Security tools

For security auditing, forensics, system rescue, and teaching security testing methodologies a tool set to work with is needed. Nowadays there are quite a few Linux distributions out there which provides such a set of tools. Some are out-dated, no longer maintained, or only usable for a specific purpose. Alpine Security and Rescue and Fedora Security Lab are both general purpose, up-to-date, and maintained.

Fedora Security Lab

More details are available at the Fedora Security Lab page.

Alpine Security

Please visit the Alpine Security page in the Alpine Linux wiki for more information.

If you have a request for a specific package which should be included, please contact Fabian. As one of the developer and maintainer of the Fedora Security Lab and the Alpine Linux Security compilation, he is able to add packages.
