Dradis is a collaboration and reporting framework used by pentesters to accumulate all the statistic gathered from various security testing tools (ZAP, w3af, Nikto, etc.), proceed it and display/export in a user-friendly ‘readable’ manner. It really saves time and manage all this boring stuff of manual processing logs and reports.
It’s an open-source (GPLv2) and free, which is make it effective to use even in commercial projects.
Despite the Dradis is included in the Kali Linux 2016.2 (Rolling), I’ve got some issues running it since I’ve updated my Linux from Kali 2.0 (Sana). Browser show me Unable to connect error, whilst the console said «A server is already running«. I’ve managed to install the correct instance of Dradis from the latest Github available version and would like to share my experience with you.
- Follow the «Installing Dradis on Kali Linux» and run all the commands from there. If you’re working behind the proxy, check if you set http_proxy and https_proxy system variables.
- Once you get redis-server installed, follow the «Installing Dradis from Git» guide with my version:
root@kali:/opt# git clone https://github.com/dradis/dradis-ce.git root@kali:/opt# cd dradis-ce/ root@kali:/opt/dradis-ce# ./bin/setup root@kali:/opt/dradis-ce# gem install vegas root@kali:/opt/dradis-ce# bundle install --path vendor/cache
- Now try to run the Dradis
Applications -> System Services -> start dradis
Applications -> Reporting Tools -> dradis
If everything was ok, a browser started with URL like http://127.0.0.1:3000/setup where you’re welcomed to set your Dradis password and start the work with the framework.
