Zuthaka is a collaborative free open-source Command & Control integration framework that allows developers to concentrate on the core function and goal of their C2.
About The Project
The current C2s ecosystem has rapidly grown in order to adapt to modern red team operations and diverse needs (further information on C2 selection can be found here). This comes with a lot of overhead work for Offensive Security professionals everywhere. Creating a C2 is already a demanding task, and most C2s available lack an intuitive and easy to use web interface. Most Red Teams must independently administer and understand each C2 in their infrastructure.
With the belief that community efforts surpass that of any individual, Zuthaka presents a simplified API for fast and clear integration of C2s and provides a centralized management for multiple C2 instances through a unified interface for Red Team operations.
Zuthaka is more than just a collection of C2s, it is also a solid foundation that can be built upon and easily customized to meet the needs of the exercise that needs to be accomplish. This integration framework for C2 allows developers to concentrate on a unique target environment and not have to reinvent the wheel.
- Django Rest Framework
Zuthaka is composed of a front-end that exposes a UI for the API of process manager, file manager, shell post-exploitation modules and general C2 handling, and a back-end, in charge of handling the consistency and availability issues of the C2s instantiated in Zuthaka. Also deployed is Redis as a message broker to handle asynchronously every element in the Agent’s UI and an Nginx server.
The installation of a working Docker instance is necessary for the automatic deployment of the essential infrastructure (Zuthaka’s frontend and backend, Nginx, Redis). All the desired C2s that need to be handled should be deployed in parallel.
