Burp reports package
helpful reports for burp backup and restore
The new refactor doesnt use burp -a m, it uses burp-ui api to get data so you need burp-ui up and accessible.
The previous version is on tag 0.1 https://github.com/pablodav/burp_server_reports/tree/0.1 and it will not be maintained.
1.0 version was created with the objetive to have a flexible programming to allow new features to be easily added on next releases, also all features on this version have unit tests to ensure no break on next release.
Like burp-ui is created by a sysadmin that loves Burp and would like to help Burp adoption with it’s nice interface, I’m a sysadmin that loves burp and burp-ui and would like to help Burp adoption by providing nice reports.
I have started with those reports that I think are more critical in large deployments, but also are helpful for every deployment.
I have also created a lot of flexibility in the configuration of those reports, so you will notice that you could change almost every behaviour of them from the config file.
Python3.4+ pip install to install requirements listed in setup.py and also in requirements.txt
burpui 0.3.0+ (to be released but with many improvements in api performance and stability) burp 2.0.42+ (burp monitor has been improved a lot since this release)
Use protocol = 1 with burp2 server!!!!
sudo pip3 install burp_reports --upgrade
Also is possible to use:
sudo python3 -m pip install burp_reports --upgrade
On windows with python3.4:
\python34\scripts\pip install burp_reports --upgrade
For proxies add:
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR UBUNTU 14.04 and maybe others I have problems on the first try, it said No distributions matching the version, and fixed it with:
pip3 install pip --upgrade
It caches the data of burp-ui for 1h , if you need to refresh the data just remove /tmp/burp_reports_cache.sqlite
Use the command line:
- --report report choices report options.
- --report print (By default if no –report is given) - Print txt clients list only
- --report outdated: will report outdated clients
- --report inventory: Will compare with -i input.csv and will export to -o output.csv
- -c config.conf: Ini file to use
- --write_config: will write all default settings on config file not overwrites any existing, requires -c
- --report email_outdated: Will send email with outdated clients, requires config.
- -i (also can be an url, the program will recognize the url and download the file from it)
- --detail it adds more info like duration, size, received to the list printed. Can be used with --report outdated
- --ping it adds ping check to --report outdated only, so you can fast-check which outdated client is pinging.
Optional Configuration file
Configuration is required only to send emails. But allows you to customize the defaults used too:
burp-reports -c /config/file/path.conf
Recommended location: /etc/burp/burp-reports.conf
Auto generate a basic template: --write_config
Options to use in the file:
[common] burpui_apiurl = http://user:pass@localhost:5000/api/ days_outdated = 31 csv_delimiter = ; excluded_clients = list,of,clients,that,will,not,be,added,to,outdated,reports
- burpui_apiurl is overwritten by cmd if you use --burpui_apiurl
- csv_delimiter, used for -i and -o
More possible options in config:
- inventory_columns and inventory_status is used in --report inventory
- email_notification: Config that makes possible send emails
[inventory_columns] server = servidor status = status sub_status = status (detailed) client_name = device name [inventory_status] not_inventory_in_burp = not in inventory in_many_servers = duplicated in_inventory_updated = ok inactive_in_burp: wrong not active inactive_not_in_burp: ignored inactive spare_not_in_burp = ignored spare in_inventory_not_in_burp = absent spare_in_burp = wrong spare in burp inactive_in_burp = wrong not active spare = spare active = active [email_notification] email_to = root@localhost smtp_password = email_from = email@example.com smtp_server = localhost smtp_login = smtp_mode = normal smtp_port = 25 foot_notes = a sample notes in the end of your email
- email_to you can add a list of comma separated values without spaces.
- smtp_mode you can use normal/ssl/tls
- spare and active you can also specify a list of comma separated values without spaces as possible status.
To send email it uses pyzmail, so all options here are valid: http://www.magiksys.net/pyzmail/ I have successfully tested with smtp relay with no authentication and with gmail account, in my case I had to generate an “application password” in my account, logon of google.
By default it does not reads any config file and tries to use the defaults in the program. (the easiest way to see the defaults is to write a config with --write_config)
Inventory: Compare your clients with external inventory
Default columns is described in the configuration section above, you don’t need to specify it but you can change if required.
An example in input csv (you can also add many more columns as you desire, it will be automatically appended on output, like notes):
device name;status;Status (detailed);notes demo1; active;;should be ok demo2; active; spare; should be wrong spare cli10; active;; cli20; active; spare;
As the example, it will give you details only on “active” assets and will compare if it is spare or not also.
You can use it to compare with your list of clients (useful to see if all your inventory is in burp or not). It can also tell you if you have clients not in the inventory
--report inventory -i input.csv -o output.csv
not_inventory_in_burp: A client that's in burp but is not in input inventory in_many_servers: A client that's active in inventory and in more than one burp server (only possible with multiagent burp-ui server) in_inventory_updated: A client that's active in inventory, also in burp and is updated. inactive_in_burp: A client that is not active but it's in burp. inactive_not_in_burp: A client that's in inventory but his status is not in active status list. spare_not_in_burp: A client that's is Active - spare in the inventory and is not in burp (normally is ignored) in_inventory_not_in_burp: A client that's active in input inventory but not in any burp server spare_in_burp: A client that's is active spare and also is in burp. inactive_in_burp: A client that's is not active in the inventory but it's in burp spare = spare # Just the status used to identify an spare client in ``sub_status`` column active = active # The status used to identify an active client in ``status`` column
CRON - Schedule reports
burp-reports actually it’s only a command line, but you can use it in cron jobs to schedule it’s execution
I would recommend to create a file in /etc/cron.d/burp_reports
Cron file must be configured with lines in this way:
minute hour day month dayofweek user command
A template file example:
SHELL=/bin/bash PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin MAILTO=root HOME=/ # For details see man 4 crontabs # Example of job definition: # .---------------- minute (0 - 59) # | .------------- hour (0 - 23) # | | .---------- day of month (1 - 31) # | | | .------- month (1 - 12) OR jan,feb,mar,apr ... # | | | | .---- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0 or 7) OR sun,mon,tue,wed,thu,fri,sat # | | | | | # * * * * * user-name command to be executed 0 9 * * 1 root burp-reports -c /etc/burp/burp-reports.conf --report email_outdated 0 10 * * 1 root burp-reports -c /etc/burp/burp-reports.conf --report inventory -i url/or/path -o /var/www/html/inventory_status.csv
/usr/local/bin could be the most critical part in this template, as pip installs the executable there. You can also specify the full path for executable like: /usr/local/bin/burp-reports and then will not need PATH
