How to Install BlackArch Tools on Arch Linux
Turn your regular Arch Linux installation into a pentesting lab by adding the BlackArch repository and installing powerful security tools.
BlackArch is a security-focused Arch Linux-based distribution that, much like its Debian-based counterparts Kali Linux and Parrot OS, provides a plethora of security tools and pentesting utilities.
If you're using vanilla Arch Linux and want to perform security testing, you'll be disappointed to find that the vanilla Arch repositories do not host any pentesting tools. Fret not though, for it's quite easy to add the BlackArch repository to your Arch system and gain access to the massive arsenal of pentesting tools it hosts.
Let's look at the steps to add the BlackArch repository to your Arch-based system and install pentesting tools.
