Linux LiveCD for security professionals/penetration testers



I hadn’t heard of this distro before, but read at distrowatch, that Troppix has released version 1.2 of their livecd. It supports many wireless chipsets, is aimed to improve look and feel and include the latest versions of several utilities (nessus, metasploit, aircrack).


I’m trying to remember the last penetration test livecd I tried. I think I’ve tried about 3 or 4 livecd’s geared towards security professionals and on the laptop I use they’ve all been lacking the precompiled driver for the wireless with the options required (promiscuous mode? – it’s been long enough I don’t recall) to use some of the wireless utilities. This is definitely (another item) for my short term to-do list.
