Security is a state in which we ensure a proper gap between the threats and assets of an organization. We try to either move assets far away from threats or we try to somehow apply good security controls in between the two. When we talk about Security, we have to focus on both Application and Operating System. However OS itself is quite stable and less probe to attacks, i.e. you will get with some hard time getting a serious attack vector.

Kali Linux is a Linux penetration testing and security auditing Linux distribution. After its release in March 2013, Kali Linux has quickly become the new favourite among Pen Testers worldwide as their choice for the Pen testing OS. Replacing its predecessor Backtrack, Kali incorporated several new features and looks quite promising.

Today we’ll discuss the Gloom-Framework which is a Linux Penetration Testing Framework and was written in Python. The windows version is not available yet and is only meant for Linux distributions.

Installation of Gloom Framework in Kali Linux –

After that you need to install this tool by typing “python install.py

To run the framework, type “sudo python gloom.py
