What is up with Persistence feature on Kali Linux?????


Tried 1.0.9,1.0.8 ISO and none of them would boot up correctly only 1.0.7. So I put persistence along with Luks encryption along with nuke file option on the Live USB. Problem is what is persistence truely suppose to give me? I boot up and any files in my 13gb partitioned persistence file are saved after I restart but none of my software removals or add on are after restart. Is this how its suppose to be? What is splash screen with pae persistence encrypted persistence do anyways?? Either one I choose same kali shows up.


Having a lot of weird problems sometimes I cannot use internet though I am connected, other times I am prompted for network password repeatably. Can clarify???

From the Kali Linux page describing it, is the quote below. That's pretty standard for persistence with any Linux. Is the second option on that page what you have done?

it is NOT a kali issue

persistence is a GOOD idea for a LIVE !!!!!! CD !!!!! image on a usb thumb drive

also you SHOULD!!!! use FULL DRIVE ENCRYPTION!!!!!
do you really want a LEO to have FULL access to what you are using kali for ?
as in
using kali for it's intended purpose is NOT something you want LEO's to have access to

Good idea, good suggestion, but I am trying to learn pen testing legitimately. Having weird problem on Kali after I boot in I can connect to my WiFi network but I cannot connect to the internet. After boot up I go to iceweasel and then URL and can use internet for 3-4 seconds but after that I get connection timed out error and tab turns to "connecting...".I restart my wifi on off and then am able to connect to internet for 2-3 seconds. Need advice on how to turn promiscuous mode on. Am not using any Virtual box. Here are diagnostics.

root@kali:~# airmon-ng

root@kali:~# aircrack-ng

Aircrack-ng 1.2 beta3 - (C) 2006-2013 Thomas d'Otreppe

usage: aircrack-ng [options] <.cap / .ivs file(s)>

Common options:

-a <amode> : force attack mode (1/WEP, 2/WPA-PSK)
-e <essid> : target selection: network identifier
-b <bssid> : target selection: access point's MAC
-p <nbcpu> : # of CPU to use (default: all CPUs)
-q : enable quiet mode (no status output)
-C <macs> : merge the given APs to a virtual one
-l <file> : write key to file

Static WEP cracking options:

-c : search alpha-numeric characters only
-t : search binary coded decimal chr only
-h : search the numeric key for Fritz!BOX
-d <mask> : use masking of the key (A1:XX:CF:YY)
-m <maddr> : MAC address to filter usable packets
-n <nbits> : WEP key length : 64/128/152/256/512
-i <index> : WEP key index (1 to 4), default: any
-f <fudge> : bruteforce fudge factor, default: 2
-k <korek> : disable one attack method (1 to 17)
-x or -x0 : disable bruteforce for last keybytes
-x1 : last keybyte bruteforcing (default)
-x2 : enable last 2 keybytes bruteforcing
-X : disable bruteforce multithreading
-y : experimental single bruteforce mode
-K : use only old KoreK attacks (pre-PTW)
-s : show the key in ASCII while cracking
-M <num> : specify maximum number of IVs to use
-D : WEP decloak, skips broken keystreams
-P <num> : PTW debug: 1: disable Klein, 2: PTW

re read the kali documents !!!!
one of the sections is about INSTALLING to a usb drive and NOT USING IT AS A LIVE IMAGE!!!

then you will not need to worry about NEEDING !!!! persistence

as to no wireless
read the documentation !!!
NETWORKING IS TURNED OFF by default !!!
