Live Hacking – a Linux distribution packed with tools and utilities for ethical hacking, penetration testing and countermeasure verification.

Based on Ubuntu this ‘Live DVD” runs directly from the DVD and doesn’t require installation on your hard-drive. Once booted you can use the included tools to test, check, ethically hack and perform penetration tests on your own network to make sure that it is secure from outside intruders.

The Live Hacking DVD is designed for ethical computer hacking, meaning that it contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network but using the tools and techniques that more malicious hackers would use.

The Live Hacking Mini CD is a small Linux distribution designed for ethical computer hacking. Based on its bigger brother (the Live Hacking DVD) this mini distribution contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network by using the tools and techniques employed by more malicious hackers. To reduce this Linux distribution to a smaller size, the GNOME user interface has been removed, meaning that this is a command-line only distribution.

Desktop environment: text
Architecture: x86, x86_64
Based on: Debian
Wikipedia: Inquisitor_(hardware_testing_software)
Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 3.1beta2 | October 20, 2009

Inquisitor – an open-source hardware testing and certification system, suitable for both enterprise and home use, customizable, modular and available in both serverless Live CD/DVD format and server-controlled network boot production system.

This name originates from 2004, when ALT Linux was building its new installer/configuration system. All its components’ names finished with *tor (i.e. separator, propagator, predator, alterator, etc). Mikhail Yakshin came forward with a curious idea of calling new hardware testing system an “Inquisitor”—it fitted *tor schema perfectly and besides, it was a pun on system’s functionality with stress tests like cpuburn.

It boasts separate Live CD that one can download and use, just as one might download any other Live CD Linux distribution, and Inquisitor can be built into bootable root that would look just like real Linux system (but customized for specific tasks).
It is a modular system, it’s made up from a series of interchangeable modules; one can easily add new modules to add new tests, detections, production steps, etc.

It can analyse and test your hardware from top to the bottom and assure that it won’t fail easily under the production stress.
