It has a curses installer, some preinstalled applications such as i3, ranger, polybar, and firefox. It has a pentesting focus, but only has about 30 tools preinstalled, as not to provide hundreds of similar tools, that are ultimately useless.

Firefox has some about:config tweaks built in, and some privacy addons preinstalled. There is also offline Documentation, written in latex, containing the pentesting tools installed, and the i3 keybinds.

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.
