Tool and Usage
Why this tool?
The LaZagne tool can be a good addition to the toolkit of pentesters or forensic specialists to recover sensitive details from systems. For a pentester, this typically means that limited access has been gained. By trying to find passwords from local applications, the step to other applications or privilege level might be possible. For example, a password that is shared among multiple services, or even finding an administrator password.
How it works
The tool uses several techniques to obtain the passwords. One of these techniques is by directly retrieving it from a file, which can be useful for applications that store secrets as plaintext. Other methods include the retrieval via an API, database, or by using a custom algorithm.
Usage and audience
LaZagne is commonly used for data extraction, information gathering, password discovery, or password recovery. Target users for this tool are pentesters, security professionals, and system administrators.
