I have been using my Mac and BT5 in Virtual machine up until now. I recently went on a course and for some reason the Virtual Machine would not hold the static IP address what caused me many problems when trying do scans.
So I was thinking of dual booting My mac with another OS and using that as my attacking platform.
What OS do people use ? I have seen a few pen tester use ubuntu and I think this would be my logical choice since I am used to BT.
Does anyone know if you can dual boot ubuntu with a MAC OS?
Or are there other OS that I should look at ?
Also I have seen a lot of pen tester encrypt there hard drive what the best tool to do this ?
I have heard some companies use mac ports with a mac has anyone done this ? if so how easy is it to update tools ?
