While reading about insecure.org's Top 125 security tools, it occurred to me that I needed to set up an easily editable repository of security tools I learn about or discover while studying my security training materials or reading general security news online. I've got notes regarding many security tools scattered across multiple note-taking applications as I search for which tool suits me best. Rather than consolidate those notes to one application before I settle on the correct tool, I decided to set up a Wiki where I could put all the tools into a website. It is my hope others will benefit from and contribute to this as well.
Now I'm working on documenting and expounding on the following categories of security tools:
- Free and Open-Source Software - Free and/or Open-Source tools for security work
- Commercial software - Commercial tools used by security professionals
- Tool Types - A listing of the various tool categories I've written up so far
- Online Training sites - For video or textual instruction on security tools and techniques
- YouTube Educators - A list of YouTube creators who publish useful security content
- GitHub Resources - Listings of useful security-focused GitHub content I use peridically
- Books - Teaching security topics for those who prefer reading to video learning or want to reinforce techniques learned online
- Useful websites - Guides on using various tools and techniques listed elsewhere in this wiki
- Distributions - Linux and other operating systems designed to be used by security professionals
- Virtual Machines - A listing of virtual systems to use as attack machines, victim machines, or general security tools
- Security frameworks - Collections of tools or security concepts
- Glossary - Let's face it - CyberSecurity may have too many acronyms and internally-defined words. Here, we try to define some of them
