There are two ways to run Kali Linux on EVE-NG:
- running a liveCD version
- installing the full image of Kali
I’ve tried both. The second option described in this post ran a couple of times then stopped. So I thought of running a VM version of Kali, which was the most stable option in my lab.
Running Kali as a standalone VM and networking it with EVE-ng was not difficult. The VM image is already available free to download here. I added the VM as a template and connected it in Bridged mode with a “network” object in EVE-ng
The Kali host will be useful for Cisco security lab setups.
To change the hostname of the Kali instance, check this nice post.
