I’m now providing an updated Linux Penetration Testing Laptop Setup document to help install popular and useful vulnerability assessment tools for the Linux operating system. You can go and obtain Backtrack but I feel that you will have more understanding of the tools and Linux in general if you install the tools yourself. You will also have the most current version available. See Configuration Tutorials for the latest document.

I created Project RF to have a reporting framework that provides  consistent reports for various vulnerability scanning tools.  The  project started with support for Nessus back when I would parse nbe files.   I’ve  since included reporting for eEye Retina, Nmap, HP WebInpect,  AppScan AppDetective,  Kismet, and GFI Languard.  This project is still in its alpha stages as  I’m not a top notch web program developer.  Scan results are exported to  XML which is then uploaded, parsed, and imported into a backend MySQL  database.  I have found this framework very useful in generating reports  for my workpapers.  I still continue to work on this project even though I’m no longer an auditor.  Recently I stripped it down to just Nessus and I rewrote the Nessus portion to support the .nesses v2 xml output.  Installation and setup instructions can be found here.

This framework supports many options for report generation and executive reporting.

Update:  The latest version is now v4 on Ubuntu 11.4 Natty Narhwal.

I’ve created an updated configuration tutorial for setting up your Linux laptop to conduct system and network audits.  This version details how to get everything up and running on the latest Ubuntu currently at version 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).  See the Configuration Tutorials to download the latest pdf document (currently at version 3).

I have created an updated configuration document for my Motion Computing m1300 wireless tablet. This document details getting Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron up and running on the tablet. Included in the documentation are the steps to get Kismet, Aircrack-ng, and Karmasploit up and running. Those steps will be helpful no matter what hardware you install Ubuntu on.

I have also created an updated configuration document for the setup of my Linux laptop that I use for penetration testing.
