    If you are interested in computer security, you have probably used tools or any ethical hacking distribution that allow us to carry out all kinds of security practices. One of the best known and most widely used ethical hacking distros in this field is Kali LinuxThis distro has a wide variety of applications installed and configured in such a way that we can find everything we need.

    One of the limitations of Kali Linux given its nature is that it involves relying on a computer dedicated to this distro, or running it in a virtual machine. If we are users of any other Linux distribution, or we want to turn our Android smartphone into a complete Swiss army knife of ethical hacking, then we should definitely give it a try. Tool-X.

    Tool-X is a complete script with more than 250 toolsalready installed by default in Kali Linux designed to port to other Linux-based systems, be it a Debian-based distro, such as Ubuntu, or Android

    The Tool-X script has been designed to allow us to install these tools on Android devices, whether we have root permissions or not. To do this, the only thing we will need, in addition to the smartphone, is to install a terminal application on the device, as is the case of Termux, free app that can be downloaded from the Play Store.


    If we don't like this terminal, this script has also been designed to work with GNURoot DebianThis app can also be downloaded for free from the Android Play Store.
