What is VAST?
VIPER Assessment Security Tools Linux security distribution

VAST is a Linux-based security distribution specifically designed for pentesting VoIP and UC networks. It enables security professionals and UC administrators to rapidly perform VoIP security assessments and enumerate vulnerabilities in IP Phones or IP PBX servers in a lab environment. With VAST, a security consultant has every tool necessary to carry out a successful onsite or remote penetration test or vulnerability assessment against a UC network. VAST is built on Mint Linux 13 and includes all of the open source VIPER Lab tools, in addition to some other network pentest tools.

VAST can be downloaded in .ISO format and VMWare guest image.
