Hello experts,

I'm looking for a list of ethical hacking tools.  I'm primarly interested in Data Penetration Tools, but would also like to look at other types.

Can I get some recommendations of tools I should look at?

I need to present a list for work in a couple days.

Thanks,
Brandon

The most used would probably be Metasploit, see here: http://www.metasploit.com/

Check out Backtrack, Nikto, Nessus, Nexpose, Paros, ike, SARA, burp, skipfish, metasploit, kali, openvas, nmap, Google Gruyere ..etc, Kali Linux is by far the best, it's an excellent linux distro with an excellent source of testing tools

To have a full scope of security assessment, you need to have experience with both the network and application side.
