With the release of PenTest.WS version 1.5.2 earlier this week, PTWS Pro has officially entered its Private Beta phase.
PenTest.WS Pro is an offline stand-alone version of the online web application designed to run directly inside your Kali Linux virtual machine. The Pro Tier was developed for professional penetration testers who must comply with strict non-disclosure agreements or those who operate within a restricted network environment.
PTWS Pro, once setup is complete, is an offline web application which does not connect to the internet unless instructed to do so by the user. During setup the application will need to verify its licensing and download copies of the Exploit Database, Metasploit Modules and Nmap Scripts. These locally cached repositories can be refreshed at anytime through the administrator panel.
Version 1.5.2 – Export / Import Account Items
Earlier this week version 1.5.2 was released bringing with it the ability to export and import account items. These items include:
- Templates: Shells, Port Scans, Subnet Scans
- Global Service Notes
- Service Command Library (Hobby Tier)
- Default Service Checklist (Hobby Tier)
This capability is useful for backing up your valuable notes & commands but it is essential if you’re planning to migrate from the online version to the soon to be released Pro Tier. The export routine creates a single json file which then can be loaded into your local offline Pro Tier application.
The Export & Import Account Items functionality is available now under the user menu located in the top right corner of PenTest.WS
Progress on the Pro Tier has been very exciting and public availability is expected in the second quarter of 2019.
