Open VAS is a vulnerability scanner that originally started as a fork of the Nessus project.The actual security scanner is accompanied with a daily updated feed of Network Vulnerability Tests (NVTs), over 20,000 in total (as of January 2011) HP SWFScan is a free tool developed by HP Web Security Research Group to automatically find security vulnerabilities in applications built on the Flash platform.External antennas come in a variety of shapes, based upon the usage and with a variety of connectors.All external antennas must have RP-SMA connectors that are compatible with the Alfa.As such it is a requirement to have the ability to use the three major operating systems at one time. Since this is a hardware platform as well, this makes the selection of specific hardware extremely simple and ensures that all tools will work as designed.VMware Workstation is an absolute requirement to allow multiple instances of operating systems easily on a workstation.
The required hardware is the Alfa AWUS051NH 500m W High Gain 802.11a/b/g/n high power Wireless USB.
The operating systems listed below should be run as a guest system within VMware. The Linux platform is versatile, and the system kernel provides low-level support for leading-edge technologies and protocols.
All mainstream IP-based attack and penetration tools can be built and run under Linux with no problems.
These are not to be used in Florida, Kentucky, or Minnesota unless you are a person who holds a current amateur radio license issued by the Federal Communications Commission.
The required hardware is the Uniden BCD396T Bearcat Handheld Digital Scanner or PSR-800 GRE Digital trunking scanner.
A GPS is a necessity to properly perform an RF assessment.
