live-build is a set of scripts to build Debian Live system images. The idea behind live-build is a framework that uses a configuration directory to completely automate and customize all aspects of building a Live image. An introduction to live-build can be found in the live-build(7) manpage.

A Debian Live system is a Debian operating system that does not require a classical installer to use it. It comes on various media, including CD-ROM, USB sticks, or via netboot.

Debian Live also supports the creation of both install and hybrid install/live images; the latter giving the option at boot to enter the live system or install to disk.
