Katana v2 (y0jimb0) – Portable Multi-Boot Security Suite

Cybertroopers storming your ship?

Katana is a portable multi-boot security suite which brings together many of today’s best security distributions and portable applications to run off a single Flash Drive. It includes distributions which focus on Pen-Testing, Auditing, Forensics, System Recovery, Network Analysis, and Malware Removal. Katana also comes with over 100 portable Windows applications; such as Wireshark, Metasploit, NMAP, Cain & Able, and many more.

New in V2

This version has a bunch of new stuff all around. One major addition to the project is Forge. This tool facilitates a simple point-and-click installation for adding even more distributions to Katana Bootable. This new version also adds the Computer Aided Investigative Environment (CAINE) for a live forensics environment and Kon-Boot for bypassing password. Much effort was placed on the installation of additional applications to the Katana Tool Kit. These new applications include Metasploit, NMAP, Cain & Able, John the Ripper, Cygwin, and more.

      Oh yah, typo. I’ve always referred to it as DBAN – probably why I didn’t notice.

      I’ve corrected it, thanks!
