Password Cracking, Forensics and Honey Pots. Katana comes with over 100
portable Windows applications, such as Wireshark, HiJackThis, Unstoppable
Copier, Firefox, and OllyDBG.  It also includes the following distributions:

With options to add distros like the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows, Backtrack 3,
Trinity Rescue Disk, Puppy Linux and Kon-Boot.

Katana is highly customizable.  You can modify Katana by adding or removing
distributions and portable apps with ease.  You can also load your personal
scripts and documents to use with the provided tools.
