HomePWN : Swiss Army Knife for Pentesting of IoT Devices

HomePwn is a framework that provides features to audit and pentesting devices that company employees can use in their day-to-day work and inside the same working environment.

It is designed to find devices in the home or office, take advantage of certain vulnerabilities to read or send data to those devices. With a strong library of modules you can use this tool to load new features and use them in a vast variety of devices.

HomePwn has a modular architecture in which any user can expand the knowledge base about different technologies. Principally it has two different components:

  • Discovery modules. These modules provide functionalities related to the discovery stage, regardless of the technology to be used. For example, it can be used to conduct WiFi scans via an adapter in monitor mode, perform discovery of BLE devices, Bluetooth Low-Energy, which other devices are nearby and view their connectivity status, etc. Also, It can be used to discover a home or office IoT services using protocols such as SSDP or Simple Service Discovery Protocol and MDNS or Multicast DNS.
  • Specific modules for the technology to be audited. On the other hand, there are specific modules for audited technology. Today, HomePwn can perform auditing tests on technologies such as WiFi, NFC, or BLE. In other words, there are modules for each of these technologies in which different known vulnerabilities or different techniques are implemented to asses the device’s security level implemented and communicated with this kind of technologies.

Installing All Requisites

To install all dependencies in Ubuntu 18.04 or derivatives use the file install.sh

> sudo apt-get update
> sudo ./install.sh

The script ask you if you want to create a virtualenv, if your answer is ‘y’ then it installs python libraries within the virtual environment, if not in the system itself

Usage

To run the script, if you chose a virtual environment in the installation follow execute the next command to activate the virtual environment:

> source homePwn/bin/activate

Launch the application:

> sudo python3 homePwn.py

Examples

Here are some videos to see how the tool works.
