Faraday: Collaborative Penetration Test Platform

Faraday introduces a new concept – IPE (Integrated Penetration-Test Environment) a multiuser Penetration test IDE. Designed for distributing, indexing, and analyzing the data generated during a security audit.

Made for true pentesters!

Faraday was made to let you take advantage of the available tools in the community in a truly multiuser way.

Faraday crunches the data you load into different visualizations that are useful to managers and pentesters alike.

Designed for simplicity, users should notice no difference between their own terminal application and the one included in Faraday. Developed with a specialized set of functionalities, users improve their own work. Do you remember the last time you programmed without an IDE? What IDEs are to programming, Faraday is to pentesting.

# first add your user to the faraday group
$ faraday-manage initdb

This will give you a randomly generated password to log into the web UI. Now you can start the server with:

$ sudo systemctl start faraday-server

In your browser, now you can go to localhost:5985 and login with “faraday” as username, and the password generated in the initdb step.
