Security Tools


2015 – This page is so damn old. Back in 2008 I thought I can post some tools that an IS Auditor should know about and could learn to use on an audit. If you are an IS auditor, a penetration tester, or anybody who happened to stumble I apologize.

These are all tools I’ve used to conduct an audit of an agency or university.  I have working knowledge of all of these tools and would be able to offer advice or assistance in their use.  I would also suggest getting familiar with all of the tools listed in the Security List Top 100 Tools (

  1. […] you need when you connect to the auditee’s network. I’ve made changes to the Security Tools page to highlight which tools are stand-alone and do not require installation.  Also for reference […]
