Getting started

  • Get access to the system's CLI
  • Make sure you have enough memory (8GB+ is recommended)
free -m

Setting up Dependencies

This section helps you set up all the software and libraries that intrigue-core depends on.

  • Update the system
sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade
  • Install Git and Build-Essential meta package
sudo apt-get -y install git-core build-essential
  • Install DB libraries
sudo apt-get -y install libpq-dev postgresql-9.6 postgresql-server-dev-9.6 redis-server
  • Check to see if a JRE is installed & if not installed, install a JRE
java -version
sudo apt-get -y install default-jre
  • Install nmap, zmap
sudo apt-get -y install nmap zmap
  • Install masscan
sudo apt-get -y install git gcc make libpcap-dev
git clone
cd masscan
sudo make install
  • Install PhantomJS & Imagemagick
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential chrpath libssl-dev libxft-dev libfreetype6-dev \
  libfreetype6 libfontconfig1-dev libfontconfig1 imagemagick
sudo tar xvjf phantomjs-2.1.1-linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 -C /usr/local/share/
sudo ln -s /usr/local/share/phantomjs-2.1.1-linux-x86_64/bin/phantomjs /usr/local/bin/
  • Make sure your user can run nmap, masscan as root. Add these lines to /etc/sudoers:
%users    ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/nmap
%users    ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/masscan
  • Install rbenv, ruby-build, and rbenv gemset and ruby
git clone ~/.rbenv
cd ~/.rbenv && src/configure && make -C src
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile 
echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bash_profile

# note for Ubuntu Desktop use .bashrc, for those that are using zsh use .zshrc. 
source ~/.bash_profile 
# or source ~/.bashrc for desktop
git clone ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build
git clone git:// $HOME/.rbenv/plugins/rbenv-gemset
rbenv install 2.4.0
  • Create a gemset
rbenv gemset create 2.4.0 core

Getting the code

  • Pull down the code from Github
git clone core
  • Install gems via bundler
cd core
gem install bundler --no-ri --no-rdoc
bundle install

Edit your postgres config to trust local connections

sudo vim /etc/postgresql/9.6/main/pg_hba.conf

When complete it should look like this:

# TYPE  DATABASE        USER            ADDRESS                 METHOD

# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all             all                                     trust
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all             all               trust
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all             all             ::1/128                 trust

Use postgres as the backend server

sudo su -
su postgres
createuser intrigue -P # and enter a password
createdb intrigue_dev --owner intrigue

Configure & migrate the database

# now edit the config/database.yml file if you configured postgres 
bundle exec rake db:migrate

Edit the system config and set a password

Open config/config.json and edit the 'password' field

Start it up

  • Start the application
foreman start

  • Ensure it's running (should show it running on
netstat -lntp

Now, simply edit the database "development" config to correspond with your postgres database settings

OPTIONAL: Configure it to listen on ...

NOTE.. This can affect security of your system. You'll want to set a strong password (see above) before doing this. This is not a good idea unless you know what you're doing.

You've been warned. Open up an editor with vim config/puma.rb and edit the line bind 'tcp://' to bind 'tcp://'
