Live Hacking – Linux live distribution focused on penetration testing and ethical hacking
Live Hacking DVD and Live Hacking CD are Linux live distribution focused on penetration testing and ethical hacking. With no installation required, the analysis platform is started directly from the CD/DVD-Rom and is fully accessible within minutes to conduct live hacking and penetration tests.
Live Hacking distribution comes in two forms. A full Linux desktop (Live Hacking DVD) including a graphical user interface (GNOME) and applications like Firefox along with tools and utilities for DNS enumeration, reconnaissance, foot-printing, password cracking and network sniffing. For greater accessibility there is a Live Hacking menu to help you quick find and launch the tools.
The second variation is the Live Hacking Mini CD, which is command line only. 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. The included /lh directory has symbolic links to the different tools included.
The system requirements for the Live Hacking DVD and CD are quite reasonable. A fast Pentium 3 or any Pentium 4 class processor (or greater) is sufficient. For the desktop version 512MB of memory is required with 1GB recommended. For the command line version just 128MB of memory is needed.
