Pwntools is a CTF framework and exploit development library. Written in Python, it is designed for rapid prototyping and development, and intended to make exploit writing as simple as possible.

from pwn import *
context(arch = 'i386', os = 'linux')

r = remote('exploitme.example.com', 31337)
# EXPLOIT CODE GOES HERE
r.send(asm(shellcraft.sh()))
r.interactive()

Documentation

Our documentation is available at docs.pwntools.com

To get you started, we’ve provided some example solutions for past CTF challenges in our write-ups repository.

Installation

Pwntools is best supported on 64-bit Ubuntu LTE releases (12.04, 14.04, 16.04 and 18.04). Most functionality should work on any Posix-like distribution (Debian, Arch, FreeBSD, OSX, etc.). Python >= 2.7 is required (Python 3 suggested as best).

Most of the functionality of pwntools is self-contained and Python-only. You should be able to get running quickly with

apt-get update
apt-get install python3 python3-pip python3-dev git libssl-dev libffi-dev build-essential
python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
python3 -m pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/Gallopsled/pwntools.git@dev3

However, some of the features (assembling/disassembling foreign architectures) require non-Python dependencies. For more information, see the complete installation instructions here.
