Portable multi-boot security suite Katana 2.0 released
Posted on 08 November 2010.
Katana is a portable multi-boot security suite which brings together all of the best security distributions to run from one USB drive.


Katana includes distributions which focus on penetration testing, auditing, password cracking, forensics and honeypots.

One major addition to the project is Forge. This tool offers a simple point-and-click interface for users who wish to customize Katana by installing more Live Operating Systems, like Samurai, Pentoo, Knoppix, and BitDefender. Users can select their distro of choice or run the installation through the command line.

This new version also adds the Computer Aided Investigative Environment (CAINE) for a live forensics environment and Kon-Boot for authentication bypassing. A lot of effort was put into the addition of some new applications to the Katana Tool Kit, such as Metasploit, Nmap, Cain & Abel, John the Ripper, Cygwin and more.
