BETTERCAP: A complete, modular, portable and easily extensible MITM framework.

bettercap is a complete, modular, portable and easily extensible MITM tool and framework with every kind of diagnostic and offensive feature you could need in order to perform a man in the middle attack.


> Yet another MITM tool? C'mon, really?!!?

This is exactly what you are thinking right now, isn't it? :D But allow yourself to think about it for 5 more minutes ... what you should be really asking is:

> Does a complete, modular, portable and easy to extend MITM tool actually exist?

If your answer is "ettercap", let me tell you something:

  • ettercap was a great tool, but it made its time.
  • ettercap filters do not work most of the times, are outdated and hard to implement due to the specific language they're implemented in.
  • ettercap is freaking unstable on big networks ... try to launch the host discovery on a bigger network rather than the usual /24 ;)
  • yeah you can see connections and raw pcap stuff, nice toy, but as a professional researcher I want to see only relevant stuff.
  • unless you're a C/C++ developer, you can't easily extend ettercap or make your own module.

The project is done by evilsocket ( that will be organizing a workshop at Italian Embassy, if you want to hack code or learn how to play with bettercap, come at the Italian Embassy and/or drop an email!
