Live Hacking DVD is a new Linux distribution packed with tools and utilities for ethical hacking, penetration testing and countermeasure verification. Based on Ubuntu this ‘Live CD” runs directly from the DVD and doesn’t require installation on your hard-drive. Once booted you can use the included tools to test, check, ethically hack and perform penetration tests on your own network to make sure that it is secure from outside intruders.
As well as the standard Linux networking tools like ping, wget, curl, telnet and ssh, the Live Hacking DVD has tools for DNS enumeration and reconnaissance as well as utilities for foot-printing, password cracking and network sniffing. It also has programs for spoofing and a set of wireless networking utilities.
The Live Hacking DVD is designed for ethical computer hacking, meaning that it contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network but using the tools and techniques that more malicious hackers would use.
The Live Hacking DVD is based on open source technology and uses the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution as its base. All the tools included can be freely found in either the Ubuntu repositories on from the Internet. The DVD is designed to be a platform to help IT security professionals (as well as those with a general interest in information security) to start, understand and conduct penetration tests and ethical hacking.
The Live Hacking Mini CD is a small Linux distribution designed for ethical computer hacking. Based on its bigger brother (the Live Hacking DVD) this mini distribution contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network by using the tools and techniques employed by more malicious hackers.
The Live Hacking Mini CD is a ‘Live CD’ meaning that it runs directly from the CD and doesn’t need installing on your hard-drive. Once booted you can use the included utilities to perform penetration tests and ethically hack on your own network to ensure that it is secure from outside intruders.
To reduce this Linux distribution to a smaller size, the GNOME user interface has been removed, meaning that this is a command-line only distribution. However this doesn’t detract from the power of the tools and utilities included as most of the penetration testing and ethical hacking tools are command line tools. As well as the standard Linux networking tools the Live Hacking Mini CD has tools for DNS enumeration and reconnaissance as well as utilities for foot-printing, password cracking and network sniffing. It also has programs for spoofing and a set of wireless networking utilities. Once booted checkout the /lh directory to see the tools included.
