Special Information

Pentoo is a Live CD and Live USB designed for penetration testing and security assessment.

Based on Gentoo Linux, Pentoo is provided both as 32 and 64 bit livecd.

It features packet injection patched wifi drivers, GPGPU cracking software, and lots of tools for penetration testing and security assessment.

The Pentoo kernel includes grsecurity and PAX hardening and extra patches - with binaries compiled from a hardened toolchain with the latest nightly versions of some tools available.

Linux Installation Instructions

Download pentoo2009-ARCH-XXX.tar.gz to /

Mount ISO file to temporary location (/mnt/cdrom/)
