Hacking-Lab LiveCD 8.05
The operating system is distributed as a dual-arch Live DVD
As its name suggests, Hacking-Lab LiveCD is a Linux OS that is distributed as a Live CD/DVD ISO image and geared towards users of the Hacking-Lab IT portal, allowing them to access the lab remotely. The ISO image has 2.5GB in size and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit hardware platforms, but runs only with 32-bit applications.
The boot menu includes various options
From the boot menu, the user will be able to start the live system with default boot options and drivers or in failsafe mode, start the installer directly, as well as to view detailed information about the hardware components of his or her computer.
Modern graphical desktop environment with a two-panel layout
As mentioned, the default and only graphical desktop environment of Hacking-Lab LiveCD is GNOME, which uses a two-panel layout and a pitch black theme. Both panels are important for a productive environment, but they are highly customizable.
Includes a great collection of open source (libre) applications
The distro includes a great collection of open source (libre) applications, among which we can mention the Iceweasel and Chromium web browsers, LibreOffice office suite, Audacity audio editor, Ophcrack Microsoft Windows password cracker, ClamTK antivirus, Zenmap and Wireshark network scanners, as well as Synaptic Package Manager for installing additional apps or update/remove existing ones.
All in all, Hacking-Lab LiveCD is a decent, stable and reliable distribution of Linux whose main target are Hacking-Lab users who want to remotely connect to the laboratory from a secure and safe place.
