Trinux: A Linux Security Toolkit v0.47

Matthew Franz

Trinux is a micro-Linux distribution that boots from 2-3
floppies or a FAT partition and provides a comprehensive set of
Open Source network security tools useful for monitoring and
mapping TCP/IP networks. Trinux runs entirely in RAM, transparently
converting any i386 PC with at least 16MB of memory into a powerful
network security management workstation. NICs supported by Linux
kernel 2.0.36 should be compatible and experimental support is
available for laptops/PCMCIA.

Due to its modular design, users can easily create customized
tool-sets on non-UNIX platforms simply by copying Trinux package
files to a MS-DOS formatted floppy. The ultimate goal of the Trinux
project is to provide a complete set of Open Source security
solutions for network mapping/vulnerability assessment, IDS/network
monitoring, firewalls, high performance secure web servers, and
network deception/honey pots. See the web page for formal
development objectives.

Trinux is currently maintained by less than a dozen developers
but welcomes the assistance of members of the Linux/Open
Source/security community. If you are interested in contributing to
this project send me an email after stopping by the Trinux web

Trinux is released under the terms of GPL.
