NetSecL (previously known as ISlack) is a security-focused Linux distribution.
It includes Grsecurity by default. Most of the numerous security-related software is suited for penetration testing of your network.
There are also security tools for testing your local security and IDSs for monitoring.
The configuration of NetSecL is hardened by default: (listening for connection) services are turned off, and incoming ports are closed.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· It was time for a change and we at NetSecL realized that, the new version of NetSecL 3.0 is a live DVD + installation based on OpenSuse. Once installed you can fully enjoy the features of GrSecurity hardened kernel and penetration tools OR if you like to do some penetration testing you can directly run all tools from the live DVD. NetSecL firewall is included as always and most of the penetration tools are ported to the new platform. Also we'd like to mention that we've got many other programs up and running with GrSecurity enabled, which is great success especially when it comes to programs like wine, OpenOffice, Vuze, Qemu and many gnome applications. The password for both admin and root user on the DVD is linux.
