Re: Creating my own personal Linux distribution for Penetration Testing and White-Hat Hacking

If you do this, make sure you ditch Network Manager. It's the biggest
pain in the ass when it comes to wireless hacking, because it randomly
decides to put your card back into managed mode, or switch channels. A
different wireless network connection GUI that seems to work well with
aircrack-ng and kismet is wicd, and it's much more flexible than
Network Manager as well.

Greetings,

Recently I have been working on a distribution of Linux built on
Debian... to get more specific, built on Linux -> Debian -> Ubuntu
8.10 -> Super Ubuntu. Though I will probably build it directly from
Ubuntu (or Debian) sometime in the future.

My distribution has been specialised to suite the requirements of your
everyday (and not so everyday!) pen-tester and white/grey hat hackers.

My sobriquet for this distribution is: HackBuntu.

Though sometime in the (near) future, I will probably rename it to:
Subuntu. (SecurityUbuntu)

I have posted this on this mailing list for some advice.

Can someone please recommend me some tools to put on it?

Here is what I have already put into the distribution (excluding
command line ones);

Metasploit
Ettercap
Cain & Abel (via WINE)
NetStumbler (via WINE)
Maltego CE
Nessus
PuTTy
Wireshark
NMap
ZeNMap
OPHCrack

Please recommend me some more tools to 'put into' this distribution.

Thanks in advance,

Chip D. Panarchy
