The Ultimate Guide to Installing Kali Linux 2.0 - Cybrary1Set Up Your Machine 
Kali Linux is the most advanced penetration testing distribution. It comes from the Offensive Security team. It's a Debian-based distribution that comes with a various penetration testing tools (John the Ripper, Namp, Wireshark, Burp Suite etc...). Offensive Security (who are also the funders, founders and developers of backtrack ) have generated alternate images of Kali using the same build infrastructure as the official Kali releases.
You can download your image from here : https://www.kali.org/downloads/
Or, if you want to customize your ISO (KDE, LXDE, MATE, XFCE and other customizations), just use this simple, basic process :

apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrapgit clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.gitcd live-build-config

2./build.sh --distribution sana --verbose
 
Add Your SSH Public Key to Kali 2.0 

root@kali:~# grep Root /etc/ssh/sshd_configPermitRootLogin without-password

PS: Don’t forget to keep the Kali System up to date using apt-get update andapt-get dist-upgrade commands.
