Created by the Kali Linux development team, this event will consist of two, 90 minute, back-to-back workshops where we will take you on a unique journey through Kali Linux and provide rare insights into the powerful features available in our advanced penetration-testing platform. The Kali Dojo will include hands on instructions for creating your own custom Kali Linux ISOs and creating a bootable Kali Linux live USB install – transforming it into an effective hardware backdoor, or a secure encrypted pentesting platform. If you’ve ever wished for proficiency with Kali Linux, these workshops are for you.

Workshop #1: Rolling Your Own - Generating Custom Kali Linux ISOs

One of the most powerful features of Kali Linux is the ability to create your own flavors of the distribution containing customized tools, desktop managers, and services. This workshop will show you how to create your own personalized Kali Linux ISO, customizing virtually every aspect using the live-build utility and making efficient use of the various meta-packages available in Kali. Ever wanted to create a non-root, KDE version of Kali which would self-install? This workshop is for you. At the end of this workshop attendees will understand and independently build complex Kali images, such as the Kali Linux ISO of Doom.

Workshop #2: Kali Linux on USB - Encryption, Persistence and multiple stores

The Kali Live hybrid ISO allows for directly booting via USB, making it a perfect portable tool. However, Kali Linux live USB installs are more than meets the eye - they also support encrypted storages with multiple persistent stores. Once you've made your custom Kali ISO, learn how to make the perfect, encrypted USB environment which supports multiple disk profiles. Want to learn how to make a Kali Linux Live USB with multiple encrypted persistence stores which support LUKS Nuke? This workshop is for you. Please be sure to bring a bootable USB stick with you!


For both workshops, we require attendees to bring a laptop with a *fully updated*, 64bit Kali Linux Rolling installation. In addition, you *must have a wired networking option*, so bring a USB network adapter if you need one. Both workshops will be hands-on, allowing you to work through the examples using the system you bring. Space in each session is limited, seating on a first-come, first-served basis.

About the instructor

Mati Aharoni is the founder and a core developer of the Kali Linux project, and plays the role of a Kali developer at Offensive Security. For the past several years, Mati has been developing a curriculum designed for users who wish to make the most out of the Kali Linux operating system. By bringing together several advanced features in the Kali OS and projecting them into useful and practical scenario based exercises, the Kali Linux workshop was born. The workshop is designed to be a fast-paced, crash course to some of the most advanced features in the distribution, giving attendees the ability and freedom to bend Kali Linux to fit their needs.

Dates and duration

The workshop will be held on October 26th and repeated the 27th during Ekoparty as a side activity
