Kali Linux is an open source operating system designed from the ground up as a drop-in replacement for the well known BackTrack penetration testing Linux distribution.

It features timely security updates, support for the ARM architecture, a choice of four popular desktop environments, and seamless upgrades to newer versions.

It was developed by Mati Aharoni and Devon Kearns of Offensive Security through the rewrite of BackTrack, their previous forensics Linux distribution based on Ubuntu.

The third core developer Raphaël Hertzog joined them as Debian expert.

Default applications include the Iceweasel web browser, Empathy IM client, VLC Media Player, and Brasero CD/DVD burning tool.

Kali Linux is based on Debian Wheezy. Most packages Kali uses are imported from the Debian repositories.
