    I personally do part time work as a network penetration tester. Its one more tool in my pen testing suite. The point is "hacking" networks from a mobile device.

    I've not really looked into it but can you get pen test apps for android? I figured being based off Linux there should be..

    kinda pointless for me, lately just cracking wifi's but 1+ wifi card does not support monitor mode. bcmon, Reaver RfA, nothing works.

    You can use a USB otg cable and an external WiFi card.

    It's really more used as a hardware backdoor once you have gained access to a network. You can also compile lookup tables with cowpatty, create wordlists with JTR, and other computational tasks.

    Its not really used for injecting packets, capturing handshakes, bruteforcing wps, etc., but you can with the right hardware attachments.

    I have alfa card 2.000 mW, on another location though so can't test it right away. If I get it to work I will try to install full Kali, Linux Deploy etc

    During this week I will try to install it, will post updates here.
    thisguysayswht, which version of Kali I should download ? For my dual boot pc I have Kali Linux 64 bit 1.0.8, but there is an additional choice of 32 bit, ARMEL, ARMHF images. What do you suggest ?

    I think kali support for ARM...... So it could work on mobile device but some one have to port it for this device......

    2014-08-11_143657.jpg Thanks for link, purchasing it now. I am taking this "With Micro Power", right ?

    I already have Alfa AWUS036NH 2000mW, chipset Realtek8187L I think, so will not purchase tplink if is not necessary.

    Just to confirm - I am downloading ARM image ? >> http://www.kali.org/downloads/

    Kali Linux ARMEL Image or Kali Linux ARMHF Image ?

    Yes that WiFi card will work great, it fully supports monitor mode (I actually have the same card).

    Definitely a good idea to get the powered otg adapter, most devices can power that card with a kernel that supports USB host mode charging, but most utilities in Kali take time, so its nice to be able to charge, and mount your card at the same time.

    As far as what version, just use Linux deploy, it will download/install the latest up to date distribution. No need to manually download.


    If your looking to conserve space manually install the mini iso, and apt-get all your needed packages. The mini iso is about 1.5gb, and the full instillation is just over 4gb (depending on your preferred desktop environment).

    If you have the space I recommend the full install, just to save the time/hassle of building your dependencies/packages.

    Happy hunting. :p

    All relevant settings are already set, follow http://www.kali.org/how-to/kali-linux-android-linux-deploy/

    You will need some previous knowledge for linux platform, Google search is really helpful here.
    for example you will need to update
    apt-get update

    then upgrade

    to get root you need
    sudo -s

    to do a full kali install you need
    apt-get install kali-linux -yq

    and you need to give it more than 7 Gb, I have used 16 Gb because of future upgrades and custom wordlists and some other stuff.

    Many things will not work "out the box", many dependencies are missing for some reason, if you are not going to do a proper google search and increase learning curve, its better not to start with this.

    I'm pretty sure you still need an external WiFi card even with nethunter.
    I've had Kali on my phone but it seems by the time I have an OTG cable, a power adapter, and a WiFi card plugged in, I may as well just be using a laptop.
