Docker containerization is most powerful technologies in the current market so I came with the idea to develop Docker images for Pentesters.

Nightingale contain all the required well-known tools that will be required to the Pentesters at the time of Penetration Testing. This docker image has a base support of Debian and it is completely platform Independent.

You can either create a docker image in your local host machine by modifying according to your requirements or you can directly pull the docker image from the docker hub itself.
