FireCAT – Firefox Catalog of Auditing Tools

Keep on Guard!

After the web 2.0 hacking with firefox and its plugins article I wrote some months ago, recently I found a new way to transform firefox in the ultimate pen-testing tool… actually it has been lying in my inbox for days…

…new Firefox Framework Map collection of the most useful security oriented extensions. We called the framework FireCAT. It stands for FireFox Catalog of Auditing Toolbox.

It is based upon a paper we wrote some weeks before (Turning firefox to an ethical hacking platform) and downloaded more than 25 000 times. We also thank all folks that encouraged us and sent their suggestions and ideas to make this project a reality.

This initial release is presented as a mindmap and we are open to all your suggestions to make it a really good framework for all the community of security auditors and ethical hackers.

this is the mail I got from the securityfocus pen-testing mailinglist…

    Wow the updated version that you can open in a mind map app is exhaustively comprehensive. Nice catch.

    Hey, while following the update links I saw that they were distributing FireCAT with a liveDVD pentesting distro from knowledge cave called kcpentrix 2.0 and really only just pushes over the CD limit at around 900mb. Was wondering what you thought of it? Like how does it stack up versus BackTrack 2.0?

    I am downloading it right now so all I can tell is that it is SLAX and it has about 240 or so pen testing tools exploits etc etc. So its behind on the prolific 300+ that BackTrack has. Also, its a really large iso compared to BackTrack 2.0 which was fit on a CD.

    What do you think?

    well i have to tell you that I am not a No. 1 FAN of liveCD/DVD’s…. but if I really have to make a choice then I’m following the crowd… so it’s BackTrack… the preferred liveCD on the pen-testing mailing list at SecurityFocus…
