This is the original content of the post here – hence why there are comments. This will be re-populated with the original once we’ve updated the other post!
Hope that makes sense!
Can we use these tools for testing Mobile apps based on Android and IOS please?
Your response is much appreciated.
Hi Srikanth – thanks for your comment. Take a look at Santoku – which is a mobile forensics pentesting distro – I think you will find useful information there. Also! Take a look at Drozer which also addresses your question.
What about CORE IMPACT Pro Software? Isn’t it in top 10 of penetration testing tools?
Backtrack should have made it to the list, Cain & Abel definetely shouldn’t
metasploit is inbuilt in backtrack
It most certainly is inbuilt in BackTrack and Kali Linux of course.
I am new to learn pentesting.can you help on the common tool used for pentesting.
Also iIs there any site which explains the basics on pentesting for mob?
Awaiting for your reply…
Thanks in advance 🙂
Sure – take a look at the Smartphone Penetration Testing Framework by Georgia Weidman. Here’s the link. Georgia is a highly talented security professional – she specializes in mobile pentesting security.
Otherwise take a look at mobile security pentesting tools like ‘CreepyDOL’ or Drozer. We have had Hacker Hotshots on each of these mobile tools.
Weird and surprising how Backtrack & Kali din’t make it to the top 10 !?
Well – we didn’t really add BackTrack and Kali Linux because they are Linux Distro’s that are really pentesting tools directories.
We do have more information on Kali Linux here and other Hacking Distro’s here.
Also – I should add that we also offer a Linux Pentesting Distro Course which is only $50 for a three hour live interactive course.
You missed OpenVAS!
Hello, I have designed a hash algorithm. But I do not know how can I test it? Are there any tools for attacks Testing? Please advise me. regards
Not too sure to be honest, but try smhasher.
Pls kindly send me a link to nmap and Cain and Abel
As soon as we publish this I’ll add the link here – thanks
I’ve used Core Impact Pro and it’s very good.
Is there a tool that has all the packages included?
Only tool I can think of is – well, Kali Linux!
I was installed metasploit package in my ubuntu, but it’s so high resource memory..
I want to be in man in the middle. Which one is better
Very nice and interesting post about Best Security Testing Tools.
