Imunity releases Silica, handheld "Pen" tester

16 08 2006

Wow, a portable penetration tester the size of a PDA. It does not have a price listed on their site yet, but the capabilities are nice.

From their site:

Immunity SILICA is a hand-held penetration testing product that leverages Immunity CANVAS to provide a unique testing tool for networks. Currently it supports 802.11 (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth wireless connections or optionally Ethernet via USB. Its slim, PDA-like profile allows the penetration tester to perform testing while appearing to perform an innocuous behavior.

Example Use Cases:

  • Tell SILICA to scan every machine on every wireless network for file shares and download anything of interest to the SILICA device. Then just put it in your suit pocket and walk through your target’s office space.
  • Tell SILICA to actively penetrate any machines it can target (with any of Immunity CANVAS’s exploits) and have all successfully penetrated machines connect via HTTP/DNS to an external listening post running Immunity CANVAS Professional.
  • Mail SILICA to your target’s CEO, then let it turn on and hack anything it can as it’s sitting on their desk.
  • Have SILICA conduct MITM attacks against people on a wireless network.
  • They also just recently released a new verion of CANVAS Professional – “an automated exploitation system, and a comprehensive, reliable exploit development framework to penetration testers and security professionals worldwide.” They’re up to 6.12 at the time of this post.

    CANVAS Professional.
