Kali Linux Is A Security-Testing Suite

Popular Wi-Fi password cracking tool Backtrack -- used for security testing purposes only, of course -- gets a special release today in the form of Kali Linux. This new distribution targets enterprise security, offering a suite of helpful tools for rigorous testing.

The Kali distribution includes Metasploit, Wireshark, John the Ripper, Nmap, Aircrack-ng and other tools to provide a security testing suite you can easily boot up from a Live CD. The distribution comes in not only 32- and 64-bit Inter flavours, but also works with ARM-based systems as well. That means Kali can run on some Chromebooks and even the Raspberry Pi. Check out the Kali site for the official downloads and more information.

    Backtrack is NOT a Wi-Fi password cracking tool. It includes some, but it's like saying Windows is something meant to send emails...

    Very Nice to see that we can use a distro loaded with all these security features.
