Backtrack book screenWhen you want to know what's happening on your network, systems, or applications, but not install a auditing software, Linux (and BSD and occasionally Windows) distributions "Live CDs" can help. Live CDs are OS distributions on a CD- or DVD-ROM that you can boot and run directly from the CD and RAM, without installing anything to the hard drive. In a Right Tool for the Job blog post, David HM Specter explains how you can perform security audits using the Backtrack Linux Live CD. This gallery shows you several of the Backtrack tools in action.
