BackTrack (or Back|Track) – an Ubuntu based Linux distribution for digital forensics and penetration testing.
BackTrack provides a large collection of security-related tools ranging from port scanners to Security Audit.
The tools are divided into 12 categories, such as:
– Information gathering
– Vulnerability assessment
– Exploitation tools
– Privilege escalation
– Maintaining access
– Reverse engineering
– RFID tools
– Stress testing
– Reporting tools
BackTrack was under development between 2006 and 2012 by the Offensive Security team.
Versions up to 3.0 were based on Slax, and then (4.0) it has been moved to Ubuntu as its base.
The last version of BackTrack is 5 R3, which is available in two flavors: GNOME 2 and KDE, both for i686 and amd64 CPU.
As of March 2013, the Offensive Security team re-based the project to Debian and re-named it to Kali Linux.
