The Fedoraproject Security Spin

The Fedora Security Spin is a Fedora Linux Live CD to provide a safe and secure test-environment for working on security-auditing, forensics and penetration-testing, coupled with all the Fedora-Security features and tools. It was originaly build by Luke Macken, Adam John Miller and is now owened by Jörg Simon and came first out with F12.

The Security Spin is maintained by a community of Security Testers and Developers. It comes with the clean and fast LXDE Desktop Enviroment and a customized menu to have all the instruments one may need to follow a proper test-path on security testing[1]or to rescue a broken system. With the read-write rootfs, it is possible to install software while the livecd is running. The Fedora liveusb-creator provides an overlay feature to put the security-spin on an usb-stick so that the user can install and update software - and can save his test-results permanently.
