The Kcpentrix Project was founded in May 2005 , KCPentrix 1.0 was liveCD
designed to be a standalone Penetration testing toolkit for pentesters,
security analysts and System administrators
GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.) checks your network for all potential methods that a hacker might use to attack it. By analyzing the operating system and the applications running on your network, GFI LANguard N.S.S. identifies possible security holes. In other words, it plays the devilâ€™s advocate and alerts you to weaknesses before a hacker can find them, enabling you to deal with these issues before a hacker can exploit them.
Cain & Abel is a password recovery tool for Microsoft Operating Systems. It allows easy recovery of various kind of passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using Dictionary, Brute-Force and Cryptanalysis attacks, recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, recovering wireless network keys, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocol
The Metasploit Framework ("Metasploit") is a development platform for
creating security tools and exploits. Version 3.0 contains 177
exploits, 104 payloads, 17 encoders, and 3 nop modules. Additionally,
30 auxiliary modules are included that perform a wide range of tasks,
including host discovery, protocol fuzzing, and denial of service testing.
The Metasploit Framework is a development platform for creating security tools and exploits. The framework is used by network security professionals to perform penetration tests, system administrators to verify patch installations, product vendors to perform regression testing, and security researchers world-wide
THC-Hydra - the best parallized login hacker: for Samba, FTP, POP3, IMAP, Telnet, HTTP Auth, LDAP, NNTP, MySQL, VNC, ICQ, Socks5, PCNFS, Cisco and more. Includes SSL support and is part of Nessus
Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free open source utility for network exploration or security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. Nmap runs on most types of computers and both console and graphical versions are available. Nmap is free and open source (license).
SAINT, or the Security Administratorâ€™s Integrated Network Tool, uncovers areas of weakness and recommends fixes. With SAINTÂ® vulnerability assessment tool, you can:
- Detect and fix possible weaknesses in your networkâ€™s security before they can be exploited by intruders.
- Anticipate and prevent common system vulnerabilities.
- Demonstrate compliance with current government regulations such as FISMA, Sarbanes Oxley, GLBA, HIPAA, and COPPA
Nessus is the worldâ€™s most popular vulnerability scanner used in over 75,000 organizations world-wide. Many of the worldâ€™s largest organizations are realizing significant cost savings by using Nessus to audit business-critical enterprise devices and applications.
FireCAT is a Firefox Framework Map collection of the most useful security oriented extensions.
OWASP Tiger is a Windows application originally intented to be used for automating the process of testing various known ASP.NET security issues in hosted environments. However, it is much more versatile than that: it can help you construct and send a HTTP requests, receive and analyze the responses, match them against a set of conditions to produce alerts, notifications that something is wrong with the application(s) or service(s) being tested.
