Summary0004732: badtouch - Scriptable network authentication cracker
DescriptionName: badtouch
Version: 0.5.1
License: GNU 3 (
Description: Scriptable network authentication cracker

badtouch is a scriptable network authentication cracker. While the space for common service bruteforce is already very well saturated, you may still end up writing your own python scripts when testing credentials for web applications.

The scope of badtouch is specifically cracking custom services. This is done by writing scripts that are loaded into a lua runtime. Those scripts represent a single service and provide a verify(user, password) function that returns either true or false. Concurrency, progress indication and reporting is magically provided by the badtouch runtime.
Additional InformationI've successfully built and tested badtouch on kali 2018.2, the following packages are needed to build it:

- cargo
- libssl-dev
- pkg-config

While libssl is a runtime dependency as well.

The binary can be built using:

    cargo build --release

After the build finished, the binary is located at target/release/badtouch. For further reference, the PKGBUILD for archlinux looks like this:

Not sure what the real value of this would be.

Please could you provide more use cases/examples of the tools
