PenTest Labs Using LiveCDs

Presented at The Last HOPE (2008), July 20, 2008, 10 a.m. (60 minutes)

Despite being discussed in both books and a magazine article, the Pentest LiveCD project is not well known.

In addition, a new project will be presented for the first time for those interested in learning more about Pentest tools.
