purposely built vulnerable lab with the intent of gaining experience in the world of penetration testing.
The ultimate goal of this challenge is to get root and to read the one and only flag.
We will look at creating password files and cracking hashed passwords, and look at connecting to ssh using keys.

This is Part 1, that goes as far as getting shell access to the server.
Part 2 will pick up there and move to get root on the server.
