Questions tagged [kali-linux]

This tag should be used if your question involves Kali Linux, a Linux distribution based on Debian. Question regarding Kali Linux should not be related to specific setup (installing specific driver, modifying sources.list...) but oriented toward usage of Kali Linux tools. Kali is often used for security testing and comes with a huge set of tools for that. It is not a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution.
