KaliBrowser or how to use Kali Linux from the browser


Kali Linux is one of the best known and most used hacking distributionsIt has become so popular that it even appears in the famous television series Mr. Robot. We have talked a lot about this Linux distro in this blog, from news of the new releases of the different versions, comparisons with other similar distros, etc. But now we come to tell something different, and it is the arrival of KaliBrowser, an interesting tool that will probably be very useful to you.

kalibrowser is a project recently created by hacker and security expert Jerry Gamblin. Specifically, Gamblin has created two containers to use in Docker, another fantastic project that we have also talked about and that allows us what is now so current: virtualization at the operating system level with containers. What Jerry has achieved is that we can use Kali Linux in a layer above our usual containerized isolated system.

Imagine the full potential of tools Kali Linux from a browserWell, stop imagining it, because that's what I'm talking about. Making use of Kali Docker, OpenBox and NoVNC we will be able to enjoy their functionalities thanks to the work of Jerry Gamblin.

To use them, first we download and configure the packages of the containers in both cases would be (with Docker installed):

docker run -d -t -i -p 6080:6080 jgamblin/kalibrowser

docker run -d -t -i -p 6080:6080 jgamblin/kalibrowser-top10

The next, open our favorite browser and in the address bar add our IP (replace your IP with the IP of the example) so that it opens from port 6080:

When running in a container, you will not be in danger, as if you were doing it in a normal virtual machine ...
