STD: Security Tools Distribution

"STD is a Linux-based Security Tool. Actually, it is a collection of hundreds if not thousands of open source security tools. It's a Live Linux Distro, which means it runs from a bootable CD in memory without changing the native operating system of the host computer. Its sole purpose in life is to put as many security tools at your disposal with as slick an interface as it can." read more...

Thanks for this blog. I intend making it a daily read.

But your readers should know, if they don't already, that Knoppix-STD has not been updated since version 0.1, which dates no later than 04/11/2005.

I just calculated the MD5 hash of the version I have archived, whose timestamp has that date, and it matches the hash published on the Knoppix-STD homepage exactly.

I appreciate your comment! I know and that's really wired, because they still trying to set up new backups and mirrors for their download server while not doing any update to their product itself. I will try to contact them and see if they have any intention to update it in the near future.
