Kali Linux Lab at Black Hat USA 2016

Thursday, August 4 | 9:00 – 16:00 | Mandalay Bay A


Join the Kali Linux team for this special opportunity to strengthen and test your Kali skills in a hands-on environment. Three areas will run all day Thursday where attendees can master Kali recipes, build their toolset, and test their skills. Seating will be based on a first come, first-served, drop-in basis and is open to all pass types.

What to Bring


Generating Custom Kali Linux ISOs
Learn how to master Kali Linux Recipes and easily build custom Kali images such as the "ISO of Doom" or "Instant Evil Kali Access Point." One of the most powerful features of Kali Linux is the ability to create your own unique version of the distribution containing customized toolsets, desktop managers, and services in a quick and easy manner. This area will show you how to pre-seed and customize virtually every aspect of Kali using the live-build utility making efficient use of the various meta-packages. Immerse yourself in advanced customizations of Kali Linux, and bend it to your will.

Kali USB Setups with Persistent Stores and LUKS Nuke Support
Use Kali Linux on the road? Want to make the ultimate portable boot device? With today’s USB 3.0 bus speeds and Kali Linux Live USB boot support, having a secure, customized Kali installation that fits on your keychain is very possible. Learn how to make a sleek Kali Bootable USB stick, which contains several persistent storage profiles, both regular and encrypted. Protect your encrypted data using the Kali LUKS Nuke feature - destroy and restore your data with confidence. Carry Kali and any stored information safely, wherever you may need to take it.

Hack with Kali in Our Playground
Test your newly created toolset in a simulated network environment. Enumerate, scan attack and compromise our vulnerable corporate network - experience the tools firsthand. We'll have a variety of vulnerable VMs sure to entertain both newcomers and experienced pentesters alike. For the best performers in this area we will have a couple of NetHunter Phones as prizes. Each session will be limited to half an hour.

The World of ARM Devices
See the weird and wonderful array of ARM hardware supported by Kali, get the low-down on Raspberry Pi 1, 2 and 3, and chat with our main ARM developer - Steev. See what it takes to build an awesome ARM pentesting RIG, such as the all-in-one RaspberryPi FruityWifi LCD device.
