Note: This is work in progress. Not all packages are available at the moment.


Alpine Security provides a toolset to work on security auditing, forensics, system rescue, and teaching security testing methodologies. The tool list contains packages for code analysis, forensics and data recovery, reconnaissance, network statistics, VoIP, wireless lan, and IDS.

The target is not to start a competition with the Fedora Security Lab or Backtrack. But rather make it easy to use the particular tools with Alpine Linux in a small, non GUI, and busybox-based system.

With the simple python-based config-builder script this page can be transformed into a plaintext file for the usage with alpine-iso.
