Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the all-new PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, Aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks...

BarsWF is the worlds fastest md5 bruteforcing password cracker, just in case you didn't already know.
It combines using your computers processor with you graphics cards GPU for computing the largest amount of hashes as quickly as possible. It is not unheard of to get 100's of millions of hashes per second when using this application.

Prerequisites which really dont need to be mentioned are a processor with SSE2 instruction set, and any nvidia geforce 8 and up graphics card with CUDA support if you want the really fast one, otherwise most decently new nvidia graphics cards bought in the past 2 years should be able to work with this.

Immunity's CANVAS makes available hundreds of exploits, an automated exploitation system, and a comprehensive, reliable exploit development framework to penetration testers and security professionals worldwide. To see CANVAS in action please see the movies at

Supported Platforms and Installations
# Windows (requires Python & PyGTK)
# Linux
# MacOSX (requires PyGTK)
# All other Python environments such as mobile phones and commercial Unixes (command line version only supported, GUI may also be available)

# currently over 400 exploits, an average of 4 exploits added every monthly release
# Immunity carefully selects vulnerabilities for inclusion as CANVAS exploits. Top priorities are high-value vulnerabilities such as remote, pre-authentication, and new vulnerabilities in mainstream software.
# Exploits span all common platforms and applications

Payload Options
# to provide maximum reliability, exploits always attempt to reuse socket
# if socket reuse is not suitable, connect-back is used
# subsequent MOSDEF session allows arbitrary code execution, and provides a listener shell for common actions (file management, screenshots, etc)
# bouncing and split-bouncing automatically available via MOSDEF
# adjustable covertness level

Ability to make Custom Exploits
# unique MOSDEF development environment allows rapid exploit development

# CANVAS is a platform that is designed to allow easy development of other security products. Examples include Gleg, Ltd's VulnDisco and the Argeniss Ultimate 0day Exploits Pack.

Cygwin is the next best thing to using Linux.
I personally do not use a windows box period, work, school, or other, unless I have Cygwin installed.
It's a large download, but once you get use to using it there's no turning back.
I have actually created a condensed copy that I carry around on my flash drive.
It comes complete with most Unix/Linux commands, to include the ability to compile things on the fly with gcc, perl, etc..
It has many useful things about it, but the only way to really see the extent of them is to use it yourself unless you like reading pages of technical data to help put you to sleep at night.

FYI...Last I checked it was currently managed by RedHat.

DBAN- Short for Darik's Boot and Nuke, is a good utility for securely erasing contents of hard disk.
It uses encryption and re-writing over drives multiple times for a fairly secure deletion which makes if very difficult if not impossible to recover using forensics.

Faronics Deep Freeze helps eliminate workstation damage and downtime by making computer configurations indestructible. Once Deep Freeze is installed on a workstation, any changes made to the computer—regardless of whether they are accidental or malicious—are never permanent. Deep Freeze provides immediate immunity from many of the problems that "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named." computers today—inevitable configuration drift, accidental system misconfiguration, malicious software activity, and incidental system degradation.

Deep Freeze ensures computers are absolutely bulletproof, even when users have full access to system software and settings. Users get to enjoy a pristine and unrestricted computing experience, while IT personnel are freed from tedious helpdesk requests, constant system maintenance, and continuous configuration drift.
