TANNER is a remote data analysis and classification service to evaluate HTTP requests and composing the response then served by SNARE. TANNER uses multiple application vulnerability type emulation techniques when providing responses for SNARE. In addition, TANNER provides Dorks for SNARE powering its luring capabilities.


The documentation can be found here.

Basic Concept

  • Evaluating SNARE events.
  • Serve dorks.
  • Emulate vulnerabilities and provide responses.

Getting Started

  • You need Python3.7 and above for installing tanner.
  • This was tested with a recent Ubuntu-based Linux.

Steps to install TANNER

Step 1: Setup Redis

  1. Install the Redis: sudo apt-get install redis-server
  2. Run redis-server (to start it on localhost with default port)

Step 2: Setup PHP Sandbox

  1. For PHP Sandbox setup, see sandbox manual
  2. In PHP Sandbox directory, run sandbox: sudo python3

Step 3: Setup Docker

  1. Run sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

For more info please see the detailed installation guide here.

Step 4: Setup and run TANNER

  1. Get TANNER: git clone
  2. Go to the TANNER source directory: cd tanner
  3. Install requirements: sudo pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  4. Install TANNER: sudo python3 install
  5. Run TANNER: sudo tanner
  6. (Optional) For runnning TANNER Api sudo tannerapi
  7. (Optional) For runnning TANNER Web sudo tannerweb

Note:- Make sure you have python3-dev incase you are facing problem with installing some requirments.

  sudo apt-get install python3-dev

(Recommended) You should bind to when running in production and on a different host than SNARE.

Install and run TANNER using docker container

In case you want to run the TANNER service using docker or facing any problem in setting up TANNER on your machine, you can follow these steps.

Docker build instructions

  1. Change the current directory to tanner/docker
  2. sudo docker-compose build
  3. sudo docker-compose up

More information about running docker-compose can be found here.


In order to run the tests and receive a test coverage report, we recommend running pytest:

pip install pytest pytest-cov
sudo pytest --cov-report term-missing --cov=tanner tanner/tests/
