This article showcases technology available for ethical hacking, and related activities, on Gentoo-based systems. If the software package is not available in Gentoo, then it will likely be available via the Pentoo ebuild repository. If it's not available in Pentoo, then I'll probably try to write an ebuild for it...

Risk measurement metrics

Measure risk with timers and updates... if a software project has not been updated in N number of days, increase the risk rating. If the software has an existing CVE for the targeted version, increase risk rating. If the image is 'stale', increase risk rating. Be dynamic.
