Kali Metapackages

Kali Linux Metapackages

Metapackages give you the flexibility to install specific subsets of tools based on your particular needs. For instance, if you are going to conduct a wireless security assessment, you can quickly create a custom Kali ISO and include the kali-linux-wireless metapackage to only install the tools you need.

For more information, please refer to the updated and original blog posts.
