BackTrack

BackTrack BackTrack is a Slackware-based Linux live CD security distro focused on penetration testing. Designed to be run from CD, it provides ready access to a wide range of security and penetration testing tools.

Origin – Home Page: Switzerland – BackTrack

Desktop: KDE, Fluxbox

Price: Free and Open Source

Key Features: Tight integrated of Metasploit, which is a development platform for creating security tools and exploits. Aligned to penetration testing methodologies and assessment frameworks (ISSAF and OSSTMM).

Comments: BackTrack was formed when two pre-existing security distros – Whax and Auditor Security Collection – were merged. With more than 300 different up-to-date tools, “which are logically structured according to the work flow”, BackTrack is considered a swiss army knife for security pros.
