PHLAK is a modular security distribution. It is a derivative of Morphix, created by Alex de Landgraaf. It can be used as a live cd by security professionals to perform security analysis, penetration testing, forensics, and security auditing on a system to check whether it has been compromised in terms of security.

The thing i like the most about it is that it provides one with enough security documentation to be able to help him become a security expert. It has a file cabinet full of security related documentation for your reading/educational purposes.

This distribution comes with the best security tools like hping2, proxychains, lczroex, ettercap, kismet, hunt, achilies, brutus,nmap,nessus, snort, the coronor’s toolkit, ethereal and many others.

It also has standard features like apache, mysql ,iptables, programming compilers etc that come with the linux distributions.

It is user-friendly as it includes two fast, light-weight window managers, XFCE4 (the default) and Fluxbox.

One thing that this distribution lacks is that it is 3.5 years old and new version is nowhere to be seen whereas other penetration testing systems like backtrack are new and under active development.

Note:It's security documentation the one you'll definitely want to have.
