Auditor security collection

If you read my blog much, you know I am a fan of Knoppix-STD. It's a great "Security Tools Distribution" using the Knoppix Live system as a base for the information security professional.

This morning I read about Auditor security collection, the self proclaimed "Swiss Army Knife" for security assessments. It is a Knoppix-based, unified platform focused on penetration tests.

From the list of included tools, it's pretty impressive. Of course most of this is already included in STD, but if you wanted to check out an alternative focused on pentest, this might be the CD for you.

One of these days someone is going to have to make one of these CDs work on Windows. Maybe not as a "Live" CD, but as a suite of tools that just work when plugged in.

If I only had the time. *sigh*

There's already Windows one out there called Bart PE. It doesn't have pentesting tools, but adaware and anti-virus tools work pretty well on it. It's also a great recovery cd and has a pretty large community that's working to add stuff to it. Just search google for it . . .
