Turn your Android mobile into a penetration test tool

self destruction of your data with kali linux

Good news for Kali Linux fans, the team in charge of Kali Linux has launched a new project, known as nethunter, which works on a android device and more particularly designed for physical attacks (via the USB port).

For those who don't know Kali Linux is an open source operating system based on Debian which brings together all the tools necessary for the security tests of an information system.

If you have a Nexus phone, you can turn it into penetration test tool by installing Kali Linux NetHunter on it and carrying out attacks using, among other things, the USB port of the target machine.

NetHunter's goal is to provide an Android penetration testing platform that brings together all the tools needed for all kinds of pentests. Designed to compromise systems via USB when installed and running on an Android phone.

We find in NetHunter, all the set of tools of Kali Linux, including the functionalities of self-destruction or remote control (VNC ... etc.).

Nethunter is currently available for Nexus devices only (Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10). For more information, I invite you to consult the official website of Kali Linux Nethunter project.
