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.


Add this to your /etc/pacman.conf file:

   Server =$arch
