So, to be upfront, I'm not a pentester. But, I wanted to share this info and these videos about the STORM Mobile Pen-Testing Kit, as I find the tool intriguing. First, I found the following info on the EC Council website:"The Storm Mobile Security Toolkit is mobile training on a versatile, portable Raspberry Pi-based, touchscreen, tailor-made system. It is a customized, customizable*, fully-loaded pen test platform! The Storm comes equipped with a customized distro of Kali Linux and the course of your choice (or 2) on the device. Take your CEH training with you. Take your hacking by Storm!"Interesting. In the "Terms of Use" section, the EC Council notes the following:"Note: The STORM mobile security tool kit contains a full Kali Linux load including all of the associated security tools. These tools are very powerful and all proper precautions should be adhered to at all times.
Always remember that the difference between illegal and ethical hacking comes down to one word; permission. It is illegal to utilize these or any other pen testing tools on a network or website without permission.As stated in the terms and conditions, EC-Council is not responsible for illegal use of these tools and you accept the full liability for its usage. The entire code of ethics can be found here."Good to know. Next, I found the toolkit specs:
  • 64 Bit – Quad Core Mobile System with Case
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 7 inch touch screen display
  • 64 GB MicroSD – Preloaded w/Custom Linux Hacking OS
  • 100Mb Ethernet port
