BlackArch is an unofficial project that aims to enable both security professionals and newcomers to learn and use security and hacking tools within Arch Linux.

The toolset is distributed as an Arch Linux unofficial user repository so you can install BlackArch Linux on top of an existing Arch Linux installation.


To install BlackArch, add this to your /etc/pacman.conf file:

   SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
   Server =$arch

and run

   # pacman -Syu

You may now install tools from the BlackArch repository. To list all of the available tools, run

   $ pacman -Sl blackarch

To install all of the tools, run

   # pacman -S blackarch

To install a category of tools, run

   # pacman -S blackarch-<category>

To see the BlackArch categories, run

   $ pacman -Sg | grep blackarch
