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 livecd 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 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.
