Homebrew Tap - Pen Test Tools


This repo is UNMAINTAINED. Unless pull requests are received, no changes or fixes will be made in the foreseable future. I no longer use these formulae, and do not have the time to keep them in a working state.


This is a Tap containing some Homebrew formulas consisting of penetration testing related tools. Nearly all these formulas should build and run on both macOS and Linux.

macOS Specific Notes

The following Formulae do not build/work under macOS:

  • enum4linux - depends on rpcclient, net, nmblookup, smbclient which are tools included with Samba and not found on macOS
  • libnl - depends on specific functionality contained only within the Linux kernel
  • aircrack-ng - depends on libnl (see above)
  • wifite - depends on aircrack-ng (see above)
  • nfsshell - depends on specific functionality contained within the glibc library
  • frogger - depends on the Linux vconfig tool
  • mitmf - a python dependency depends on specific functionality found only within the Linux kernel

Ubuntu Specific Notes

The following dependencies will need to be installed on Ubuntu based systems:

sudo apt install build-essential curl git libpcap-dev python-setuptools python-dev
