Q 2. Features OF Kali Linux?


                   Here, I Am Sharing Some Features Of Kali Linux. (I collected these features from Kali Linux Official Site.

So, You Can Trust On These Features.)

In Kali Linux Official Sites, Developer Says

  • More than 600 penetration testing tools included: After reviewing every tool that was included in BackTrack, we eliminated a great number of tools that either simply did not work or which duplicated other tools that provided the same or similar functionality. Details on what’s included are on the Kali Tools site.

  • Free (as in beer) and always will be: Kali Linux, like BackTrack, is completely free of charge and always will be. You will never, ever have to pay for Kali Linux.

  • Open source Git tree: We are committed to the open source development model and our development tree is available for all to see. All of the source code which goes into Kali Linux is available for anyone who wants to tweak or rebuild packages to suit their specific needs.

  • Wide-ranging wireless device support: A regular sticking point with Linux distributions has been supported for wireless interfaces. We have built Kali Linux to support as many wireless devices as we possibly can, allowing it to run properly on a wide variety of hardware and making it compatible with numerous USB and other wireless devices.
  • Developed in a secure environment: The Kali Linux team is made up of a small group of individuals who are the only ones trusted to commit packages and interact with the repositories, all of which is done using multiple secure protocols.
  • Multi-language support: Although penetration tools tend to be written in English, we have ensured that Kali includes true multilingual support, allowing more users to operate in their native language and locate the tools they need for the job.
  • Completely customizable: We thoroughly understand that not everyone will agree with our design decisions, so we have made it as easy as possible for our more adventurous users to customize Kali Linux to their liking, all the way down to the kernel.


And Many More.


Let's Talk About Our Next Topic.

Q 3. Who Should Use Kali Linux? 


Kali Linux Is Specially Designed For Penetration Tester, 

Computer Forensic Experts And 

For Cyber Security Re searcher. 

Kali Linux Is a perfect choice for those who wants to learn ethical hacking, 


cyber security related fields.

If You Are New With Linux Distribution And Only Wants To Learn Linux, 

Gaming or any other other normal thing than 

kali linux is not a good choice for you. because, 

kali linux is created for professionals. 

even, many time kali linux creates many problems with professionals also. 

Although, Kali is an open source project, but it’s not a wide-open source project, 

for reasons of security. The development team is small and trusted, 

packages in the repositories are signed both by the individual committer 

and the team, and — importantly — the set of upstream repositories from which 

updates and new packages are drawn is very small. Adding repositories to your software 

sources which have not been tested by the Kali Linux development team is a good way to 

cause problems on your system.

At The End, 

                   If you are looking for a Linux distribution to learn the basics of Linux 

and need a good starting point, than 

Kali Linux is not the ideal distribution for you. 

You may want to begin with UbuntuMint, or Debian
