The highly anticipated Parrot Security OS 3.0 release dubbed as Lithium arrived on June 21, 2016. It is a huge update to previous versions of the Debian-based cloud-friendly operating system powered by GNU/Linux and Open Source technologies.
Keeping security auditing in mind, Parrot Security OS 3.0 has been designed with penetration testing. It’s an OS built for security professionals to use in ethical hacking, reverse engineering, computer forensic, cloud pentesting, privacy, cryptography and more.
In total, there are six editions of Parrot Security OS 3.0 with each having a different set of hacking tools or a different desktop environment. Each edition is designed for a specific target audience, featuring more or less security-oriented tools.
The developer team at Frozenbox Network has also prepared binary images to help you with installation on various embedded and IoT (Internet of Things) devices. There are 32-bit, 64-bit, and ARMhf (ARM Hard Float) images for Raspberry Pi and Cubieboard 4 (CC-A80) SBCs.
These ARMhf binary images of Parrot Security OS 3.0 are now available for download, which allows the users to install the ethical hacking distro on the single-board computer devices mentioned above.
In addition, you can also download ARMhf rootfs and ARMhf generic rootfs binary images for other IoT devices. The OS is based on Debian GNU/Linux 8 “Jessie” and ships with a custom hardened Linux 4.5 kernel.
The desktop environment should be MATE. You will be able to find some of the most famous digital forensic tools and frameworks, cryptography and programming utilities, dozens of anonymity, and many other goodies for your penetration testing needs.
The Parrot Security OS 3.0 Full, Lite, Cloud, Parrot Libre, Parrot LXDE, and Parrot Studio editions are available for download from the official website of the ethical hacking GNU/Linux operating system.
