Black Hat USA 2011: ToolsTube with Maximiliano ‘Maxi’ Soler on FireCAT v2.0

Basing us on the grateful browser Firefox and its personalization capabilities, we have created FireCAT: Firefox Catalog of Auditing exTensions.

FireCAT allows us to turn the browser to a powerful auditing weapon using only the appropriate extensions and great imagination.

Step to step will be explained, how is possible to have through Firefox a wide and varied utilities available list, to put in action!

Trivia: The idea behind FireCAT came during a pentest. When I had challenged to performed it without any tool. So, Firefox along with extensions being with a great help.

What is FireCAT?

FireCAT (Firefox Catalog of Auditing exTension) is a mindmap collection of the most efficient and useful Firefox extensions oriented application security auditing and assessment. FireCAT is not a replacement of other security utilities and software as well as fuzzers, proxies and application vulnerabilities scanners.
