BackTrack : Intro to the beast.

Hey guys how are you... Xeo Hacker suggested that it wud be better to discuss backtrack from very beginning. Although there are previously some posts on backtrack but m marking it as first post . here we go :

What is BackTrack

Although most of you know this still in case you dont , m writing about wat this is actually .
This is basically a Ubuntu/Linux based Operating System in Gnome as well as KDE flavours. BackTrack is named after an algorithm "backtracking" . This is made ,keeping digital forensics and penetration testing in mind.
Backtrack is originated from two earlier distribution who focused on penetration testing:
  • WHAX
  • Auditor Security Collection

whats so special about this  ???

You must have heard backtrack here n there . Why its so special in the field of hacking and why hackers are using it frequently ???
Is it necessary to use BT for hacking ???  These are some questions we'll be discussing here.

Why its so special !!!
It is special because of its pre-installed CLI and GUI tools for hacking ,mostly for penetration testing and digital forensics. It has a lot of inbuilt tools which helps u in a complete Security assesment ....

Is it necessary yo use BT in hacking ???
BT is not necessary but its highly recommended for hacking . If you wish to get benefits of backtrack without using BT then u have to install more than 200 tools . And if u r interested in hacking , why to suffer all these troubles , simply install backtrack.

Tools Included

As i said there are more than 200 inbuilt tools in bactrack , and i cant list all of them , but in backtrack tools are arranged in a very good manners .

BackTrack arranges tools into 12 categories:
  • Information Gathering
  • Vulnerability Assesment
  • Exploitation
  • Privilege Escalation 
  • Maintaining Access
  • Reverse Engineering
  • RFID tools
  • Stress Testing Tools
  • Forensics
  • Reporting tools
  • Services
  • Miscellaneous
Thats it.

Ok guys thats all for this post , will post very soon again.
Hope u enjoyed this post , thank you for reading .
Stay Tuned !
