The Katana: Portable Multi-Boot Security Suite is designed to fulfill many of your computer security needs. The idea behind this tool is to bring together many of the best security distributions and applications to run from one USB Flash Drive.

Katana includes distributions which focus on Penetration Testing, Auditing, Password Cracking, Forensics and Honey Pots. Katana comes with over 100 portable Windows applications, such as Wireshark, HiJackThis, Unstoppable Copier, Firefox, and OllyDBG. It also includes the following distributions:

  • Backtrack 4 pre
  • the Ultimate Boot CD
  • Ophcrack Live
  • Damn Small Linux
  • the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows
  • Got Root? Slax
  • Organizational Systems Wireless Auditor (OSWA) Assistant
  • Damn Vulnerable Linux

Katana is also highly customizable. You can modify Katana by adding or removing distributions and portable apps with ease. You can add functionality to distributions like the Ultimate Boot CD, Got Root? Slax and UBCD4Win. You can also load your personal scripts and documents to keep them conveniently with
you on your flash drive to use in concert with the provided tools.

    What, no torrents? For a 5.4GB file, that seems like a no brainer. :(

    I e-mailed the author about seeding some torrents, it does make sense. Will update if it happens.

    I have also added instructions on installing additional Distros like Backtrack 3, Puppy Linux, Trinity Rescue Kit and Clonezilla to the Hack From a Cave Forum @ forum.hackfromacave.com.

    Why is the torrent 5.36g and the download 1.4g?

  8. Darknet November 29, 2009 at 11:38 am #

    The HTTP download is also 5.4GB, I think the original link I used was incomplete – have updated with a new link.

    I don’t suppose anyone sells a dvd version of this. 3 unsucessful downloads with archive errors when expanding. Just a thought :-)
