I have tried Back|Track 4 and I am wondering what would be some cool tools to have on Ubuntu for penetration testing and doing things with wireless that are in the Ubuntu repository. I would prefer to run Ubuntu instead of BT's KDE.

Thanx,
Ronnie

I don't know how much of the stuff in BT4 are in the repos, but I doubt it's much.

You will probably have to go to each site and either install from source or see if there is a deb to install.

well for the most basic penetration of wirless you can get both aircrack-ng and macchanger from the repository.... not sure what else is there but that should at least get you started :D The nice thing is that most of the penetration tools that are useful are run from terminal so you wont have any conflicts with the KDE aspect

Got aircrack and macchanger installed now. Between those wireshark and nmap, I think I have enough toys to play with to get me through my NIDS classes.

Thanks,
Ronnie

There are quite a few of the pen testing tools in the repositories. A few you can download from the sites themselves. A few seem to be windows tools that are running in wine and a few are free versions of paid software. Also there seem to be some that are skripts to use programs in a certian way. While BT4 is a great distro for what it is designed for it is not one I would want to run as a desktop. There are loads of fine tools you can add to your desktop Ubuntu to get the practice to use Back Track when it is needed.

You can add the BT repos to Ubuntu and download the tools, this is however not supported by the BT team.

From http://www.backtrack-linux.org/faq/:

We recommend against this action because Backtrack tools are built with many custom features and libraries.

It would be easier to add the Ubuntu repos to a Backtrack install and install the ubuntu-desktop package.

I have been playing with Zenmap which is a GUI front end for NMAP and I must say that I like it. I set it running on one of my other machines to scan my production system with and without UFW and I watched it all on Wireshark. Without the wireshark, I was seeing the ICMP replies to the UDP packets and thought it was wild, then when I turned on UFW and ran it again, all you could see were the incoming packets with no response. I am really impressed. Tomorrow I plan to run the same tests against Windows 7 and see how that turns out. I will post the outcome here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8833517#post8833517).
