    Can i learn ethical hacking without any IT or computer science/engineering background? No.

    and is it possible to learn online? Yes, and No.

    I know my above answer is a contradiction. I have my reasons, for giving that kind of response.

    which are some good sources? Me.

    Unfortunately I won't be taking your hand to guide you where you want to go. If you want it bad enough then you have to go get what you want.

       Hi. Let's explain this with an analogy ... What thopughts would You have if somebody posted this question? ;

       I need to open a door, I need to know ...

      1)  What is a door - & what does the "handle" or the "knob"  look like?

       2)  What do I do with the knob when I find it?

       3)  If the hamdle doesn't work what exactly do I do to rebuild it?

       4)  What if there's a lock - how will I know / what will it look like?

       5)  What is a "combination" ,,, What is a "key" ... What is a "pad"?.

       6)  When I open the dooir do I push, pull, flip, skip, jump, cartwheel, walk, or put on My iceskates & triple-axle somersault through it?.

            Get the idea?.

             G'Luck!!!

    Most hackers are self-taught, there aren't any courses for it. So to answer your question, can you learn it by yourself? Yes, in fact it's the only way to learn it.

    you can, but understanding how computers work and being familiar (intimately so) with the inner works of them will actually be advantageous. although, knowing how the average person uses computers can help, too.
