As a penetration tester, I know that you usually choose to use Kali Linux like penetration testing distribution. Kali Linux is a powerful distribution. It includes many, many pentesting tools. If you are Ubuntu/ Linux Mint users, you love the simple, easy-to-use and friendly-GUI of them, but you still want to conduct your penetration testing on your Ubuntu/Linux Mint system. On this topic, I am going to guide you to make Ubuntu/Linux Mint as penetration testing distribution by using The Penetration Testing Framework (PTF).
The PenTesters Framework (PTF) is a Python script designed for Debian/Ubuntu/ArchLinux based distributions to create a similar and familiar distribution for Penetration Testing. As pentesters, we’ve been accustom to the /pentest/ directories or our own toolsets that we want to keep up-to-date all of the time. We have those “go to” tools that we use on a regular basis, and using the latest and greatest is important.
