Burp Suite: 


Burp Suite is an integrated platform for performing security testing of Web applications, from initial mapping and analysis of an application’s attack surface through to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities. The free version is included with Kali and can be upgraded to the Professional version for $299 per year.



Hydra is a free brute force password cracking tool. You can attack either single or multiple user accounts and try single passwords or a list of passwords. Hydra provides IPv6 support, a graphical user interface, internationalized support (RFC 4013), HTTP proxy support, and SOCKS proxy support.

John the Ripper:

John the Ripper is another command line-based password cracker that’s noted for its speed. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords. It’s featured on Kali Linux and is also available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS.

Nmap Tool:

Nmap is a free and open source utility for network discovery and security auditing which runs on every major operating system. Nmap is a command line tool and while basic functionality is straightforward in common with many sophisticated security tools there are more command line switches than the mind can comfortably encompass.

ZAP Tool: 

The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) developed and supported by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a free, open source integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in web applications. Designed to be easy to use ZAP provides a huge range offeatures including an intercepting proxy, spiders, automated and passive scanners, and a REST API.



Sqlmap is a free open source penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers. It comes with a powerful detection engine, many niche features for the ultimate penetration tester including database fingerprinting, data fetching from a database, accessing the underlying file system, and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.



Wireshark is one of the very the best network protocol analyzers available.
