0 17

This tutorial walk you through installing Kali Linux Tools using Katoolin in Ubuntu. For those who don’t know, Katoolin is a Python script which is used to install all Kali Linux tools at once or manually one by one. Kali Linux has more than 300 penetration testing tools. Instead of installing all tools, you can install only selective tools of your choice in your Linux box using Katoolin. If you ever wanted to try the Kali Linux tools on Ubuntu or any other DEB based systems, you should give Katoolin a try. It will add Kali Linux repositories in your Ubuntu system, so that you can either install all pentesting tools at once or install only what is necessary. Katoolin is completely free, open source and is officially tested on Debian based systems.

Installing Katoolin in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

I have tested Katoolin in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS server edition. However, It should work on other Ubuntu versions and derivatives.

Make sure you have installed the following prerequisites in your Ubuntu system.

  • Python 2.7.
  • Git.

These packages are available in the default repositories of Ubuntu, so you can install them using apt package manager.

$ sudo apt-get install python git

Here is my test machine details:

python and git version

Well, we have everything in place. After installing the prerequisites, install Katoolin as shown below:

$ git clone https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin.git

The above command will clone the katoolin repository in a folder named “katoolin” your current working directory.

Next, copy the Katoolin binary to your path, for example /usr/bin/, as shown below.

$ sudo cp katoolin/katoolin.py /usr/bin/katoolin

Finally, make Katoolin binary file as executable:

$ sudo chmod  x /usr/bin/katoolin

We have now installed Katoolin. Let us go ahead and see how to use it.
