UPnP Request Generator Released at Black Hat USA 2013 Daniel Crowley dcrowley@trustwave.com http://www.trustwave.com


UPnP Request Generator is a tool for parsing remote XML description files for UPnP daemons and generating requests to invoke each UPnP action exposed by the UPnP daemon.

This tool does not perform discovery, so use your favorite tool to discover UPnP-enabled hosts. If you do not have a favorite tool, try the nmap NSE scripts 'broadcast-upnp-info' and 'upnp-info'. This is an intentional decision, as some hosts expose control endpoints to interfaces which are not reachable by multicast, which is how UPnP discovery traditionally happens.

This tool does not make the UPnP control requests, it only generates requests in the right format. This is intentional, since it is often desirable to create malformed requests or to send requests quickly in order to produce unexpected behavior from the UPnP endpoint. The variable values set in the requests are probably not valid values as generated, they are filled with the type of value expected for that variable. Manually edit the generated requests before use. This tool is designed to generate requests destined for Burp Repeater or Burp Intruder.

Be aware that UPnP daemons are generally poorly built and may not have properly formatted XML files (the tool is built to be very fault tolerant but despite attempts to be foolproof they keep building better fools). If you discover that this tool fails to parse a particular descriptor XML file, please submit a bug and include the relevant XML file.
