Mac OS X from an IT Security Practitioners' Perspective?
I'm new to the OSX world (formerly Windows background) and am interested in understanding what is or isn't possible with OSX natively or with a virtual host.
- Is OSX or Mac hardware common in the security world?
- Would it be easier for me to run pen tests from a dedicated VM running a different OS?
I purchased the Wifi Pineapple and notice that there are no instructions for OSX and am curious if this is a relevant hardware or software platform to initiate pen tests from.
