Auditor Live-CD

As noted in a recent blog entry, I've been playing around with some Linux-based live-cds (CDs you can boot from without having to install Linux on your machine). Auditor is one live cd I downloaded and ran up on my Dell Inspiron 8600. I used a Toshiba PCMCIA (orinoco gold) card and within a few minutes, I had kismet up and running and sniffing traffic and could also use many of the other tools. Sadly, I can't seem to get Auditor to run on my old Dell Lattitude.

Auditor is based on Knoppix, and contains over 300 security tools, including kismet, air crack and many others. The authors have also set up some forums for support and guidance on the tool set. All in all, a pretty cool set of tools that work out of the box!
