Security script for pentest

Hi Aruba community,

Do you have a script for penetration test? I need to test the Aruba WIPS for man in the middle, ap spoofing, ap impersonation, DoS... in a University context. Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.

Re: Security script for pentest

Use any linux live cd that contain tools as u need.

i'm using backtrack / airemon/dump/play + reaver.


I advise on:

backtrack (Kali)







(not in the bellow list - but it small and got all i need :) )



here is a short list from the WWW:

  1. Arudius : A Linux live CD. The CD consists of a Zenwalk Linux base on top of which a large collection of network security testing software has been installed.
  2. BackTrack: Ah the favorite one for most of the pen testers!  Do I need to mention more?
  3. **bleep** Vulnerable Linux (DVL): A Linux-based tool for both novice and professional security personnel. It was initiated for training tasks and learning IT security knowledge domains such as web vulnerability, network security, or binary vulnerability such as exploitation or shellcodes.
  4. DEFT (Digital Evidence & Forensic Toolkit): A Xubuntu Linux-based Computer Forensics live CD. It is a very easy to use system that includes an excellent hardware detection and the best free and open source applications dedicated to incident response and computer forensics.

  7. grml:  grml is a bootable CD (Live-CD) originally based on Knoppix and nowadays based on Debian. grml includes a collection of GNU/Linux software especially for system administrator and users of texttools. grml provides automatic hardware detection.
  8. Helix:  A customized distribution of the Knoppix Live Linux CD. Helix is more than just a bootable live CD. You can still boot into a customized Linux environment that includes customized linux kernels, excellent hardware detection and many applications dedicated to Incident Response and Forensics.
  9. Knoppix-NSM:  This is to learn about Network Security Monitoring or to deploy a NSM capability in your network based on KNOPPIX Technology.
