BackTrack is a Linux distribution distributed as a Live CD which resulted from the merger of WHAX (previously Whoppix) and the Auditor Security Collection, which is used for penetration testing. It allows the user to include customizable scripts, additional tools and configurable kernels in personalized distributions. The BackTrack project was created by Mati Aharoni and Max Moser and is a collaborative effort involving the community.
BackTrack是基于Slackware和SLAX的自启动运行光盘，它包含了一套计算机安全取证工具。它其实是依靠融合Auditor Security Linux和WHAX（先前的Whoppix）而创建成的。
BackTrack focuses its central idea on the needs of Penetration testers. The inclusion of Live CD and Live USB functionality enables any user to just insert their respective data medium and boot up BackTrack. Direct hard disk installations (2.7 GB uncompressed) can also be completed within the Live DVD (1.5 GB compressed) environment through the basic graphical installation wizard with no restart subsequent to installation. BackTrack further continues its compatibility with the computer forensics demographic with accessibility and internationalization by including support for Japanese input in reading and writing in Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji.
The key additions to the BackTrack suite are notably -
* Metasploit integration
* RFMON Injection capable wireless drivers
* AutoScan-Network - AutoScan-Network is a network discovering and managing application
* Wireshark (formerly known as Ethereal)
BackTrack's functionality further increases with the arrangement of each tool in 11 categories. The tool categories are as follows -
* Information Gathering
* Network Mapping
* Vulnerability Identification
* Web Application Analysis
* Radio Network Analysis (802.11,Bluetooth,Rfid)
* Penetration (Exploit & Social Engineering Toolkit)
* Privilege Escalation
* Maintaining Access
* Digital Forensics
* Reverse Engineering
* Voice Over IP
In relation to basic software packages, BackTrack includes some ordinary desktop programs such as Mozilla Firefox, Pidgin, K3b, and XMMS.
除了基本的软件 BackTrack还包含一些常用桌面程序，如Firefox, Pidgin, K3b, XMMS等。
