Kali Linux/Bactrack on the Raspberry Pi

Mon May 27, 2013 4:27 pm

This post was based on a article on my blog. Your welcome to read my blog at http://www.BeginnersCorner.Wordpress.com

*In this tutorial to I`ll show you how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a Pen Test Device. It is not for hacking, and I do not condone its use for that, I insist that you only use it to test out your networks security.*

So recently, a new flavor of Linux had been introduced as Kali Linux and is being advertised on Backtrack website. What is this fuss all about? What is Kali Linux and why are Backtrack guys advertising it. Kal Linux is the Next-Generation Backtrack Linux. Kali is a complete re-build of BackTrack Linux, adhering completely to Debian development standards.

If all you want to do is to install Kali on your Raspberry Pi, follow these instructions:

1. Get a nice fast 8 GB (or more) SD card. Class 10 cards are highly recommended.

2. Download the Kali Linux Raspberry Pi image from Kali Linuxes download area.

3. If your on Linux or Mac use the dd utility to file the image to your SD card. If youur on windows, use the Win32DiskImager.

This process can take a while depending on your USB storage device speed and image size. Once the dd operation is complete, boot up your Rasberry Pi with the SD card plugged in.

You will be able to log in to Kali. Username: root, password: toor
To start the GUI type in

Code: Select all

startx
That’s it, you’re done! Feel free to post a comment, if something didn't work out as planned

Hi,

I have downloaded ARM image (kali linux 1.0.9 Raspberry Pi image) for my Raspberry Pi model B from the following link:
https://www.offensive-security.com/kali ... -download/
I was able to write the image to my 8GB SD card using win32diskImager. But when i plug the SD card into the PI, my Raspberry Pi does not boot. Is there any way to resolve this?

Thanks,
Tarakesh

You have to extract the file using winrar. after you do that, then burn the .img file to the sd card :]

Hello everyone,
working on a Macbook Pro Os X… So I just can't find anywhere a way ( with Os X )
to extract the Raspberry Pi image from Offensive Security website :
https://www.offensive-security.com/kali ... -download/

Then I'll try this Tutorial : http://www.r00tsec.com/2013/04/howto-in ... ry-pi.html.

( and what on earth is the difference between the Raspberry Pi image and the Raspberry Pi TFT image ?? :/ ) ( knowing that I do not own the LAST gen… But the one before… If it makes a difference )

If someone could help me with a procedure…
I'd be damn thankful, cause I'm stuck.
Cheers.

Kali won't work on the new raspberry pi. You need to make some changes and it has been discussed here on the forums. You need to download the pi image, not vmware and then do the changes suggested on the forum.
There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't.

@ kusti8, thx for stopping by.

Ha, ok… But the tutorial I just posted says it works..
And in the forum I only find Windows recipes… Not Os X.

You may use Raspberry Pi installation instructions for Mac OS from this site:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio ... ges/mac.md
Regarding Kali TFT image version - it is for Raspberry Pi with added special RPI small TFT display.

In case you want to install the Kali Linux RPI image on new RPI2 - you have 2 options:
1. You may use the same Kali RPI armel version 1.0.9 image from Offensive Security website - you need just to replace the boot folder and to add the missing in /lib/modules new RPI2 library from Raspbian RPI2 official image. Here are my instructions: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 73#p693573
2. You may use the Kali Linux armhf 1.1.0 version image from the next post (rpi-3.1.8.torrent image). However because the Kali build script used has a small mistake, you need to make the same replacements like in my instructions in 1. The advantage of this armhf image is that armhf version is a little faster.
You need to use 8 GB+ microSD card - 8 GB is enough for Kali initial installation on RPI/RPI2 however in case you update Kali Linux to full version (using the command apt-get install kali-linux-full) then you need 16GB microSD card. https://www.kali.org/news/kali-linux-metapackages/

A computer's power can't be just measured Gigahertz. It is the same thing with us humans.
