Pentoo Mini LiveCD v2006.0

Filed under
Linux

Pentoo, a Network Security Consortium distribution based off of Gentoo, has released their Mini-Pentoo v2006.0 build. This distribution does include such packages as GAIM and Firefox, however, its key purpose is to provide elite applications and tools to perform penetration testing. Not only is this a great LiveCD security distribution, but it comes without many of the hassles beginning Linux users have faced when attempting to run Gentoo, and of course Emerge is included. Pentoo utilizes the Linux 2.6.14 kernel and Enlightenment environment. Some of the tools include changing a Windows NT password from a hard drive, changing or resetting CMOS passwords, John The Ripper, and Ethereal Network Sniffer.
