We have made some significant performance and user-experience improvements to Packets, our network packet analysis tools. The most notable changes are that now you can load large packet captures without breaking sweat. In contrast, WireShark takes time to load and process packet captures in our tests.
Encoder Binary Support
From today the Encoder supports binary encoding and decoding. You can load any file from your local file system or simply type what you have in mind. If you are dealing with binary, you will be presented with a hex viewer. In all other circumstances you will see the default text editor you are already familiar with.
The Scanner now comes with builtin support for notifications. This option is particularly useful in situations where you rely on features such as Co-Pilot to perform the testing while manually exercising the application in a different browser tab. You will be notified immediately when vulnerabilities are discovered. Simple as that.
The Scanner now support notes. You can now embed any arbitrary text information in your scanner files. For example, you can add some notes about how the scanning process went or include some awesome ASCII art.
Encoder Data URI Support
The Encoder now comes with Data URI encoding and decoding capabilities.
We are very excited to announce the preview release of Scout. SecApps Scout gives you a 360° visibility of all your external system assets such as domains, IP addresses, ports, services, and web applications. With Scout, you can build up and continuously manage your systems asset catalog without the need to provision many specialist tools, configure support infrastructure, aggregate reports and keep everyone informed via the right communication channel.
SecApps Scout was specifically designed to help you stay ahead of cybercriminals by automatically identifying the weakest links in your public infrastructure with builtin support for automatic change detection and auxiliary tools for filtering, sorting, categorizing and testing the Scout results.
Your scouts will also keep you and your team up to-to-date with automatic summary emails and slack messages sent from your scouts upon completion. It has never been easier to get a personal 24/7 security monitoring infrastructure ready to operate at any scale under any conditions.
JSON Path Encoder
The Encoder tools from the Online Suite now supports JSONPath evaluations. This will help you extract values directly from the chain of transformations, saving time and additional effort. With JSONPath we can perform a wide-range of JSON manipulations which are particularly useful when dealing with JWT tokens, AWS pre-signed URL and forms and more.
Cohesion version 1.1.1 now comes with built-in hotkey support when running with TTY support. The hotkeys will allow you to introspect the scanner and all other tools while running. It is also possible to dump snapshot reports without interception of the current scanning process.
Most of the tools are now able to export results as a serialized BSON stream (the default serialization format). Unlike the CSV and JSON, this export forms is capable of efficiently describing all captured information in great details - including the untampered binary data for the requests and responses. Furthermore, the exported format can be read and processed via cohesion command line tools, which makes it great for scripting.
