Creation of the Linux Virtual MachineΒΆ

Once you have properly installed your virtualization software, you can create all the virtual machines you need.

Please refer to the official documentation, as the use and configuration of virtualization software is beyond the scope of this guide.


Hints and considerations on how to design and create your virtualized environment can be found in the Sandboxing chapter.


Cuckoo Sandbox can work with any Linux distribution. For analysis purposes, use Ubuntu Linux 12.04.05.

Cuckoo doesn’t require any specific configuration to create the virtual machine. Choose the options that best fit your needs.
