Hetty is an HTTP toolkit for security research. It aims to become an open source alternative to commercial software like Burp Suite Pro, with powerful features tailored to the needs of the infosec and bug bounty community.
- [x] HTTP man-in-the-middle (MITM) proxy and GraphQL server.
- [x] Web interface (Next.js) with proxy log viewer.
- [ ] Add scope support to the proxy.
- [ ] Full text search (with regex) in proxy log viewer.
- [ ] Project management.
- [ ] Sender module for sending manual HTTP requests, either from scratch or based off requests from the proxy log.
- [ ] Attacker module for automated sending of HTTP requests.
Leverage the concurrency features of Go and its
net/httppackage to make it blazingly fast.
Hetty is packaged on GitHub as a single binary, with the web interface resources embedded.
? You can find downloads for Linux, macOS and Windows on the releases page.
Build from source
$ GO111MODULE=auto go get -u -v github.com/dstotijn/hetty/cmd/hetty
Then export the Next.js frontend app:
$ cd admin $ yarn install $ yarn export
This will ensure a folder
Then, you can bundle the frontend app using
easiest way to do this is via a supplied
command in the root of the project:
Alternatively, you can run Hetty via Docker. See:
dstotijn/hetty on Docker Hub.
$ docker run \ -v $HOME/.hetty/hetty_key.pem:/root/.hetty/hetty_key.pem \ -v $HOME/.hetty/hetty_cert.pem:/root/.hetty/hetty_cert.pem \ -v $HOME/.hetty/hetty.bolt:/root/.hetty/hetty.bolt \ -p 127.0.0.1:8080:8080 \ dstotijn/hetty
Hetty is packaged as a single binary, with the web interface
resources embedded. When the program is run, it listens by default
:8080 and is accessible via http://localhost:8080.
Depending on incoming HTTP requests, it either acts as a MITM
proxy, or it serves the GraphQL API and web interface
$ hetty -h Usage of ./hetty: -addr string TCP address to listen on, in the form "host:port" (default ":8080") -adminPath string File path to admin build -cert string CA certificate filepath. Creates a new CA certificate is file doesn't exist (default "~/.hetty/hetty_cert.pem") -db string Database file path (default "~/.hetty/hetty.bolt") -key string CA private key filepath. Creates a new CA private key if file doesn't exist (default "~/.hetty/hetty_key.pem")
⚠️ Todo: Write instructions for installing CA certificate in local CA store, and configuring Hetty to be used as a proxy server.
Vision and roadmap
The project has just gotten underway, and as such I haven’t had time yet to do a write-up on its mission and roadmap. A short summary/braindump:
- Fast core/engine, built with Go, with a minimal memory footprint.
- GraphQL server to interact with the backend.
- Easy to use web interface, built with Next.js and Material UI.
- Extensibility is top of mind. All modules are written as Go
packages, to be used by the main
hettyprogram, but also usable as libraries for other software. Aside from the GraphQL server, it should (eventually) be possible to also use it as a CLI tool.
- Pluggable architecture for the MITM proxy and future modules, making it possible for hook into the core engine.
- I’ve chosen Cayley as the graph database (backed by BoltDB storage on disk) for now (not sure if it will work in the long run). The benefit is that Cayley (also written in Go) is embedded as a library. Because of this, the complete application is self contained in a single running binary.
- Talk to the community, and focus on the features that the majority. Less features means less code to maintain.
The project is currently under active development. Please star/follow and check back soon. ?
Thanks to the Hacker101 community on Discord for all the encouragement to actually start building this thing!
