                                    Introduction

                                    APT2 stands for Automated Penetration Testing Toolkit.

                                    APT2 performs a scan with Nmap or can import the results of a scan from Nexpose or Nessus. The processed results will be used in the second phase. This phase launches exploit and enumeration modules. It helps pentesters to automate assessments and tasks.
