# list the available category/tools
sec-tools list

# install whatever <category/tool-name>
sec-tools install binary/apktool

# use the tool - your path is automatically configured
apktool --version

Virtualization and Containers

Ready to launch, will install every tool for you. Grab a while making these.

Docker Docker Badge

git clone
docker build -t sec-tools .
docker run -it sec-tools

Vagrant Vagrant Badge

vagrant up
vagrant ssh

Adding Tools

To add a tool (say, named toolname), do the following:

  1. Decide what category it falls under. You probably shouldn't create a new one.
  2. Create a category\toolname directory.
  3. Create an script. It's a simple bash script, look at already made ones for example.

License 🌟🌟

The individual tools are all licensed under their own licenses. As for sec-tools itself, it is "starware". If you find it useful, star it on github (
