Running Kali Linux with EVE-NG

Published by Keyboard Banger on


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.
