About BloodHound

BloodHound is a single page Javascript web application, built on top of Linkurious, compiled with Electron, with a Neo4j database fed by a C# data collector.

BloodHound uses graph theory to reveal the hidden and often unintended relationships within an Active Directory or Azure environment. Attackers can use BloodHound to easily identify highly complex attack paths that would otherwise be impossible to quickly identify. Defenders can use BloodHound to identify and eliminate those same attack paths. Both blue and red teams can use BloodHound to easily gain a deeper understanding of privilege relationships in an Active Directory or Azure environment.

BloodHound was created by @_wald0, @CptJesus, and @harmj0y.

BloodHound is maintained by the BloodHound Enterprise team.

About BloodHound Enterprise

BloodHound Enterprise is an Attack Path Management solution that continuously maps and quantifies Active Directory Attack Paths. You can remove millions, even billions of Attack Paths within your existing architecture and eliminate the attacker’s easiest, most reliable, and most attractive techniques.
