Project description

Navi Pro - The Swiss Army Knife

A command-line tool which leverages the API to reduce the time it takes to get information that is common in Cyber Exposure or Vulnerability Management.

*** This is not Supported by Tenable ***

Important Note

Navi Pro will download the entire data-set(90 days) locally after API keys are entered and the update command is used! To download Vuln and Asset data you have to be an Administrator in

All Vulns and All Assets are downloaded into a SQLLITE database named navi.db in the current directory.

Most of the API calls nessessary to make Navi work require access to your all of the available data. has a 5000 record limit so Navi Pro utilizes the Export API.

The data will not be updated until you run the update command. Keep this in mind when adding elements to like Tags.

Navi update

Alternatively you can select which export you want to update:

Navi update -assets

Navi update -vulns

Furthermore, you can limit how much data is downloaded by using the --days command

Navi update -assets --days 2

Download and Configure Navi in a Docker Container

docker pull silentninja/navi:latest

docker run -it -p 8000:8000 silentninja/navi:latest /bin/bash 

Navi keys

Navi update

Detach from Container


Attach to Contianer

docker attach <container id>

<press enter>

Configure For Reporting

Navi has a few reporting capabilities where a CSV is the output. To extract this data from the container you will need to launch the container with port 8000 exposed and use the 'http' command to extract the reports.

docker run -it -p 8000:8000 silentninja/navi:latest /bin/bash

Extract Data

To extract data from the container you need to run an http server. Use the below built in command.

Navi http
  • Navigate to the website:
  • Simply download the item you want by clicking on it.


Before you begin you need the Keys! The program will continue to error out without valid API keys

Navi keys

Each command has two parts: the Command and the Option/Request. Double-Dash(--), commands expect a text value. Single-Dash commands do not have an expected input.

There are thirteen core commands:

  • api - query api endpoints

  • lumin - Bulk adjust ACRs based on a tag
  • add - Manually Add an asset to or a list of assets via CSV
  • delete - Delete a scan by Scan ID
  • agroup - Create an Access Group by Tag or Agent Group

There are thirteen single use commands:

  • scan - Create and launch a scan
  • start - Start a scan by Scan-ID
  • pause - Pause a scan by Scan-ID
  • resume - Resume a scan by Scan-ID
  • stop - Stop a scan by Scan-ID
  • spider - Create a WebApp scan for every URL in a CSV
  • update - Update local Export Vuln and Asset data.
  • status - Get the latest status by Scan ID

  • keys - Add or update your keys
  • http - Run an http server to extract files from the container
  • listen - Run a netcat listener to receive a single file
  • smtp - Enter or update your SMTP information

Add assets manually or via a CSV file - 'add'

To add an asset you need an IP address; Everything else is optional. If you are going to use a CSV file you need to structure it in this order: IP, Mac, Hostname, FQDN. This is the order the information is parsed so getting it incorrect will cause errors.

Create 100s of Webapp Scans from a CSV File

To Receive a file for Navi Pro to use you must push the file to the container. Netcat is installed on the container to do this, or you can use the 'listen' command to accomplish this.

Navi spider <your_csv_file.csv>
  • Choose your Scan type : Webapp Overview or Webapp Scan
  • Choose your scanner: A list will be displayed
  • Scans will be created but not started.
  • An output of the Webapp URL and Scan ID will be displayed on completion

Getting Data into the Container

From the container - Prepare your container to receive a file

Navi listen


nc -l -p 8000 > yourfilename.csv

From the computer with the file - Send the file

nc containerhostIP 8000 < yourfilename.csv
