Ubuntu: Can I install Kali tools on Ubuntu?


I want to know if there is any way to install Kali tools like sqlmap, nikto, john, aircrack-ng, ... on Ubuntu 12.04?

If yes, then how should I proceed?


The only current version of Ubuntu this works for is 12.04 and the repos haven't been updated since 2013. Don't use it.

For 14.04+, please see the second answer.

Copy the following Kali repositories:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main   deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION         main   deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main   deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION main   

Replace the text YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION based on your Ubuntu version.

  • Ubuntu 12.04: precise
  • Ubuntu 12.10: quantal
  • Ubuntu 13.04: raring

Assuming that you are using Ubuntu 13.04, your repositories would be

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu raring main  deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu raring main  deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu raring main  deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu raring main   

Note: If you're an Ubuntu 14.04 user, you can use raring, as Trusty version of Kali repositories are not released

Update sources

Open your sources using the command

sudo -H gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kali-tools.list  

Now, gedit editor will open the file kali-tools.list. Paste the above code at the end of your file and Save.

Copy the PGP Key

Copy the Key below and save it as key.pgp text file in your desktop.

Add PGP Key in apt

Open terminal and type

cd Desktop  sudo apt-key add key.pgp  

If your key addition is successful, you will see Ok.

Now update your apt-get repositories using the command

sudo apt-get update  

Install Synaptic Package Manager

Use the command

sudo apt-get install synaptic  

If you already have Synaptic installed, you may skip this step.

Install Kali Tools

Now open Synaptic Package manager and click on Origin. You can see 2 Kali repositories by names

LP-PPA-wagungs-kali-linux/raring  LP-PPA-wagungs-kali-linux2/raring  

Click on the repositories and install the Tools from the list.



Ubuntu has more than that I think!

  • Cyber Sec I PPa's (Cybersec Team)

  • Black hat sec PPA's ( by D4RkNiK0l4s)


ppa:darklordpaunik8880/kalibuntu  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/kalibuntu1  


ppa:cybersec/chaos-ppa  ppa:cybersec/chaos-ppa-v1  ppa:cybersec/chaos-ppa-v2  ppa:cybersec/test  ppa:cybersec/trojan-horse  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr2  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr3  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr4  

In those PPa's are more than 500+ hacking tools available, this guy has done a very good job!!Those tools are all open source and they don't belong to any name or something else. :D Ubuntu is a great distribution and it has many,many tools and packages available via repository install them like this :


sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:cybersec/chaos-ppa  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:cybersec/chaos-ppa-v1  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:cybersec/chaos-ppa-v2  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:cybersec/test  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:cybersec/trojan-horse  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr2  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr3  sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:darklordpaunik8880/darkminttrustytahr4   


 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:darklordpaunik8880/kalibuntu                     sudo add-apt-repository ppa:darklordpaunik8880/kalibuntu1  

Then open synaptic or whatever you like to use and start installing your tools!!


first of all , i dont advice you to change anything in the sources.list , because it going to damage your ubuntu sooner or later.

but there is a good way to do so in these instructs : there is a good tool called katoolin that will save time for you.

warning: make a copy of your sources list

step 1 : copy your original sources.list

sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.original

step 2: install git

sudo apt-get install git

step 3: get katoolin tool

git clone https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin.git

step 4 : copy the tool to your usr bin directory

cp katoolin/katoolin.py /usr/bin/katoolin

step 5 : change permissions to the tool

sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/katoolin

step 6 : run the tool and extra careful to do a sources.list clean up after every time you install a tool from it or use the tool to remove the repos , and check your self manually.

sudo katoolin

cleanup after running the tool

warning : dont use apt-get upgrade after running the tool it will crush your system and gnome

first of all see the changes that happened in your sources.list

step 1 : check what has been added

cat /etc/apt/sources.list | grep "kali"

if you see a kali source , remove its deb and deb-src and the safe the file.

step 2 : check if there is any ppa from it and remove it :

sudo apt-key list | grep kali sudo apt-key del <id>

step 3 : clean what you just did :

sudo apt-get autoremove && apt-get clean

useful references :

(How can I remove gpg key that I added using apt-key add -?)
