Armitage – The Ultimate Attack Platform for Metasploit

To use Armitage, it is necessary to understand Metasploit. Metasploit is a command line tool. Anything you do in Armitage is translated into a command that Metasploit understands. To make it easier and funnier “Raphael Mudge” designed Armitage, which is a user interface for Metasploit.Armitage is a graphical management tool for Metasploit. It helps you to indulge your senses by visualizing your targets, recommends exploits and exposes the advance capabilities of the framework.

Armitage takes Metasploit‟s capabilities to a new level of ease with new features like:
  1. Discovery
  2. Access
  3. Post Exploitation
  4. Maneuver
Armitage has the following prerequisites:
  • Java 1.6.0+
  • Metasploit 3.5+
  • Armitage requires you to know the Username, Password, Hostname, and Database before connecting.
If you're on Windows, you're in luck, the Metasploit team sets up PostgreSQL for you. If you launch Metasploit on Windows, you do not need to provide database information when launching Armitage.

Note: Backtrack 5 includes Metasploit and Armitage by default and it is fully configured for immediate use.
