Trusted contributed VMWare and ARM images by Offensive Security

The good folks at Offensive Security (who are also the funders, founders, and developers of Kali Linux) have generated alternate flavours of Kali using the same build infrastructure as the official Kali releases. Saying this, these images are considered “unofficial” and will be maintained on a best effort basis by Offensive Security. Due to the ever increasing amount of ARM images, we have separated these downloads from the official Kali ISO images. VMWare and ARM Kali images produced by Offensive Security can now be found at the Offensive Security Kali Linux ARM and VMWare Images page.
