Filename: katana-v3.0-beta-1.zip

If it ever gets uploaded, this is what you should be looking for. As of right now, I don't see any torrents for this. I say give it a month or so.

Katana 3 BETA

You need both parts for it to work!

First up, i have only seeded and started a torrent a few time, so please bear with me.

Seed link for File 1: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:D129B8DC7AAF6B9194DEE931FCAD37B444E07C83&dn=katana-v3.0-beta-1.zip&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce

Seed link for File 2: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:C18BA91C9095ED3649790A8109807DB8DD4987C1&dn=katana-v3.0-beta-2.zip&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce


Download the .torrent files from my dropbox


The link below has the hashes for the files.


If you can read the md5 hashes off of the Pic you can make sure no one has changed the files.


The Read Me File Posted Down Below

Katana v3.0 Beta (Unsheathed)


Requires USB flash drive (or other disk) of size 8GB or larger formatted FAT32.

NOTE: Some tools included in Katana get flagged as "hacker tools" by many

Anti-Virus programs. Make sure to turn off all virus scanner before install.

1. Download the Katana ZIP files to the local disk.

2. Extract the content of the Katana ZIP files onto the USB flash drive;

example "E:\" for Windows OR "/mount/sdb1" for Linux. Make sure NOT to create a

subdirectory when extracting the ZIPs content. Extract all files into the root

of the flash drive. If prompted, use the "write into" option to copy

files into already existing directories. Katana is broken into 2 files because

of its size. Extract both files to the directory in the same manner. There are

many files, so this may take some time. When done, you should see about a dozen

files in the root of the flash drive.

3. Change directory to the freshly copied "boot" directory on the USB device.

(Make sure you're in the "boot" directory on the USB device and NOT your local

disk! )

4. Run the following with Administrative privileges. For Linux/OSX run

./boostinst.sh, for Windows run ./boostinst.bat

5. Make sure the computer BIOS allows USB boot. Boot from flash drive. All Done!

Was it on the defcon DVD provided to all attendies?

No, you had to go by hackers for charity both, and pick it up via a write blocked sd card reader.


When I saw r0win post on twitter that you can get it, i dropped the talk i was listening to and got a copy. I was told I was the first one to get it. When I unzipped it, I was using my Netbook.... it took 6 hours to unzip. built it and then was off and running!

Currently downloading (and have been for a couple of days). Slow, but that's to be expected with so few peers. Will report back when it's done.

Thanks, and at night, I am also seeding it off of my phone to, to help get it out there!

I have finally reached 100 percent and would like to say thank you very much.

md5 sums match and files have been unzipped to my usb stick.

Everything looks to be working great!!

Thanks Again!!

Great to hear! No Problem!

Got to 100% this morning. I have been seeding, as I plan to continue for a few days.

I normally don't seed, but I appreciate the generosity you've shown by posting it.

Awesome! I thank you for seeding! I'll keep it up and seeding as well. No Problem, have fun with it and make sure to tell .ronin, thanks for revamping it!
