Overlord – Red Teaming Infrastructure Automation

Overlord – Red Teaming Automation

Overlord provides a python-based console CLI which is used to build Red Teaming infrastructure in an automated way. The user has to provide inputs by using the tool’s modules (e.g. C2, Email Server, HTTP web delivery server, Phishing server etc.) and the full infra / modules and scripts will be generated automatically on a cloud provider of choice. Currently supports AWS and Digital Ocean. The tool is still under development and it was inspired and uses the Red-Baron Terraform implementation found on Github.

A demo infrastructure was set up in our blog post https://blog.qsecure.com.cy/posts/overlord/.

For the full documentation of the tool visit the Wiki tab at https://github.com/qsecure-labs/overlord/wiki.


git clone https://github.com/qsecure-labs/overlord.git
cd overlord/config
chmod +x install.sh
sudo ./install.sh


This project could not be created without the awsome work for Marcello Salvati @byt3bl33d3r with the RedBaron Project. That is the reason why we are referencing the name of RedBaron on our project as well.

As Marcello stated on his acknowledgments, further thanks to:

  1. @_RastaMouse’s two-part blogpost on ‘Automated Red Team Infrastructure Deployment with Terraform’ Part 1 and 2
  2. @bluscreenofjeff’s with his amazing Wiki on Read Team Infrastucture
  3. @spotheplanet’s blog post on Red team infrastructure
