I don’t know if this trick is well known because I haven’t seen it documented anywhere. You can install Kali Linux APT packages on any Debian machine. Yes, any Debian, not Kali!.
Why would you wanna do that? Well, let’s say your employer wants you to do tests from a Debian server. It happened to me, they wanted all tests to originate from the same IP and provided a shared Debian server.
Some tools are only available as Kali packages, and can’t be found on Github or anywhere else. Also, installing tools with APT is always better because then they’re easier to update (with
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade).
Here is how you do it:
- Go to http://git.kali.org/gitweb/
- Look for the tool you want. It must be available by default on Kali, like lbd
- Click on “packages/lbd.git” (in the “Project” column) & copy the package’s URL
- Install the package on your Debian with:
git clone git://git.kali.org/packages/lbd.git
