Faraday v1.0.19 – Pen Test Environment (IPE)

Faraday introduces a new concept (IPE) Integrated Penetration-Test Environment a multiuser Penetration test IDE. Designed for distribution, indexation and analysis of the generated data during the process of a security audit.

The main purpose of Faraday is to re-use the available tools in the community to take advantage of them in a multiuser way.

Design for simplicity, users should feel no difference between their own terminal application and the one included in Faraday. Developed with a specialized set of functionalities that help users improve their own work. Do you remember yourself programming without an IDE? Well, Faraday does the same an IDE does for you when programming, but from the perspective of a penetration test.


Faraday v1.0.19 is ready! More documentation, a new interface and plugin fixes are some of the improvements included in this version.

At the moment, the GTK interface supports all of the most common operations in Faraday: you can create, change and delete workspaces, connect to CouchDB databases, view and change plugin settings. Of course you also have tabs and notifications, just as before (only better).

But the best part is that this new GUI uses your zsh shell, this means that you get to keep all your aliases, colors, zsh plugins and prompt. Working with Faraday GTK feels even more like working with your own terminal, plus all the added benefits you already use!


Changelog v1.0.19 (Apr 29, 2016)

  • Added GTK3 interface prototype – a brand new interface for you to enjoy!
  • Improved the documentation
  • Added plugin detection through report name – if you wish to force Faraday to process your report using a specific plugin, just rename it adding _faraday_PLUGINNAME. For example, if you wish to use the Nmap plugin for the report some_report.xml, rename it to some_report_faraday_Nmap.xml. You can find a detailed list of all available plugins in https://github.com/infobyte/faraday/wiki/Plugin-List
  • Added open services count to Hosts list in WEB UI – as some users suggested, when viewing the list of all Hosts in our WEB UI it was confusing not to know how many services each host had, so we added the amount of services to that list.
  • Improved zsh integration – this means that all plugins are now compatible with our ZSH interface, including fplugin. Read more about Faraday plugins.
  • Fixed an error in wcscan script
  • Fixed nikto plugin
  • Fixed openvas plugin
