Ubuntu Pentest Edition is a gnome based linux designed as a complete system which can also be used for penetration testing. Ubuntu Pentest Edition has a big repository of software (Ubuntu repositories) and high customization possibilities. The system is made in a way that you can configure it to suite your needs.
SAINT is the Security Administratorâ€™s Integrated Network Tool. It is used to non-intrusively detect security vulnerabilities on any remote target, including servers, workstations, networking devices, and other types of nodes. It will also gather information such as operating system types and open ports. The SAINT graphical user interface provides access to SAINTâ€™s data management, scan configuration, scan scheduling, and data analysis capabilities through a web browser. Different aspects of the scan results are presented in hyperlinked HTML pages, and reports on complete scan results can be generated and saved.
Nessus is the world’s most popular vulnerability scanner used in over 75,000 organizations world-wide. Many of the world’s largest organizations are realizing significant cost savings by using Nessus to audit business-critical enterprise devices and applications.
x5s is a Fiddler addon which aims to assist penetration testers in finding cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. It’s main goal is to help you identify the hotspots where XSS might occur by:
- Detecting where safe encodings were not applied to emitted user-inputs
- Detecting where Unicode character transformations might bypass security filters
- Detecting where non-shortest UTF-8 encodings might bypass security filters
Burp Suite is an integrated platform for attacking web applications. It contains all of the Burp tools with numerous interfaces between them designed to facilitate and speed up the process of attacking an application. All tools share the same robust framework for handling HTTP requests, persistence, authentication, downstream proxies, logging, alerting and extensibility.
The Suricata Engine is an Open Source Next Generation Intrusion Detection and Prevention Engine. This engine is not intended to just replace or emulate the existing tools in the industry, but will bring new ideas and technologies to the field.
Peach is a cross-platform fuzzing framework. Its main goals include short development time, code reuse, ease of use, and flexibility. It can fuzz just about anything, including COM/ActiveX, SQL, shared libraries and DLLs, network applications, and the Web.
pvefindaddr is a PyCommand (plugin) for Immunity Debugger. Immunity Debugger is a powerful new way to write exploits, analyze malware, and reverse engineer binary files. It builds on a solid user interface with function graphing, the industryâ€™s first heap analysis tool built specifically for heap creation, and a large and well supported Python API for easy extensibility.
Scapy is a powerful interactive packet manipulation tool, packet generator, network scanner, network discovery tool, and packet sniffer. It provides classes to interactively create packets or sets of packets, manipulate them, send them over the wire, sniff other packets from the wire, match answers and replies, and more. Interaction is provided by the Python interpreter, so Python programming structures can be used (such as variables, loops, and functions).
