Simple self hosting solution based on docker for bug hunters.

Project description


PwnMachine is a self hosting solution based on docker aiming to provide an easy to use pwning station for bughunters.

The basic install include a DNS server, a reverse proxy and a webserver.


On your home computer

  • docker-machine
  • sshfs (optional)
  • python3

You need to create a docker-machine for your server.

docker-machine create \ 
 --driver generic \
 --generic-ip-address= \
 --generic-ssh-user=root \
 --generic-ssh-key=/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa \

For more information:

On your server

required available port:

  • tcp: 80 443 53
  • udp: 53

On a fresh Ubuntu server installation systemd listen on port 53 you will need to shut the service down and change your dns.

systemctl disable --now systemd-resolved.service
echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolv.conf #opendns servers


You must set your host as your authoritative nameserver. You must wait for the DNS propagation or the domain verification by let's encrypt will fail.


First install the pm client.

pip install pwn-machine

On your first run you need to setup PwnMachine with

pm setup

Then you can build and start all your services.

pm service build
pm service start

This will start an interactive installer. The installer will create the configuration directory and add the required environment variable and autocompletion to your shell init file.
