Fancy shields: Coming Soon™
This tool is designed, developed and supported by evait security. In order to give something back to the security community, we publish our internally used and developed, state of the art network visualization and organization tool, 'envizon'. We hope your feedback will help to improve and hone it even further.
We use envizon for our pentests in order to get an overview of a network and quickly identify the most promising targets.
- Scan networks with predefined or custom nmap queries
- Order clients with preconfigured or custom groups
- Search through all attributes of clients and create complex linked queries
- Get an overview of your targets during pentests with predefined security labels
- Save and reuse your most used nmap scans
- Collaborate with your team on the project in realtime
- Export selected clients in a text file to connect other tools fast
How to start?!
To avoid compatibility and dependency issues, and to make it easy to set up, we use Docker. You can build your own images or use prebuilt ones from Docker Hub.
Docker and Docker Compose are required.
Prebuilt Docker Images
docker-compose.yml from the
docker/ directory and run it with
The Docker image will be pulled from
If you want to update the image or pull it manually, you can do so with
docker pull evait/envizon.
If you want to provide your own SSL-certificates and/or RAILS_SECRET, modify the
docker-compose.yml according to your needs, otherwise both will be generated.
For the lazy ones
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/evait-security/envizon/master/docker/docker-compose.yml sudo docker-compose up
Running from local git checkout
git clone https://github.com/evait-security/envizon cd envizon/docker sudo docker-compose -f docker-compose_local.yml up
If, for whatever reason, you want to run the development environment in production, you should probably consider changing the secrets in
config/secrets.yml, and maybe even manually activate SSL.
git clone https://github.com/evait-security/envizon cd envizon/docker sudo docker-compose -f docker-compose_development.yml up
docker exec -it envizon_container_name_1 /bin/ash -c 'rails test'
If you use Arch Linux, there is now a
PKGBUILD available in the AUR, as well as in the
/PKGBUILD-directory, also including a simple script to generate the database and database user.
Currently it uses bundler to install the required Ruby Gems in
/opt/envizon, as many Ruby packages are not available in the AUR or the upstream repos. We might improve this situation soon by providing our own, internally used Arch repository.
Requires a PostgreSQL server.
Create a database
envizon with a user
envizon. Password and socket location can be modified in the
docker-compose.yml. Your user needs SUPERUSER privileges; otherwise database import (and tests) won't work, because of foreign key constraints: use
ALTER USER user WITH SUPERUSER;.
git clone https://github.com/evait-security/envizon cd envizon bundle install --path vendor/bundle
You need to create a secret and SSL certificates:
mkdir .ssl openssl req -x509 -sha256 -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -days 365 -keyout .ssl/localhost.key -out .ssl/localhost.crt # If you want to use certificates located elsewhere, provide their pathes with SSL_CERT_PATH and SSL_KEY_PATH # Create a secret: RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails secret
The secret needs to be provided as an environment variable (SECRET_KEY_BASE), or be put in
Then, run it with:
RAILS_ENV=production export RAILS_ENV SECRET_KEY_BASE=YOUR_SECRET export SECRET_KEY_BASE bundle exec rails db:migrate bundle exec rails db:seed bundle exec rails assets:precompile RAILS_FORCE_SSL=true RAILS_SERVE_STATIC_FILES=true bundle exec rails s
Databases for development and testing are called
envizon_development, with the same requirements as above. Different database names and credentials can be provided via environment variables or directly modified in
git clone https://github.com/evait-security/envizon cd envizon bundle install --path vendor/bundle RAILS_ENV=development export RAILS_ENV bundle exec rails db:migrate bundle exec rails db:seed bundle exec rails s
To run the tests:
RAILS_ENV=test db:setup bundle exec rails test
Set a password
You have to specify a password for your envizon instance. You can change it in the settings interface after logging in.
The scan interface is divided in two sections. On the left side you can run a new scan with preconfigured parameters or your own nmap fu. You also have the possibility to upload
previously created nmap scans (with the
On the right side you will see your running and finished scans.
The group interface is the heart of envizon. You can select, group, order, quick search, global search, move, copy, delete and view your clients. The left side represents the group list. If you click on a group you will get a detailed view in the center of the page with the group content. Each client in a group has a link. By clicking on the IP address you will get a more detailed view on the right side with all attributes, labels, ports and nmap output.
Most of the buttons and links have tooltips.
In this section you can search for nearly anything in the database and combine each search parameter with 'AND', 'OR' & 'NOT'.
Perform simple queries for hostname, IP, open ports, etc. or create combined queries like:
hostname contains 'win' AND mac address starts with '0E:5C' OR has port 21 and 22 open.
- Currently not. We will work on it. Maybe.
Which browsers are supported?
- Latest Chrome / Chromium / Inox & Firefox / Waterfox.
- Wanted to learn ruby. It's cool.
Why so salty on github issue discussion?
- This is a community project. We are a full time pentesting company and will not go into / care about every open issue that doesn't match our template or guidelines. If you get a rough answer or picture, you probably deserved it.
What frameworks and tools were used?
- Ruby on Rails
- ruby-nmap (https://github.com/sophsec/ruby-nmap)
- Materialize CSS (http://materializecss.com/)
- Font Awesome Icons (https://fontawesome.com/)
- Material Icons (https://material.io/icons/)
- Many, many helpful gems
