18

CDB is a Chrome Debug Protocol utility. The main goal of the tool is to automate common tasks to help debug web applications from the command-line and actively monitor and intercept HTTP requests and responses. This is particularly useful during penetration tests and other types of security assessments and investigations.

Quickstart

This tool is meant to be used as part of Pown.js but it can be invoked separately as an independent tool.

Install Pown first as usual:

$ npm install -g pown@latest

Invoke directly from Pown:

$ pown cdb

Library Use

Install this module locally from the root of your project:

$ npm install @pown/cdb –save

Once done, invoke pown cli:

$ POWN_ROOT=. ./node_modules/.bin/pown-cli cdb
