    Instead of a Keystroke logger, setup a proxy for your pen-test systems to use
    on their outbound connection to the target. Then have the proxy log everything
    and although you may not have all the mouse clicks and commands typed, you
    will have a log of the traffic to and from the target network. To me that is infinitely
    more valuable. But that's just me.
    Good Luck,

    I'm wondering if anyone has either a kernel level keystroke logger for the
    Linux 2.6, or a userspace keystroke logger for Linux. As part of our
    penetration testing, we are required to give the client a log of all
    actions performed - so this would be a good way of logging all linux
    commands. Also - if you know of the same sort of tool for windows - that
    would also be appreciated.
