What is it Kali Linux ?

Kali linux is a gnu/linux distribution released on March 13, 2013, based on debian. The distribution has taken over from backtrack. The objective of kali linux is to provide a distribution that brings together all the tools needed for security testing of an information system, including penetration testing.

Since the 2016 version, Kali Linux is available pre-installed with a large number of desktop environments5. These include: gnome, kde, lxde, mate, enlightenment and xfce, which you can choose when you download. Kali linux is a gnu/linux distribution based on Debian released in 2013.

It follows Backtrack, which was based on Ubuntu. The objective of this suite of programs is to group together the tools needed for security testing of a computer system: penetration testing, sniffing, reverse engineering, password cracking, vulnerability research, etc.

The distribution is very easy to use, even for beginners. Its large collection of applications has helped many Internet users to better secure their systems. The development was led by mati aharoni and devon kearns during the rewrite of backtrack, their previous ubuntu-based Linux distribution dedicated to infosec. The third lead developer then joined them as a debian specialist. Kali Linux is based on Debian testing. Most of the packages used come from the debian repositories.

Kali Linux is developed in a secure development environment, where only a few trusted people are allowed to contribute by changing packages, and each package is signed by its developer.
