STD focuses on information security and network management tools.
There are a large set of security tools pre-installed and divided into the categories:
– encryption utilities
– penetration tools
– vulnerability assessment
– forensic tools
– intrusion detection
– packet sniffers and assemblers
– network utilities

– password auditing (crackers)
Knoppix-STD 0.1 has been released in 2004.
