fsl – Fedora Security Lab

fsl (Fedora Security Lab) is a customized Fedora OS for security hack/test based Fedora 19. Like the famous BackTrace Linux, fsl has integrated a butch of security tools. To take the advantage of fsl, either security liveCD or all the security pkgs included in fsl is needed. For the later solution, a shell script – fsli (Fedora Security Lab Install) is written to ease the tedious job.

1. LiveCD


2. yum (Fedora 19)

yum groupinstall security-lab

3. ansible (Fedora <19)

yum install ansible
wget https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/security-spin.git/plain/ansible-playbooks/fsl-packages.yml
ansible-playbook fsl-packages.yml -f 10

NOTE: hosts file may needs to configure…

4. fsli.sh (Fedora Any)
