TIDoS Framework

The TIDoS Framework – The Offensive Manual Web Application Penetration Testing Framework


Here is some light on what the framework is all about:

  • A complete versatile framework to cover up everything from Reconnaissance to Vulnerability Analysis.
  • Has 5 main phases, subdivided into 14 sub-phases consisting a total of 108 modules.
  • Reconnaissance Phase has 50 modules of its own (including active and passive recon, information disclosure modules).
  • Scanning & Enumeration Phase has got 16 modules (including port scans, WAF analysis, etc)
  • Vulnerability Analysis Phase has 37 modules (including most common vulnerabilites in action).
  • Exploits Castle has only 1 exploit. (purely developmental)
  • And finally, Auxillaries have got 4 modules. more under development
  • All four phases each have a Auto-Awesome module which automates every module for you.
  • You just need the domain, and leave everything is to this tool.
  • TIDoS has full verbose out support, so you’ll know whats going on.
  • Fully user friendly interaction environment. (no shits)

Global Installation:


Presently, for installing globally, you will need to default your Python version to 2.x. However, the work of migration from Python2 to Python3 is already underway.

  • Clone the repository locally and navigate there:
git clone https://github.com/0xinfection/tidos-framework.git

cd tidos-framework
  • Install the dependencies:
chmod +x install

tidos framework install

Thats it! Now you are good to go! Now lets run the tool:


Manual Installation (Locally):

TIDoS needs some libraries to run, which can be installed via aptitude or yum Package Managers.

sudo apt-get install libncurses5 libxml2 nmap tcpdump libexiv2-dev build-essential python-pip python-xmpp

Now after these dependencies are finished installing, we need to install the remaining Python Package dependencies, hence run:

pip2 install -r requirements.txt

Thats it. You now have TIDoS at your service. Fire it up using:

python2 tidos.py

Docker image:

You can build it from Dockerfile:

git clone https://github.com/0xinfection/tidos-framework.git

cd tidos-framework/docker

docker build -r tidos .

To run TIDoS:

docker run --interactive --tty --rm tidos bash


Getting Started:

TIDoS is built to be a comprehensive, flexible and versatile framework where you just have to select and use modules.

So to get started, you need to set your own API KEYS for various OSINT & Scanning and Enumeration purposes. To do so, open up API_KEYS.py under files/ directory and set your own keys and access tokens for SHODAN, CENSYS, FULL CONTACT, GOOGLE and WHATCMS.


The latest release of TIDoS includes all API KEYS and ACCESS TOKENS for SHODAN, CENSYS, FULL CONTACT, GOOGLE and WHATCMS by default. I found these tokens on various repositories on GitHub itself. You can now use all the modules which use the API KEYS. 🙂

Finally, as the framework opens up, enter the website name eg. http://www.example.com and let TIDoS lead you. Thats it! Its as easy as that.


  • Follow the order of the tool (Run in a schematic way).
Reconnaissance ➣ Scanning & Enumeration ➣ Vulnerability Analysis

To update this tool, use tidos_updater.py module under tools/ folder.

TIDoS In Action:

Lets see some screenshots of TIDoS in real world pentesting action:

TIDoS In Action
tidos enum


v1.7 [latest release] [#stable]


These are some modules which I have thought of adding:

  • Some more of Enumeraton & Information Disclosure modules.
  • Lots more of OSINT & Stuff (let that be a suspense).
  • More of Auxillary Modules.
  • Some Exploits are too being worked on.


  • Working on a full-featured Web UI implementation on Flask and MongoDB and Node.js.
  • Working on a new framework, a real framework. To be released with v2
  • Working on a campaign feature + addition of arguments.
  • Normal Bug Fixing Stuffs. As per the issues being raised
  • Some other perks:
    • Working on a way for contributing new modules easily.
    • A complete new method of multi-threaded fuzzing of parameters.
    • Keeping better of new console stuff.


TIDoS is provided as a offensive web application audit framework. It has built-in modules which can reveal potential misconfigurations and vulnerabilties in web applications which could possibly be exploited maliciously.


Final Words:

This project is a very fresh and new project which just simply springed off my mind, and is presently under active development so you may want to put it on a watch, since it is updated frequently.

TIDoS is an in progress work far from perfection and I admit that there may be bugs out there which may cause many modules not to work properly and just bug out. However, being the only single author and maintainer behind this framework, it is my humble request to all users of this framework to hand me the list of modules via raising a new issuewhich simply do not work and bug out, and I would be more than happy to fix them as we jointly make our journey to realising TIDoS as the greatest web penetration testing framework ever built.


Please avoid doing any pull requests temporarily as work for v2 of this framework is already underway and in active development.
