Gloom – Linux Penetration Testing Framework

Security is a state in which we ensure a proper gap between the threats and assets of an organization. We try to either move assets far away from threats or we try to somehow apply good security controls in between the two. When we talk about Security, we have to focus on both Application and Operating System. However OS itself is quite stable and less probe to attacks, i.e. you will get with some hard time getting a serious attack vector.

Kali Linux is a Linux penetration testing and security auditing Linux distribution. After its release in March 2013, Kali Linux has quickly become the new favourite among Pen Testers worldwide as their choice for the Pen testing OS. Replacing its predecessor Backtrack, Kali incorporated several new features and looks quite promising.
