The USB armory from Inverse Path is an open source hardware design, implementing a flash drive sized computer. Kali Linux fits on a micro SD card for it.
Kali on USB armory - User Instructions
If all you want to do is install Kali on your USB armory, follow these instructions:
- Get a nice fast 8 GB micro SD card.
- Download the Kali USB armory image from our downloads area.
- Use the dd utility to image this file to your microSD device. In our example, we use a microSD which is located at /dev/sdb. Change this as needed.
This process will wipe out your SD card. If you choose the wrong storage device, you may wipe out your computers hard disk.
xzcat kali-linux-$version-usbarmory.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
This process can take awhile depending on your device speed and image size.
Once the dd operation is complete, boot up a computer with the USB armory plugged in. Log in to Kali, that's it, you're done!
