Kali-on-GCP updated for Kali 2021.2

Posted August 17, 2021 | View revision history

Not especially exciting, but I just updated my Kali on GCP repo so that it builds 2021.2. This time around, I didn’t have to downgrade the openssl packages in order to get gcp-ssh-in-the-browser to work. Maybe that’s because the openssl package that 2021.2 currently uses is available for Debian 10 (although a lower version is installed by default). Regardless, the only changes I had to make were some grub-file edits, and installing the google gcp packages.

I dropped packer files for previous Kali builds from the repo, since they no longer successfully complete the install process, due to how the kali rolling apt package structure works.
