Kali Linux: The Ultimate Penetration-Testing Tool? by David Strom.
From the post:
Kali.org’s version of Linux is an advanced penetration testing tool that should be a part of every security professional’s toolbox. Penetration testing involves using a variety of tools and techniques to test the limits of security policies and procedures. What Kali has done is collect just about everything you’ll need in a single CD. It includes more than 300 different tools, all of which are open source and available on GitHub. It’s incredibly well done, especially considering that it’s completely free of charge.
A new version, 1.0.5, was released earlier in September and contains more goodies than ever before, including the ability to install it on just about any Android phone, various improvements to its wireless radio support, near field communications, and tons more. Let’s take a closer look.
