Backtrack 4: Information Gathering: Dradis – Effective Information Sharing

One of the biggest problems when conducting penetration tests and vulnerability assessments is the organization of all the information obtained on the test. I used to use a program called Leo to organize my information because it had a tree like interface and you well able to create a well mapped out report of all your information. A new tool was released last year which has expanded on this same method and added some other very cool features. Dradis is an open source framework to enable effective information sharing during penetration testing exercises. It provides a centralized repository of information to keep track of what has been done so far, and what is still ahead. Dradis is thus an ideal tool to help in the process of security assesments.
