Tsunami - A General Purpose Network Security Scanner With An Extensible Plugin System For Detecting High Severity Vulnerabilities With High Confidence

 

Tsunami is a general-purpose network security scanner with an extensible plugin system for detecting high severity vulnerabilities with high confidence.

To learn more about Tsunami, visit our documentations.
Tsunami relies heavily on its plugin system to provide basic scanning capabilities. All publicly available Tsunami plugins are hosted in a separate google/tsunami-security-scanner-plugins repository.

Current Status

  • Currently Tsunami is in ‘pre-alpha’ release for developer preview.
  • Tsunami project is currently under active development. Do expect major API changes in the future.

Quick Start
To quickly get started with Tsunami scans,

  1. install the following required dependencies:
    nmap >= 7.80
    ncrack >= 0.7
  2. start a vulnerable application that can be identified by Tsunami, e.g. an unauthenticated Jupyter Notebook server. The easiest way is to use a docker image:
    docker run --name unauthenticated-jupyter-notebook -p 8888:8888 -d jupyter/base-notebook start-notebook.sh --NotebookApp.token=''
  3. execute the following command:
    bash -c "$(curl -sfL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/google/tsunami-security-scanner/master/quick_start.sh)"

The quick_start.sh script performs the following tasks:

  1. Clone the google/tsunami-security-scanner and google/tsunami-security-scanner-plugins repos into $HOME/tsunami/repos directory.
  2. Compile all Google Tsunami plugins and move all plugin jar files into $HOME/tsunami/plugins directory.
  3. Compile the Tsunami scanner Fat Jar file and move it into $HOME/tsunami directory.
  4. Move the tsunami.yaml example config into $HOME/tsunami directory.
  5. Print example Tsunami command for scanning 127.0.0.1 using the previously generated artifacts.
