BackBox Linux: A Flexible Penetration Testing Distribution

If you carry around BackTrack on a USB drive, you might as well take the BackBox for a spin.Yes, it does not have those many tools that the former LiveCD does, but given the time and effort, it will probably reach there.

The BackBox is based on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, running a Linux kernel v2.6.32 with Xfce 4.6.1. It provides a complete desktop experience, coupled with a simplified usage of the system resources making it suitable in situations where speed is a crucial factor. BackBox is designed to be an useful and simple tool for Penetration Testing. It also supports themes such as – Thunar, GDM and the Plymouth theme.

It contains the following applications and more:

This distro supports both – 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems!
