Security researchers have launched an integrated platform to assist with multi-user penetration testing.
The beta version of the open source Faraday Penetration Test integrated development environment worked with more than 40 security tools including Metasploit, Medusa and Nmap.
"Our idea was to build a tool that helps from the perspective of a pentester without changing the way you work, adding the support for multi user collaboration on security testing projects," Amato said.
"[It was] developed with a specialised set of [functionality] that help users improve their own work adding collaborative data sharing, indexation and analysis of the generated knowledge during the engagement of a security audit.
"We built a plugin system where all the I/O (input/output) from the terminal gets interpreted [and] if we have a plugin for the command, the output is processed and added to a knowledge base in a transparent way."
The platform was released as a free community version and a paid professional offering that included reporting and visualisation. A donation was made to one of a list of developers of open source security tools as part of the license.
