How to install pentbox?

As mention earlier this framework is compatible in any system where ruby works.
So you have to install ruby in your system to use this tool.

svn co pentbox

cd pentbox

svn update



Cryptography tool:-
web application penetration tests we often discover encoded Base64 strings. Such strings can contain important information that’s why we need to have a decoder in our tool repository.

If in some situation we obtain password in hash form , then pentbox has inbuilt module that can crack hash into plain text , it can also encrypt plain text in hash form. Supported hash are MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, RIPEMD-160.


Network tools:-
Available modules are Net DoS Tester TCP port scanner ,Honeypot,Fuzzer,DNS and host gathering,MAC address geolocation . For tcp port scan you should use NMAP , because it `s best tool for port scanning.
I like DNS and host gathering modules. It `s very fast & responsive.


Web tools:-
This section contain two tools for information gathering.
HTTP directory brute-force (You can find directory of website)
HTTP common files brute-force .
