Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing. Kali Linux can run natively when installed on a computer’s hard disk, can be booted from a live CD or live USB, or it can run as KVM virtual machine or OpenStack instance using qcow2 image.
We have generated Kali Linux OpenStack / KVM 64bit qcow2 ready to use image based on Kali Linux ISO with pre-installed cloud-init package.

- regular user (login/pass): debian/naibed (access: SSH, local)
- super-user (login/pass): root/toor (access: local)
- os-release: 2016.1
- GUI: Xfce
- Metapackages installed: kali-linux-full
- Additional packages: cloud-init (requires metadata services enabled in OpenStack)
Note: if you encounter metadata services error during Instance boot, that means metadata services are not working properly in your OpenStack Cloud, enable/fix metadata services in OpenStack or wait few minutes until the Instance boots and then disable or uninstall cloud-init package, if you don’t need it. If you want to launch the image on KVM, you should also uninstall cloud-init.
