Am currently testing PLAK. So far greatly impressed.  It is a little
hard at first but the tools are phenominal.  FWIW.

Has anyone had exposure to Operator (built from Knoppix) or PHLAX?  I
haven't been able to download and try them but it was brought up in one
of my classes that I am taking.



What purposes do you pentest with these?  

External perimeter security, DMZ or internal?  

How would you block non-authorized users from utilizing these? (with the
exception of BIOS password protection and disabling the floppy, usb and
cdrom boot capabilities)
