How to install Kali on Rasperry Pi 3

You can use a tool like ApplePiBaker for Mac to load your Kali image onto your SD card. If you use Windows, you can use Win32 Disk Imager to put your image on the card.

When finished, your SD card is ready to go! Insert the SD card into your Pi, connect it to HDMI, and attach your USB keyboard. Plug in the power source to boot into Kali Linux for the first time. To get to the desktop, your default login is “root” with “toor” being the password.
