We maintain a special build of Fedora Linux for Raspberry Pi with the Security Spin packages pre-installed, plus some accessories and services already set up, to make using your Pi as a hacking and security-testing platform easy. It’s a great OS for students and teachers of hacking and security, and saves both a lot of time building a stable, updateable toolset.
These OS images (and a growing heap of goodies) are available to registered students of School for Hackers. Use the Register link at the top of the page to create an account, then log in to see extra menu items and pages. Then visit our Setup page for instructions on how to load the image, change passwords, connect via VNC or SSH and get started with the Security Lab tools: https://schoolforhackers.com/set-up-your-fedora-pi-card/.
You can use our School for Hackers Linux on a Raspberry Pi, as a Virtual Machine or directly installed onto your laptop. We’re building our hacking lessons for exactly this platform, so for the most part you’ll find everything pre-installed (except where we need to teach you how installation works). We recommend it as the best OS for our School for Hackers students.
