Don't forget to check those MD5 sums!! Nobody likes a bad download.

NOTE: For both VMware and Virtual Box, we are providing the hard drive file. This will allow you to configure the virtual machine appropriately for your hardware and software (Virtual Box, VMware Player/Server/ESX...). Parallels users should download the VMware install as Parallels will import VMware disks. We are in the process of documenting the setup procedures for each of these if you are not familiar with creating/configuring a new virtual machine.

Here's another presentation I gave on Open Source Tools at the local ISSA chapter. I have a few slides on the OWASP Live CD as well.

also, I created a page covering all the tools I mentioned in the slides with links, descriptions, etc. Open Source Tools Supplement
