Best Operating Systems For Hacking – Today's post is focused on top rated operating systems used mainly by hackers, Take  note that these are not basic OS like Windows but entirely different as they have great ethical hacking tools or penetration testing. And i will be starting with my most favorite which is the Kali Linux, not because it is popular but because it was developed by the same team of Backtrack(Offensive security). Although it is not included on my list and the reason is because it is not officially available on their website and the next version of Backtrack is the Kali Linux. The listed Operating systems written here are based on Linux kernel so they are all free operating systems. (Included download links for all OS) So don't panic.

  1. Kali Linuxbest operating systems hacking

Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing. It is maintained and funded by Offensive Security Ltd. Mati Aharoni and Devon Kearns of Offensive Security developed it by rewriting Backtrack. Kali Linux is the most versatile and advanced penetration testing distro. Kali updates its tools and it is available for many different platforms like VMware and ARM.

   2. BackBoxTop Operating systems for hackers

It includes some of the most used security and analysis Linux tools, aiming to a wide spread of goals, ranging from web application analysis to network analysis, from stress tests to sniffing, including also vulnerability assessment, computer forensic analysis and exploitation.
The power of this distribution is given by its Launchpad repository core constantly updated to the last stable version of the most known and used ethical hacking tools. The integration and development of new tools inside the distribution follows the commencement of open source community and particularly the Debian Free Software Guidelines criteria.

3. Parrot-sec Forensic OSTop Operating systems for hackers

Parrot Security is an operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux mixed with Frozen box OS and Kali Linux in order to provide the best penetration and security testing experience. it is an operating system for IT security and penetration testing developed by the Frozen-box Dev Team. It is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian and mixed with Kali.
Parrot uses Kali repositories in order to take latest updates for almost all the tools, but it also has its own dedicated repository where all the custom packets are kept. This is why this distro is not just a simple Kali "mod" but entire new concept which relies on Kali's tool repositories. As such, it introduces a lot of new features and different developing choices.Parrot uses MATE as a Desktop Environment. Lightweight and powerful interface is derived from famous Gnome 2, and thanks to Frozen-box highly customizable with captivating icons, ad-hoc themes and wallpapers. System look is proposed and designed by the community members and also members of Frozen-box Network, who are closely following the development of this project.

4.  Live Hacking OSTop Operating systems for hackers

As I highlighted before, Live Hacking OS is also based on linux which has big package of hacking tools useful for ethical hacking or penetration testing. It includes the graphical user interface GNOME inbuilt. There is a second variation available which has command line only, and it requires very less hardware requirements.

5.  DEFTTop Operating systems for hackers

Deft is Ubuntu customization with a collection of computer forensic programs and documents created by thousands of individuals, teams and companies. Each of these works might come under a different licence. There Licence Policy describes the process that we follow in determining which software we will ship and by default on the deft install CD.

6.  Samurai Web Security FrameworkTop Operating systems for hackers

The Samurai Web Testing Framework is a live Linux environment that has been pre-configured to function as a web pen-testing environment. The CD contains the best of the open source and free tools that focus on testing and attacking websites. In developing this environment, we have based our tool selection on the tools we use in our security practice. We have included the tools used in all four steps of a web pen-test.

7.  Network Security Toolkit(NST)Top Operating systems for hackers

Network Security Toolkit (NST) is a boot able live CD based on Fedora Core. The toolkit was designed to provide easy access to best-of-breed open source network security applications and should run on most x86 platforms. The main intent of developing this toolkit was to provide the network security administrator with a comprehensive set of open source network security tools.
What we find rather fascinating with NST is that we can transform most x86 systems (Pentium II and above) into a system designed for network traffic analysis, intrusion detection, network packet generation, wireless network monitoring, a virtual system service server, or a sophisticated network/host scanner.

8.  BugtraqTop Operating systems for hackers

Bugtraq is an electronic mailing list dedicated to issues about computer security. On-topic issues are new discussions about vulnerabilities, vendor security-related announcements, methods of exploitation, and how to fix them. It is a high-volume mailing list, and almost all new vulnerabilities are discussed there.
Bugtraq team is experienced freaks and developers, It is available in Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuSe in 32 and 64 bit architectures.

9.  NodeZeroTop Operating systems for hackers

NodeZero Linux is no different from other Operating systems. There team is built of testers and developers, who have come to the census that live systems do not offer what they need in their security audits. Penetration Testing distributions tend to have historically utilized the "Live" system concept of Linux, which really means that they try not to make any permanent effects to a system. Ergo all changes are gone after reboot, and run from media such as discs and USB drives. However all that this maybe very handy for occasional testing, its usefulness can be depleted when your testing regularly. Its there believe that "Live System's" just don't scale well in a robust testing environment.
All though Node Zero Linux can be used as a "Live System" for occasional testing, its real strength comes from the understanding that a tester requires a strong and efficient system. This is achieved in our belief by working at a distribution that is a permanent installation, that benefits from a strong selection of tools, integrated with a stable Linux environment.

10.  Cyborg HawkTop Operating systems for hackers

The most advanced, powerful and yet beautiful penetration testing distribution ever created. Lined up with ultimate collection of tools for pro Ethical Hackers and Cyber Security Experts. It has 700 + tools while Kali have 300+ and also dedicated tools for and menu for mobile security and malware analysis . Also it is easy to compare it with Kali as to make a better OS than Kali we have to outperform it. It is a new operating system based on Ubuntu linux, i am not tested this OS that is why i placed it in the last of this list.
Cyborg Hawk is developed by Team Cyborg led by Vaibhav Singh and Shahnawaz Alam from Ztrela Knowledge Solutions Pvt. Ltd.
