Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Local Area Security Linux 0.4b

L.A.S. Linux is a 'live CD' distribution of Linux which allows the applications to be run from the CD without the need for installing anything on the computer. The focus of L.A.S. is create a bootable toolkit for information security professionals and systems administrators. The advantage of L.A.S. is that it has a very small footprint. This small footprint makes it able to fit on a 185MB mini-CD. The goal of L.A.S. Linux is to provide a well-rounded tool in a small package.

Despite its small size, L.A.S. contains over 100 security tools along with basic desktop applications. L.A.S. has an array or forensic, penetration testing, intrusion detection, sniffers, and administrative utilities.

Changes in this latest version of L.A.S. include the addition of Ettercap-GTK, Clam Anti-Virus, MiniCOM, SpikeProxy, MRTG, and many of the Cisco-centric Open Source Exchange tools.
