Security in the network with Kali Linux

Watchful Dragon

Conclusions

Kali Linux can be used universally both as a Live system from different boot media and as a static installation. The limitations associated with Live operation, however, make it advisable to install the operating system on dedicated mass storage. This setup rules out problems that typically occur from unsupported hardware in Live use on different computer systems. Additionally, Kali Linux can be kept constantly up to date with a static installation.

The system's software configuration appears to be well thought out in all modes and covers almost all conceivable operational scenarios. Kali Linux should therefore be a part of every serious administrator's basic technical configuration. In a future article, I will show you how to use the provided toolbox to detect vulnerabilities on your network quickly and reliably.
