Looking for security tools – try Auditor

If you’re hunting for security tools, it may be worth checking out Auditor, a CD based Linux platform with a huge number of tools all packed into it. I came across it after reading an article on How
to Crack WEP
which recommends the package based on some of the tools it contains
(namely Kismet, airodump, void11, aireplay and aircrack)

Here’s the blurb:

The Auditor security collection is a Live-System based on KNOPPIX. With
no installation whatsoever, the analysis platform is started directly from the CD-Rom
and is fully accessible within minutes. Independent of the hardware in use, the Auditor
security collection offers a standardised working environment, so that the build-up
of know-how and remote support is made easier. Even during the planning and development
stages, our target was to achieve an excellent user-friendliness combined with an
optimal toolset. Professional open-source programs offer you a complete toolset to
analyse your safety, byte for byte. In order to become quickly proficient within the
Auditor security collection, the menu structure is supported by recognised phases
of a security check. (Foot-printing, analysis, scanning, wireless, brute-forcing,
cracking). By this means, you instinctively find the right tool for the appropriate
task. In addition to the approx. 300 tools, the Auditor security collection contains
further background information regarding the standard configuration and passwords,
as well as word lists from many different areas and languages with approx. 64 million
entries. Current productivity tools such as web browser, editors and graphic tools
allow you to create or edit texts and pictures for reports, directly within the Auditor
security platform. Many tools were adapted, newly developed or converted from other
system platforms, in order to make as many current auditing tools available as possible
on one CD-ROM. Tools like Wellenreiter and Kismet were equipped with an automatic
hardware identification, thus avoiding irritating and annoying configuration of the
wireless cards.
