LFI Freak is a tool to help finding and exploiting local file inclusions (LFI). It has a particular focus on using PHP Input, PHP Filter, and Data URI methods.
LFI Suite is a security tool to automate the scanning and exploitation of Local File Inclusion vulnerabilities. It uses a wide range of attack methods to achieve this goal. This tool would be useful to penetration testers for security assignments.
LIEF is a library to analyze executable formats like ELF, MachO, and PE. It can be used during reverse engineering, binary analysis, and malware research.
Linux Malware Detect (LMD) is a malware scanner for systems running Linux. The open source software project is released with the GPLv2 license.
LPFW (LeoPard FloWer)
LUNAR is a security scanner that runs on a Linux system or other flavors of Unix. It provides insights on what can be done to harden the system.
The LaZagne project is an open source tool to retrieve passwords stored on a local system. It uses different techniques to obtain passwords from well-known applications.
Lemur manages TLS certificate creation and the underlying process that is required. It acts as a broker between a certificate authority (CA) and the environment
Leviathan is a security tool to provide a wide range of services including service discovery, brute force, SQL injection detection, and exploit capabilities.
