Armitage - Cyber Attack Management

Technology has no end, on the previous article we have discussed about metasploit framework, that has been changed the way of penetration testing, Armitage is a graphical cyber attack management tool for Metasploit that visualises your targets, recommends exploits, and exposes the advanced capabilities of the framework.

When metasploit and armitage meet to each other than they make a powerful cyber management tool for doing pen testing on the network(s). Armitage allow your team to use the same sessions, share data, and communicate through one Metasploit instance. It is very helpful tool to learn about the cyber security because it provides a graphical interface instead of command line.

Just like metasploit, Armitage is also available for different operating system like Linux, Windows and MAC. Below is the tutorial on how to get and install armitage.
