Netkit Live – a live Linux distribution based on Knoppix, and features Netkit exploits open source software (mostly licensed under GPL) and is heavily based on the User Mode Linux (UML) variant of the Linux kernel.

Netkit is an environment for setting up and performing networking experiments at low cost and with little effort. It allows to “create” several virtual network devices (full-fledged routers, switches, computers, etc.) that can be easily interconnected in order to form a network on a single PC. Networking equipments are virtual but feature many of the characteristics of the real ones, including the configuration interface.

Netkit consists of three components: a core including the user interface and the documentation, a kernel for the virtual machines, and a filesystem containing the networking tools and services. These components are distributed separately to limit the impact of updates, however all the components are required for Netkit to work properly.

Netkit is the result of the joint work of several people from the Computer Networks Laboratory of the Roma Tre University and from the Linux User Group LUG Roma 3.

Local Area Security (L.A.S.) – live-CD Linux distribution for information security professionals. It contains over 250 security tools including all the usual suspects (Nmap, Nessus, etc.) as well as many other great tools less well known. The ISO images are meant to be burned on 185MB and 210MB miniCDs which they update around twice a month. The distribution was available in 2 different versions of L.A.S. to fit two specific needs – MAIN and SECSERV.

The project was started in 2002 to research information security related topics. During that time there was no real live-CD toolkit focused on information security. So Jascha, the project founder built one from a stripped down version of Knoppix called Model-K. Both of which were built from Debian Linux. Up until version 0.4 L.A.S. Linux was command line only. After that, FluxBox was added as the desktop since it is light weight and very feature filled.

A few of the tools that wewe available in the distribution: etherape, mozillafirebird, argus-server, argus-client, arpwatch, bfbtester, cabextract, cflow, dlint, farpd, recover, gtkrecover, nasm, nast, strace, ltrace, sudo,valgrind, pnscan, isic, splint, sendip, scli, scanssh, rarpd, wellenreiter,router-audit-tool, httpush, bass, scansort, scanerrlog, idsa / idsaguardgtk, crank (for fun), ccrypt, ntfstools, pasmal, bruth, hlfl, less, smbfs, smstools, LinNeighborhood, snmp, snmpd, driftnet, Dillo, admsmp, admsnmp,arptool, di, hammerhead, flawfinder, foremost, md5deep, binutils, findutils,file, gall, libpst, libdbx, rda, ntreg, memfetch, stegdetect, mkpersistenthome, mkdosswap, pv, cscope, scanlogd, cgrep, bsed, vlad, warscan, zodiac, angst, hackbot, mieliekoek.pl, screamingcobra.pl, cmospwd, macchanger, vomit, atmelwlandriver, wlcardconfig, sshstart-knoppix.

The last version | Released: 3.3 | April 29, 2004

Knorpora – a modified version of the Knoppix 3.3 Live CD for students of corpus-based computational linguistics.

Like Knoppix, the Knorpora CD allows you to run a fully operational Debian/Linux operating system from the CD-ROM drive, without installing anything on the computer.

The Knorpora edition of Knoppix contains programs and data files that should be of interest to computational linguistics students (WordNet, the Natural Language Toolkit, taggers, etc.)

When you launch Knorpora on your computer, you can immediately start learning how to use a UNIX-like operating system while at the same time experimenting with the kind of UNIX-command-line-based NLP tools that make UNIX the ideal operating system for NLP work.

Even if you already work with UNIX, Knorpora may give you the chance to try some interesting software before you install it.

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 5.1.1 | January 4, 2007

Knoppix-OpenVZ – a live CD based on Knoppix 5.1.1 which features the OpenVZ technology.

OpenVZ is a container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates multiple secure, isolated Linux containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server; a container can be rebooted independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory, processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files. OpenVZ is free open source software, available under GNU GPL.

The Live CD contains the OpenVZ patched kernel 2.6.18-028stab027, the utility vzctl 3.0.16 and the program vzquota 3.0.9. Furthermore, minimal templates (file system archives that can be unpacked to set up virtual machines) have been added for Debian 3.1, CentOS 4, and Fedora Core 5. To make room for it, the developers renounced Knoppix on OpenOffice, GIMP and Frozen Bubble.

The booted system runs completely in the RAM of the computer. The number of virtual machines (VEs) that can be set up and started depends on the available RAM. With 1 GB of main memory, about five VEs should start.

OpenVZ is the free base of the commercial solution »Virtuozzo« from SWsoft. It virtualizes the operating system, but not the hardware. This means a kernel (Linux with OpenVZ patch) is running, and this provides a number of virtual environments. Each of these VEs feels very much like a separate computer

The OpenVZ development team has created a live CD that can be used to test the OpenVZ technology without installing it on the computer.
