  • Kali Over Http

    Booting Kali Linux Live over HTTP

    Here at Offensive Security, we tend to use Kali Linux in unconventional ways – often making use of some really amazing features that Kali Linux has to offer. One of these interesting use-cases includes booting instances of Kali Linux Live over HTTP, directly to RAM. We realized there’s little documentation around this feature and thought we’d shed some light on it so others may enjoy this feature as well.

  • Raspbery Pi Luks

    Kali Linux on a Raspberry Pi (A/B+/2) with LUKS Disk Encryption

    With the advent of smaller, faster ARM hardware such as the new Raspberry Pi 2 (which now has a Kali image built for it), we’ve been seeing more and more use of these small devices as “throw-away hackboxes“. While this might be a new and novel technology, there’s one major drawback to this concept – and that is the confidentiality of the data stored on the device itself. Most of the setups we’ve seen do little to protect the sensitive information saved on the SD cards of these little computers. This fact, together with a nudge from friends is what prompted us to create a LUKS encrypted, NUKE capable Kali Linux image for our Raspberry Pi devices. The following blog post describes the process, so you can repeat it and make your own shiny shiny.

  • Multiple Persistent Usb Stores

    Kali USB – Multiple Persistent Stores

    One of the markings of the 1.0.7 Kali release was the introduction of Kali Live USB LUKS encrypted persistent storage, on which we further elaborated in one of our previous blog posts. However, we’re not done yet with USB persistent storage as more features in Kali remain to be explored. The feature we will discuss today boasts the ability to have multiple persistent USB storages which you can choose from at boot time. These multiple persistent storages can be either encrypted, or unencrypted, and can be chosen at boot time using the persistence-label boot parameter.

  • Drive Droid Kali Nethunter

    Bypassing Windows and OSX Logins with NetHunter & Kon-boot

    The Kali Linux NetHunter platform has many hidden features which we still haven’t brought to light. One of them is the DriveDroid application and patch set, which have been implemented in NetHunter since v1.0.2. This tool allows us to have NetHunter emulate a bootable ISO or USB, using images of our choosing. That’s right, you can use NetHunter as a boot device which holds a library of bootable ISOs and images…And so we begin:

  • Raspberry Pi Tft Support V2

    Kali with Raspberry Pi TFT support

    Several weeks ago a request in the Kali forums prompted us to look at the integration of the Adafruit 2.8in TFT touch screen for Kali Linux. A few weeks and much less hair later, we are happy to announce the availability of this image in our Offensive Security custom Kali images section.

  • Nethunter Update 1.0.2

    Kali Nexus NetHunter 1.0.2

    It’s been a week since our release of the Kali Linux NetHunter, and the feedback is amazing. A NetHunter community has sprung up from nowhere, and the forums and github pages are really active. We’re completely stoked about this community response, and are eager to see it grow. After an intense week of community testing and a slew of bugfixes (including shellshock), we thought it would be a good opportunity to release a NetHunter update. Please welcome NetHunter 1.0.2.

  • Evil Kali Access Point Red A

    Kali Linux Evil Wireless Access Point

    A few days ago, we had the opportunity to deploy a rogue access point that would steal user credentials using a fake, captive web portal, and provide MITM’d Internet services via 3G. We needed reliability and scalability in our environment as there would potentially be a large amount of, erm….”participants” in this wireless network. We were pretty happy with the result and quickly realized that we had created a new “Kali Linux recipe”. Or in other words, we could create a custom, bootable wireless evil access point image, which could do all sorts of wondrous things.

  • Kali Under The Hood Blog Red

    Announcing the Kali Linux Dojo

    For the past 6 months, we’ve been busy silently developing an advanced Kali Linux course the likes of which has not yet been seen in the industry. This set of in-depth, practical workshops focuses on the Kali operating system itself, demonstrating some of its advanced features and use-cases by its developers. As with all “Offensive Security” training, this workshop is intensive, educational, and addictively engaging. If you’ve ever wished for fluent proficiency with Kali Linux, this workshop is for you.

  • Kali Luks Persistent Usb Offsec Site

    Kali Encrypted USB Persistence

    A couple of days ago, we added an awesome new feature to Kali allowing users to set up a Live Kali USB with encrypted persistence. What this means is that you can now set up a bootable Kali USB drive allowing you to either boot to a “clean” Kali image or alternatively, overlay it with the contents of a persistent encrypted partition, allowing you to securely save your changes on the USB drive between reboots. If you add our LUKS nuke feature into this mix together with a 32GB USB 3.0 thumb drive, you’ve got yourself a fast, versatile and secure “Penetration Testing Travel Kit”.

  • Kali Recipe Offsec

    Kali Linux Recipes

    A couple of days ago, we received an e-mail from a university professor asking for advice regarding Linux distributions to be used in his security 101 classes. In its default configuration, Kali Linux wasn’t a 100% match for his needs, which were quite specific:
