Pirate List of awesome Windows security resources

This list is for anyone wishing to learn offensive Windows security. The list will for the most part consist of tools available on Github.

The tools are categorized according to Adversarial Tactics and Techniques based on Mitre ATT&CK. Some tools fit several technqiues and some doesn't quite fit anywhere. I appreciate any help with finding the right tactics and techniques.

You can contribute by sending pull requests, create issues with suggestions or write to me on Twitter @chryzsh. I have made a template for adding new tools here -> Contributing
