All of us know that a typical penetration testing engagement begins with reconnaissance (run nmap, etc.), testing for services & their default passwords then moving onto launching common exploits (Metasploit, etc.), getting access and then lateral movement. This is okay on small networks, but tends to be slow on large networks. Fortunately, we have APT2 to help us! Read more about APT2: An Automated Penetration Testing Toolkit!
This year at RSA, I remember meeting with a vendor who dealt with database security by encrypting the database. I forget the name, but found a open source project - Acra, which I think is a promising product if designed & developed right.

Since I blogged a bit about docker security tools, I thought of continuing the trend and introduce Pwnbox, is an open source docker container that has tools to aid you in reverse engineering and exploitation. It allows you to package up an container with all of the tools of trade you need in a capture-the-flag situation, or elsewhere too!

Wow! It is raining container security suites now! What with our last post being about Dockerscan and this is about Anchore; a robust container analysis, inspection and control system. An automated tweet went out and Scott Francis alerted me about this open source analysis system. I thought of checking it out and here we are.

What better way to kick off the first blog post than talk about a tool which deals with Docker security. Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers. These containers bundle up pieces of software in a complete filesystem that has everything it needs to run, so that you can package your applications into a singular unit. This is where Dockerscan comes into the picture. Read more about Dockerscan: A Docker Security Analysis Suite!
