The USB installation that you want is with "persistent memory". I tried it with Backtrack 3 but was not successful. The site below explains it. If you still have problems the Backtrack developers chat on Freenode (IRC). There are some Backtrack channels there. Search netsplit.de for the exact names.

May I ask what other pen testing software do you use? Isn't some pen testing done from inside the network, such as permissions elevation? Is the CEH 'certified ethical hacking' certification worth having? What are 3 of your most use programs on Backtrack?

When you reboot, all existing data in system memory (RAM) is purged so it no longer exists.

But USB memory is non-volatile memory , So how does tor and privoxy installation just vanishes when installer is prompted that about 3 to 4 MB space will be taken on USB.

Backtrack already uses tor, so I don't see why you need to install it. backtrack is all about using the live medium and not saving anything, this could be related to the reason you can't save anything.

Tor is not present in BACKTRACK 5 like it was in the older versions of Backtrack

You need to install it in order to use it.
One can check whether tor is running or not by simply going to whatismyip.com

I installed Kali as a VM. Nothing is lost on reboot.

Congrats! But I need pen-test to be on my USB; reasons:

1) Easy to carry

2) Just BOOT & use anywhere (especially, when you don't want to bother your clients with installation or connecting your laptop to their network).

3) TOR needs to be used in order to check IDS or other software logs for better analysis (when attacker is behind proxy).

TOR is not present in KALI.You need to install it, better to run TOR on VM and let everthing pass through it (forming bridge).

So, please can someone provide me a concrete solution to my problem.?

Why wouldn't your clients want you to connect your laptop to their network? That doesn't make sense.

Well, I never said that I am not allowed to do so, but I said, "I don't want to bother them".

Reasons:

1) You need to configure your laptop and require username & password from network administrator.

2) There are some rules to follow when a new machine joins a network for eg. particular security settings must be present, antivirus, windows should be updated etc.

3) Things get more complicated in a large and hybrid type of network when you need to join and test different nodes.

If one is lucky enough to work in such environments then he must be aware of the time that is wasted in such tasks and would be sensible enough to concentrate on his main objective rather than wasting his time in some unproductive work.

Similarly a a good tech needs to provide the solution to the problem rather than deviating from the problem or escaping the question by putting some irrelevant answer.

That was something silly to miss.

Other tools:
1) Node Zero (for IP v6)
2) Samurai Web Testing Framework.

Various other tools like the free ones at http://www.cylance.com/labs/tools.s...
etc.

First Step: Some good undergraduate program (like Bachelor Degree) with knowledge of JavaScript,Java,PHP,Python,C#,C++,C,Objective-C,Perl,ASP,Assembly,Visual Basic,DBMS etc.

Step 2:All the certifications are good if and only if one has at-least 6 years of experience as system/network administrator (preferably in different types of network) and some advance networking certification first like CNE etc.

Step 3:Then choosing his favorite area (llinux/windows/solaris) to become network manager and gradually shifting to security by undergoing relevant security courses (for eg. Checkpoint, CISSP,CEH etc).


In the field of security the best advice is first to form a knowledge base and get some experience then keep up to date with latest security certification in your area of expertise (as certifications keep changing on with the change in technology).
