In this introductory challenge, you'll start by logging into a Unix system using the username and password "pentesterlab." Once logged in, your task is to read the content of a file named "key.txt" located in your home directory. This exercise is aimed at familiarizing you with basic Unix commands, such as `cat` for displaying file contents.

The video transcript provides additional insights, explaining the importance of password confidentiality and demonstrating how to navigate the Unix file system. You'll learn how to use commands like `pwd` to check your current directory and `cd` to move between directories. By the end of this exercise, you should have a solid understanding of basic Unix operations and be able to navigate and manipulate files within the system.
