You can get the tools you listed for OS X at
http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/ or by using Fink
http://fink.sourceforge.net/. These projects compile FreeBSD ports of
the linux tools that you mention with an easy "apt-get" like
interface.

As for Parallels/XP using CORE Impact testing, I would suggest you try
it using VMware or such -- it would probably be somewhat similar. I
don't see how it would be that different, although I know of some
problems using peripherals in XP under Parallels.

Hope this helps.

        Thanks for the input folks... I am trying to cost justify the $3K for my new
        MBP right now (anyone have any good security/pentest focused reasons to go
        this direction)... Has anyone had any problems compiling/running any of the
        unix flavor tools in OSX (john, nessus, hydra, rainbow crack)?  Or has
        anyone had any problems with the windows stack being muddled thru paralles
        and into OSX and as such stopping attack tools from working?

        I know, I know... If you have a native *nix OS why would you be messing with
        Windows... My only response is CORE...

        Cheers

        Kelly,

          I am using a D-Link DWL-122 with my MBP and it works just fine.  OS
        X sees it as a Prism 2 chipset and KisMAC uses it natively.  I have
        also used it successfully on other systems with both Auditor and
        BackTrack.

        Other than having to use Rosetta every once in a while to get a DMG
        to work correctly, I do not see any problems with the MBP.  I have
        Windows XP installed under Paralles but have not spent any time with it.
