Penetration Testing With Kali Linux Using Raspberry Pi – Pros and Cons
As stated in various parts of Penetration testing with Raspberry Pi and Kali Linux training courses, the Raspberry Pi is designed to be an inexpensive computing option designed for various purposes. Inexpensive systems offer limited computing power, so one major drawback when using a Raspberry Pi for any type of penetration testing is its lack of power to run resource-intensive tasks.
For this reason, it’s highly recommended that use a Raspberry Pi for specific tasks rather than a go-to attack arsenal, as a full-blown Kali Linux installation offers many more tools over the limited Kali Linux ARM architecture.
The following two screenshots show the difference between the options available for one toolset category in the Kali Linux ARM architecture and a full-blown Kali Linux installation. We also found that some of the tools in the Kali Linux ARM do not function properly when they are run from the GUI, or they just failed in general.
You will find more reliable tools in a full-blown installation of Kali Linux on a more powerful system than a Raspberry Pi. Here is the Kali Linux ARM screenshot showing Live Host Identification tools, which are ncat and nmap:
Here are the tool options for the same Live Host Identification category found in a full-blown installation of Kali Linux. As you can see in the following screenshot, a lot more options are offered:
