Kautilya – Human Interface Device Hacking Toolkit


Kautilya is a human interface device hacking toolkit which provides various payloads for HIDs which may help with breaking into a computer during penetration tests.

Kautilya – Human Interface Device Hacking Toolkit

The Windows payloads and modules are written mostly in powershell (in combination with native commands) and are tested on Windows 7 and Windows 8. In principal Kautilya should work with any HID capable of acting as a keyboard. Kautilya has been tested on Teensy++ 2.0 and Teensy 3.0 from pjrc.com.
