Kali Linux (formerly known as BackTrack) is a Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing. Kali contains several hundred tools which are geared towards various information security tasks, such as Penetration Testing, Security research, Computer Forensics and Reverse Engineering. Kali Linux is developed, funded and maintained by Offensive Security, a leading information security training company. More than 600 penetration testing tools included. Completely customizable. Free (as in beer) and always will be, Open source Git tree. FHS compliant:- Kali adheres to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, allowing Linux users (formerly known as BackTrack)to easily locate binaries, support files, libraries, etc. Wide-ranging wireless device support:- A regular sticking point with Linux distributions has been supported for wireless interfaces. We have built Kali Linux to support as many wireless devices as we possibly can, allowing it to run properly on a wide variety of hardware and making it compatible with numerous USB and other wireless devices. Developed in a secure environment:- The Kali Linux team is made up of a small group of individuals who are the only ones trusted to commit packages and interact with the repositories, all of which is done using multiple secure protocols. GPG signed packages and repositories:- Every package in Kali Linux is signed by each individual developer who built and committed it, and the repositories subsequently sign the packages as well. Multi-language support:- Although penetration tools tend to be written in English, we have ensured that Kali includes true multilingual support, allowing more users to operate in their native language and locate the tools they need for the job. ARMEL and ARMHF support:- Since ARM-based single-board systems like the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black, among others, are becoming more and more prevalent and inexpensive, we knew that Kali’s ARM support would need to be as robust as we could manage, with fully working installations for both ARMEL and ARMHF systems. Kali Linux is available on a wide range of ARM devices and has ARM repositories integrated with the mainline distribution so tools for ARM are updated in conjunction with the rest of the distribution.
NB:- Latest stable version of the software will be delivered.
