Arch-Linux, ArchAssault, ArchStrike

Designed from scratch as a security layer to Arch Linux, the ArchAssault project provides security researchers and hackers with one of the most powerful open source and totally free Linux kernel-based operating systems for penetration testing and security auditing operations.
