Kali Linux the most versatile and advanced penetration testing Linux distribution in the world and It’s a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing. It is maintained and funded by Offensive Security Ltd. It was developed by Mati Aharoni and Devon Kearns of Offensive Security through the rewriting BackTrack, their previous forensics Linux distribution.
Kali Linux is the new generation of the industry-leading BackTrack Linux penetration testing and security auditing Linux distribution. Kali Linux is a complete re-build of BackTrack from the ground up, adhering completely to Debian development standards.

Kali Linux Encrypted USB Persistence:
One of the new sought out features introduced (which is also partially responsible for the kernel update) is the ability to create Kali Linux Live USB with LUKS Encrypted Persistence. This feature users in a new era of secure Kali Linux USB portability, allowing us to either boot to a “clean” Kali image or alternatively, overlay it with the contents of a persistent encrypted partition, all within the same USB drive.
These features range from things like “live-build“, which allows our end users to easily customize their own Kali ISOs, to features like Live USB persistence encryption, which provides paranoid users with an extra layer of security. Many of these features are unique to Kali and can be found nowhere else
Regular users who don’t need to re-download or re-install Kali to benefit from these updates – you can update to the latest and greatest using these simple commands
