Fedora Security Spin

Wiki Page Purpose
This page follows the Spins_Process. The Development Home can be found at


The Fedora Security Spin is a live media based on Fedora to provide a safe test environment for working on security auditing, forensics and penetration testing, coupled with all the Fedora Security features and tools.


Detailed Description

The spin is maintained by a community of Security testers and developers. It comes with the clean and fast Xfce Desktop Environment and a customized menu to have all the instruments one may need to follow a proper test path on security testing or to rescue a broken system. With the read-write rootfs, it is possible to install software while the live media is running. The Fedora livemedia-creator provides an overlay feature to put the Fedora Security Lab on an USB stick so that the user can install and update software and can save his test-

results permanently.
