How it works

FireAway uses a client-server connection. Typically the FireAway server is started on the outside of the firewall, like a system on the internet. The client tool then tries to connect outside (egress) to this server. By using several methods of obfuscation, it will try to deliver traffic to the server listening on the outside.

Usage and audience

FireAway is commonly used for bypassing firewall rules, firewall auditing, network traffic filtering, or penetration testing. Target users for this tool are network administrators, pentesters, and security professionals.
