Red Baron


Red Baron is a set of modules and custom/third-party providers for Terraform which tries to automate creating resilient, disposable, secure and agile infrastructure for Red Teams.

Third-party Providers

This repository comes with a few pre-compiled Terraform plugins (you can find them under the terraform.d directory), some of these have been modified to better suit the tool:

Author and Acknowledgments

Author: Marcello Salvati (@byt3bl33d3r)

The initial inspiration for this came from @_RastaMouse's excellent 'Automated Red Team Infrastructure Deployment with Terraform' blog posts series:

And @bluscreenofjeff's amazing Red Team Infrastructure Wiki

Both of these resources were referenced heavily while building this.


Red Baron only supports Terraform version 0.10.0 or newer and will only work on Linux x64 systems.

Google Cloud Compute

Google Cloud Compute requires creating a project under the Google Cloud console.

  • Create a project, generate a service key, and download the json file to the google_keys dir.
  • Modify the and files to reference your service account key json file and your project-id.
  • Set up firewall rules in the Google Cloud Console: Settings -> VPC network -> Firewall rules. Create a new rule:
network=default, priority=1, direction=ingress, action on match=allow, ip-range=, protocols:ports=tcp:22,tcp:80,tcp:443

Tool & Module Documentation

For detailed documentation on the tool and each module please see Red Baron's wiki.

Most of the documentation assumes you are familiar with Terraform itself, Terraform's documentation can be found here.
