Kali Developer - Mati Aharoni

The Advanced HID keyboard is like a Teensy device but you can SSH to it over 3G.

Penetration Tester - Sean Brown

As an experienced penetration tester or security professional, it is imperative that you trust the tools you work with. One way to achieve this trust is by having full transparency and familiarity with the code you are running. You are free to read, investigate, and change our build scripts for the Kali NetHunter images.

HID Keyboard and ‘BadUSB’ Attacks

Our Kali NetHunter images support programmable HID keyboard attacks, (a-la-teensy), as well as “BadUSB” network attacks, allowing an attacker to easily MITM an unsuspecting target by simply connecting their device to a computer USB port. In addition to these built in features, we’ve got a whole set of native Kali Linux tools available for use, many of which are configurable through a simple web interface.

Configuration Management

The Kali NetHunter configuration interface allows you to easily configure complex configuration files through a local web interface. This feature, together with a custom kernel that supports 802.11 wireless injection and preconfigured connect back VPN services, make the Kali NetHunter a formidable network security tool or discrete drop box - with Kali Linux at the tip of your fingers wherever you are!

App Store

Kali NetHunter has its own app store allowing you to grow the potential of Kali NetHunter.
