Kali Linux is a Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing. Kali contains several hundred tools aimed at various information security tasks, such as Penetration Testing, Forensics and Reverse Engineering. Kali Linux is developed, funded and maintained by Offensive Security, a leading information security training company. Kali Linux was released on the 13th March, 2013 as a complete, top-to-bottom rebuild of BackTrack Linux, adhering completely to Debian development standards.
In addition to Kali Linux, Offensive Security also maintains the Exploit Database and the free online course, Metasploit Unleashed. Kali Linux is constantly evolving with new features being added to the distribution all the time. In an ongoing effort, we are attempting to document common, new, or interesting features available in Kali Linux as best as we can. This has prompted the setup of our Official Kali Linux Documentation website. The fastest way to get to know Kali Linux is to follow the documentation site and explore the new features available.
