PHLAK is designed as the security professional's tool kit. It is not meant to turn the unexperienced into a security guru overnight. However, anyone with the desire can learn from the included tools and documentation.
Like any good tool, PHLAK can be used by Sith or Jedi alike. Included in the distribution are all the mainstream tools such as: nmap, nessus, snort, the coronor's toolkit, ethereal, and several other security packages. Some of the other lesser known, yet equally effective, tools include: hping2, proxychains, lczroex, ettercap, kismet, hunt, achilies, brutus, and many others. Make no mistake, this is a real Linux distribution including many common services such as apache, mysql, ssh, iptables, and most other services that are included on any other standard distribution.
To make things more user-friendly, PHLAK currently includes two fast, light-weight window managers, XFCE4 (the default) and Fluxbox. From these window managers the user has easy access to the powerful documentation system. Currently included in the XFCE4 user interface are quick-start buttons to initiate services and different firewall settings for those who are command line impaired.
Remember that PHLAK is still in its infancy. It is constantly progressing towards the level the developers had originally envisioned. The future versions of PHLAK will better harness the modularity of its Morphix origin as well as increase its base of hardware support and detection. The project team is dedicated to expanding and updating the PHLAK security arsenal as well as making it more available to a broader user base. They foresee it becoming the Professional Hacker's Linux Assault Kit. Make no mistake, the Internet is an unfriendly environment. Arm yourself well.
