As for this system, it is not an ordinary Linux operating system for the ordinary user. This system has the same function as the famous Kali Linux, that is, it is created to secure your team from external attackers. The way to operate is to attack yourself from the penetration tools to see if your system is protected from these attacks.

Although unfortunately, many users they use it, let's say for evil and they take advantage of the power of this operating system to carry out illegal operations such as theft of keys, take down servers or sniff all the data on the network.
