Kali Linux" is a project of the BackTrack developers and is aimed as a security OS to experienced users. Major innovation: The distribution now relies completely on a Debian substructure and uses Gnome 3 as a desktop. Alternatively, official versions with KDE, Mate, Xfce, LXDE and Enlightenment E17 are available for download .
This brings several advantages: The connection to the Debian repository gives the system faster current software versions - this also includes test and unstable versions, with which you are always up to date. Access to the source code of all included tools facilitates quick adjustments.
The preseeding feature of Debian automates the installation of "Kali Linux"; This saves a lot of time in the company. Kali also allows you to create custom images that allow you to use a desktop environment of your choice.
Some of the preinstalled security tools include: Aircrack-ng , Nmap , Wireshark , Metasplot Framework , Burp Suite, John, Maltego, sqlmap, and zaproxy.
