A GPS is a necessity to properly perform an RF assessment.
Without this it's simply impossible to determine where and how far RF signals are propagating.
A good example of a reasonably priced spectrum analyzer is the Kaltman Creations HF4060 RF Spectrum Analyzer.
An 802.11 USB adapter allow for the easy connection of a wireless adapter to the penetration testing system.
These are not to be used in Florida, Kentucky, or Minnesota unless you are a person who holds a current amateur radio license issued by the Federal Communications Commission.
The required hardware is the Uniden BCD396T Bearcat Handheld Digital Scanner or PSR-800 GRE Digital trunking scanner.Open VAS is a vulnerability scanner that originally started as a fork of the Nessus project.The actual security scanner is accompanied with a daily updated feed of Network Vulnerability Tests (NVTs), over 20,000 in total (as of January 2011) HP SWFScan is a free tool developed by HP Web Security Research Group to automatically find security vulnerabilities in applications built on the Flash platform.In general terms, the following tools are mandatory to complete a penetration test with the expected results.Selecting the operating platforms to use during a penetration test is often critical to the successfully exploitation of a network and associated system. With standard command shells (such as sh, csh, and bash) and native network utilities that can be used during a penetration test (including telnet, ftp, rpcinfo, snmpwalk, host, and dig) it is the system of choice and is the underlying host system for our penetration testing tools.VMware Workstation is a fully supported commercial package, and offers encryption capabilities and snapshot capabilities that are not available in the free versions available from VMware.Without the ability to encrypt the data collected on a VM confidential information will be at risk, therefore versions that do not support encryption are not to be used.External antennas come in a variety of shapes, based upon the usage and with a variety of connectors.All external antennas must have RP-SMA connectors that are compatible with the Alfa.Useful for decompiling flash apps and finding hard-coded credentials, etc.One of the most complete penetration testing Linux distributions available.
