    WarBerryPi

    Introduction

    WarBerryPi is a toolkit to provide a hardware implant during Physical penetration testing or red teaming. The primary goal of the tool is to obtain as much information as possible, in a short period of time. The secondary goal is to be stealthy to avoid detection. As the name implies, the tool can be used on a small device like a RaspberryPi.

    Another use-case of WarBerryPi is to be an entry point to the network. In that case, a 3G connection is suggested, to avoid the outgoing network filtering (egress rules).

    Project details

    WarBerryPi is written in Python.

    Strengths and weaknesses

    • + More than 2000 GitHub stars
    • + The source code of this software is available
    • - Minimal or no documentation available
    • - No releases on GitHub available

    Typical usage

    • Information gathering
    • Information snooping
    • Penetration testing
    • Red teaming

    Expliot

    Introduction

    Expliot is a framework to perform security testing and exploitation of IoT infrastructure and IoT devices. It comes with a set of tests in the form of plugins. The framework can be extended by creating custom plugins. As you may expect from a tool like Expliot, the typical communication protocols and message buses are supported. Examples include CANBus, BLE, MQTT, CoAP. In other words, enough acronyms for those familiar with the technology.

    Project details

    Expliot is written in Python.

    Strengths and weaknesses

    • + The source code of this software is available

      Typical usage

      • Hardware security
      • IoT security testing
      • Security assessment
