Network Security Toolkit

(Back to


Network Security Toolkit (NST) is a bootable live CD based on Fedora Core. The toolkit was designed to provide easy access to best-of-breed open source network security applications and should run on most x86 platforms. The main intent of developing this toolkit was to provide the network security administrator with a comprehensive set of open source network security tools. What we find rather fascinating with NST is that we can transform most x86 systems (Pentium II and above) into a system designed for network traffic analysis, intrusion detection, network packet generation, wireless network monitoring, a virtual system service server, or a sophisticated network/host scanner.

Network Security Toolkit(NST)是一张可引导的自启动运行光盘,它基于Fedora Core。这份工具包被设计为能够方便地使用最好的开源网络安全应用软件,并应能在大多数x86平台上运行。开发该工具包的主要目的是向网络安全管理员提供一套较全面的开源网络安全工具。我们发现NST非常有吸引力,因为我们可以用这份自启动运行光盘将大多数x86系统(奔腾II或更高级的处理器)转换为一份特定设备,它可以执行网络流量分析,入侵监测,网络包注入,无线网络监控,模拟系统服务,或是用作一台精密的网络/主机扫描器。
