Re: VMWare and which linux distro?

Hi List,

I think a good portion of you guys use a VMWare-Linux setup when doing
pen-test (for many reasons). The question i would like to ask is, which
linux distribution works best for this specific purpose ? Obviously you
dont need a distribution with many fency Xwin features and preferably
good networking tools built-in.

I am uncertain about which would work best in this particular scenario
and i really cant think of anyone better then you guys to give me
insight.

Thanks,

-Maxime


You should check out OpenWall made by the solar designer. I run it over
here and it's great. It's a distro that comes secure by default, and has
many security features that people use. Check it out: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/
