What is the best list of security tools at the moment?

The list by Fyodor of course.

If you are running debian, you can install most of the useful tools in debian with this command:

apt-get install netcat ethereal nessus hping2 ettercap john nikto smb-nat airsnort kismet nbtscan gnupg ngrep nemesis lsof hunt stunnel paketto fragroute tethereal

Also check these packages out: fwbuilder httptunnel httpush lsof strace ltrace rsync

With those tools, your life will be much easier.
