Kali Linux is a Debian-based distribution with a collection of security and forensics tools. The project has published a new release, Kali Linux 2021.3, which introduces changes to the OpenSSL software. “OpenSSL – Wide compatibility by default – Keep reading for what that means. New Kali-Tools site – Following the footsteps of Kali-Docs, Kali-Tools has had a complete refresh.
Better VM support in the Live image session – Copy & paste and drag & drop from your machine into a Kali VM by default. New tools – From adversary emulation, to subdomain takeover to Wi-Fi attacks. Kali NetHunter smartwatch – first of its kind, for TicHunter Pro. KDE 5.21 – Plasma desktop received a version bump. OpenSSL: wide compatibility by default. Going forwards from Kali Linux 2021.3, OpenSSL has now been configured for wider compatibility to allow Kali to talk to as many services as possible. This means that legacy protocols (such as TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1) and older ciphers are enabled by default.”
