The Samurai Web Testing Framework is a live Linux environment that has been pre-configured to function as a web pen-testing environment. The CD contains the best of the open source and free tools that focus on testing and attacking websites.
The developers included the tools they use in their own security practice. The CD contains tools used in all four steps of a web pen-test:
- Reconnaissance – Fierce Domain Scanner and Maltego.
- Mapping – WebScarab and ratproxy.
- Discovery – w3af and burp.
- Exploitation – BeEF, AJAXShell and much more.
The project team has also created a mailing list for conversation regarding the project and its direction. The project is also open to volunteers who would like to assist us in building the project.
