Based on the following recent blog article by Raphaël Hertzog (which I
know about because I am subscribed to his mailing list), it does
appear that Kali Linux is a Debian derivative.  (Indeed, in this
article, he makes a point of it being a "proper Debian derivative".)


I note that his blog post points to the official Kali Linux website, at


I see there's a bunch of potentially useful things / links there, such
as "Downloads", "Documentation", "Community" (which also mentions
forums and bug reports), etc.  Perhaps that could be of some use in
finding the file(s) you need?

Hope this is of some use, interest.  Thanks for your time.  Be well.
