My Favourite Tools (smirk)

The obligatory posting of favourite security tools:
  • Nmap
    • The tool that has rocked many a world.
    • nmap -sI 4lyfe
  • Tcprelay
    • Great for knocking over flaky services
  • Nemesis
    • A bit like witchcraft for packets.
  • Putty (is there an alternative?!)
    • SSH Client.
  • Nessus
    • The lazy way.
  • Powerpoint
    • No jokes. The most effective way I know of explaining security to the PHBs other than knocking them over the head with a brick.
