Kali Linux Community and Support Policy

Kali Linux Community Support

Kali, through BackTrack, has a diverse and vibrant community including security professionals and enthusiasts alike. Over the years of Kali development (and previously BackTrack) our approach to Kali Linux support has become more focused. While Kali Linux is a Penetration Testing Linux distribution, we do not provide penetration testing support, or even tool usage support, as some might expect. We limit our support to Kali Linux operating system and packaging issues and encourage users to search for answers to their penetration testing related issues in better suited support channels. This allows us to focus all our attention on developing Kali Linux and maintaining our high quality development cycle.

Official Kali Linux Community Support Channels

To eliminate any doubt or confusion, we have listed below, all of the official links and channels related to the Kali Linux distribution and release. Any other source outside this list is not official and should not be trusted to represent Kali Linux.
