Typhon OS

Typhon OS is an operating system rebuilt from the popular debian distro Ubuntu, it contains several tools for penetration testing specifically SIGINT this tools can be used for the following:

GSM research/security/penetration testing > this includes anything using GSM as a module of communication e.g Mobile Phones/ Mobile Networks/ GSM Modems / ATMs and other IOT
Satellite Communication/ Security/ Research
Radio (as long as you have the right SDR, multiple tools on typhonOS exist to allow use of the SDRs, such as BladeRF, HackRF, OsmocomBB, RTL-SDR etc) radio examples include AM/FM radio, Police Radio/Walkie Talkies etc.

TyphonOS is not the most graphical OS created as most of the applications are not GUI oriented, however, most tools have been documented on Google and I find no reason to reinvent the wheel with information, I will however point paths to the tools.

Depending on your OS version 1&2 (currently exist)

/RF or /typhon would be the location to all tools installed

In this folders you will find the all the tools necessary.
On live environments, the default username would either be syn and password typhon, or vx and password vx , depending on the version you have.

Using the OS on a VM would require a tier 1 VM , such as VMware family: player,fusion, workstation as they integrate best with the USB-Serial connections.

Have fun, for educational purposes only.
