The primary responsibility of red teaming is to assess malicious actors and attempt to breach the system genuinely.

Red teaming’s motto is to mitigate cognitive errors such as groupthink and confirmation bias, which can impede an organization’s or individual’s decision-making ability.

Red teaming is a cybersecurity training approach commonly utilized by private and public sectors.

The primary role of the red team is to identify the risks in your organization through conventional penetration testing.

Red Team Browser Extension – HackTools

HackTools is a red team web extension developed by Ludovic COULON & Riadh BOUCHAHOUA. The tool simplifies web application penetration testing by providing cheat sheets.

Also, it offers a variety of tools commonly used during a test, including XSS payloads, reverse shells, and other resources.

The extension eliminates the need to search for payloads on various websites or your local storage, as most tools are conveniently accessible with a single click.
