Armitage is a graphical cyber attack management tool for the Metasploit Project that visualizes targets and recommends exploits. It is a free and open source network security tool notable for its contributions to red team collaboration allowing for, shared sessions, data, and communication through a single Metasploit instance.[1] Armitage is written and supported by Raphael Mudge.

History[edit]

Armitage is a GUI front-end for the Metasploit Framework developed by Raphael Mudge with the goal of helping security professionals better understand hacking and to help them realize the power of Metasploit. Further information about this project can be obtained at Armitage's Official Website.[2]

Features[edit]

Armitage is a scriptable red team collaboration tool built on top of the Metasploit Framework. Through Armitage, you may launch scans and exploits, get exploit recommendations, and use the advanced features of the Metasploit Framework's meterpreter. Armitage was originally made for Cyber Defense Exercises, but a lot of penetration testers use Armitage for its collaboration capabilities and its time-saving GUI.[3]
