Offensive Security

Kali Linux is especially well suited in environments where high security is needed for your custom developed applications. This is well suited for offensive testing your high security in house developed applications. It is also very good for doing penetration testing on in house developed applications and safe guarding them from external attackers. Kali Linux is tough for use as a day to day Linux operating system as this was never intended to be used by beginners and occasional Linux users.

Open Source

Nikto is well suited for scanning web server-related vulnerabilities for small and medium enterprises. We can utilise it for checking server default files and security misconfigurations. It is not suited well for some users because it is CLI based tool and not a GUI based. Also, community and OEM support are not available for this tool.

      Offensive Security

      As Parrot security OS is relatively new to the game, Kali Linux has an edge as it is in the market since 2013. Kali Linux has an advantage that it is opensource and has good back end technical support by open source developers worldwide. Also Parrot security OS is based on cloud environments and Kali Linux OS is made to run in house.
