Nmapper (aka Network Mapper) is a security scanner originally written by Gordon Lyon used to discover hosts and services on a computer network, thus creating a “map” of the network. To accomplish its goal, Nmapper sends specially crafted packets to the target host and then analyses the responses. Anti-Android Network Toolkit (aka zANTI) is a comprehensive network diagnostics toolkit that enables complex audits and penetration tests at the push of a button. It provides cloud-based reporting that walks you through simple guidelines to ensure network safety. SSHDroid finally is an SSH server implementation for Android. This application will let you connect to your device from a PC and execute commands (like “terminal” and “adb shell”) or edit files (through SFTP, WinSCP, Cyberduck, etc).

The goal of this project is to aid analysts and reverse engineers to visualize compiled Android packages and their corresponding DEX code. DroidBox finally is developed to offer dynamic analysis of Android applications.

From Burp Suite to Shark for Root

Burp Suite is an integrated platform for performing security testing of web applications. Its various tools work seamlessly together to support the entire testing process, from initial mapping and analysis of an application’s attack surface, through to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities.
