Non avrebbe senso rifare Backtrack, non trovi?
Backbox ha la sua identità. E' nata come raccolta di programmi molto utilizzati nei pentest. Si sta evolvendo anche nel campo della computer forensics con uno stile differente, direi più vicino alle richieste degli utenti. Accogliamo proposte nuove, specie se si tratta di integrare tools molto efficaci. Nel nostro caso non si tratta di una distro preconfezionata e imposta così com'è. Qui è molto importante il contributo di persone che hanno proposte nuove e intelligenti. Per quanto riguarda il confronto, l'articolo su oversecurity credo nasca dall'esigenza di dare una risposta agli utenti che si chiedono quale sia la migliore, senza però dare la risposta. Semplicemente perchè non esiste. Si tratta di target differenti, pur sempre nell'ambito del pentesting. E soprattutto, Backbox non è un sottoinsieme di Backtrack. Le evoluzioni delle due distribuzioni sono indipendenti, tanti tools sono in comune e altri no. Backbox è pensata per essere facile, veloce e per crescere grazie al contributo di tutti. Certo che sono possibili pentest molto approfonditi, sempre che esista una definizione di "pentest veloce". La domanda "questi 100 tools sono sufficienti per fare quello che con la BT si fa con 300 tools?", trova la risposta anche in quello che ha detto prima ostendali. Il nostro team non si è mai posto l'obiettivo di superare gli altri. Non modifichiamo o rincorriamo i nostri obiettivi per convincere gli utenti che la nostra distribuzione sia la migliore, ma lasciamo decidere a loro se la nostra ditribuzione sia utile. Finora non ho mai sentito qualcuno lamentarsi del fatto che su Backbox si soffra la mancanza di programmi presenti su Backtrack.

You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself.

Mi piacerebbe sapere chi usa tutti i 300 tool presenti in backtrack... detto questo, nessuno vieta di installarsi i tool mancanti in backbox qualora fossero indispensabili per il proprio lavoro.
Ad ogni modo, a me è capitato di fare pentest a livello professionale, e con backbox mi sono trovato benissimo, mi sono installato i tool che a me servivano separatamente e non ho nessun  problema...
Sinceramente 300 tool mi sembrano anche esagerati, inoltre, non è la quantità di tool che aumentano l'efficienza di un pentest, ma come sai usare quei tool e dalle competenze che hai, che fanno la differenza

Per non dimenticare che quei 300 tools devono essere aggiornati costantemente se vogliono mantenere la loro efficienza nell'ambito dell'IT Security.

Per quanto mi riguarda, il passaggio da BackTrack 5 R1 a BackBox 2.01 è stato trasparente, con l'aggiunta di un sistema perfettamente usabile, snello e stabile.
Soltanto vantaggi.

C'è anche da aggiungere, che BB dopo l'installazione presenta una maggiore hardenizzazione del sistema ristetto BT....

Well this is my first post (replay) in this forum, Hello!

Backtrack has every thing to be a security station but stability!
heavy modification in kernel make it unstable and I think it's not good for everyday using as a desktop.
best way for bt is run from usb beside main os.
desktop is e little rough.

but backbox is different, it's very stable and we can use it a os for everyday using. desktop is very nice and light. (i personally like
light desktop like openbox or fluxbox and xfce, hate gnome 3).
security tools are really complete and i think there is not any weakness against bt.

I'm using bt under virtualbox in bb!

but what is power of bt? it's old and pioneer in its way.

Hi everyone this is my first post here @Backbox, I am a proffesional pentester working for a very large company.
And I am totally disillusioned with Backtrack, especially BT5R2.
The new release has too many problems, NVidia drivers that I just can't get working and updates that don't work etc etc.
So I am as I type this post downloading Backbox linux amd64 in hope that its more stable easier to look after and in general a better experience.
I has also took the liberty of looking around the forums and I find its a much nicer place than BT forums, you guys know what you're doing and don't mind helping others.
Keep up the great work.

Dave

Hi Dave,

We're a Lot Like You, and little different in same time. Once, when you will use BBox, and most of your pentest run without problems, you will be happy because you have found this place and this great team.

Hope to see you in the future !


Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
