ABOUT
Legion, a fork of SECFORCE's Sparta, is an open source, easy-to-use, super-extensible and semi-automated network penetration testing framework that aids in discovery, reconnaissance and exploitation of information systems. Legion is developed and maintained by GoVanguard. More information about Legion, including the roadmap, can be found on it's project page at https://GoVanguard.io/legion.

FEATURES
Automatic recon and scanning with NMAP, whataweb, nikto, Vulners, Hydra, SMBenum, dirbuster, sslyzer, webslayer and more (with almost 100 auto-scheduled scripts)
Easy to use graphical interface with rich context menus and panels that allow pentesters to quickly find and exploit attack vectors on hosts
Modular functionality allows users to easily customize Legion and automatically call their own scripts/tools
Highly customizable stage scanning for ninja-like IPS evasion
Automatic detection of CPEs (Common Platform Enumeration) and CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures)
Ties CVEs to Exploits as detailed in Exploit-Database
Realtime autosaving of project results and tasks

INSTALLATION
It is preferable to use the docker image over a traditional installation. This is because of all the dependancy requirements and the complications that occur in environments which differ from a clean, non-default installation.

Supported Distributions
Docker runIt script
runIt supports Ubuntu 18, Fedora 30, Parrot and Kali at this time. It is possible to run the docker image on any Linux distribution, however, different distributions have different hoops to jump through to get a docker app to be able to connect to the X server. Eveyone is welcome to try and figure those hoops out and create a PR for runIt.

Traditional Install
We can only promise correct operation on Ubuntu 18 using the traditional installation at this time. While it should work on ParrotOS, Kali and others, until we have Legion packaged and placed into the repos for each of these distros it's musical chairs with reguards to platform updates changing and breaking dependancies.

DOCKER METHOD
Linux with Local X11:

Assumes Docker and X11 are installed and setup (including running docker commands as a non-root user)

It is crititcal to follow all the instructions for running as a non-root user. Skipping any of them will result in complications getting docker to communicate with the X server

See detailed instructions to setup docker here and enable running containers as non-root users and granting docker group ssh rights here

Within Terminal:

git clone https://github.com/GoVanguard/legion.git
cd legion/docker
chmod +x runIt.sh
./runIt.sh
Linux with Remote X11:

Assumes Docker and X11 are installed and setup
Replace X.X.X.X with the IP of the remote running X11.
Within Terminal:
git clone https://github.com/GoVanguard/legion.git
cd legion/docker
chmod +x runIt.sh
./runIt.sh X.X.X.X
Windows under WSL using Xming and Docker Desktop:

Assumes Xming is installed in Windows
Assumes Docker Desktop is installed in Windows, Docker Desktop is running in Linux containers mode and Docker Desktop is connected to WSL
See detailed instructions here
Replace X.X.X.X with the IP with which Xming has registered itself.
Right click Xming in system tray -> View log and see IP next to "XdmcpRegisterConnection: newAddress"
Within Terminal:
git clone https://github.com/GoVanguard/legion.git
cd legion/docker
sudo chmod +x runIt.sh
sudo ./runIt.sh X.X.X.X
Windows using Xming and Docker Desktop without WSL:

Why? Don't do this. :)
OSX using XQuartz:

Not yet in runIt.sh script.
Possible to setup using socat. See instructions here: https://kartoza.com/en/blog/how-to-run-a-linux-gui-application-on-osx-using-docker/
Setup Docker on Linux:

To install docker components typically needed and add setup the environment for docker, under a term, run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y docker.io python-pip -y
sudo groupadd docker
pip install --user docker-compose
Setup Docker to allow non-root users:

To enable non-root users to run docker commands, under a term, run:
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
sudo chmod 666 /var/run/docker.sock
sudo xhost +local:docker
Setup Hyper-V, Docker Desktop, Xming and WSL:

The order is important for port reservation reasons. If you have WSL, HyperV or Docker Desktop installed then please uninstall those features before proceeding.
Cortana / Search -> cmd -> Right click -> Run as Administrator
To reserve the docker port, under CMD, run:
netsh int ipv4 add excludedportrange protocol=tcp startport=2375 numberofports=1
This will likely fail if you have Hyper-V already enabled or Docker Desktop installed
To install Hyper-V, under CMD, run:
dism.exe /Online /Enable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V /All
Reboot
Cortana / Search -> cmd -> Right click -> Run as Administrator
To install WSL, under CMD, run:
dism.exe /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux
Reboot
Download from https://hub.docker.com/editions/community/docker-ce-desktop-windows (Free account required)
Run installer
Optionally input your docker hub login
Right click Docker Desktop in system tray -> Switch to Linux containers
If it says Switch to Windows containers then skip this step, it's already using Linux containers
Right click Docker Desktop in system tray -> Settings
General -> Expose on localhost without TLS
Download https://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/files/Xming/6.9.0.31/Xming-6-9-0-31-setup.exe/download
Run installer and select multi window mode
Open Microsoft Store
Install Kali, Ubuntu or one of the other WSL Linux Distributions
Open the distribution, let it bootstrap and fill in the user creation details
To install docker components typically needed and add setup the environment for docker redirection, under the WSL window, run:
curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) stable"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y docker-ce python-pip -y
sudo apt autoremove
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
pip install --user docker-compose
echo "export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://localhost:2375" >> ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc
Test docker is reachable with:
docker images
TRADITIONAL METHOD
Please use the docker image where possible! It's becoming very difficult to support all the various platforms and their own quirks
Assumes Ubuntu, Kali or Parrot Linux is being used with Python 3.6 installed.
Within Terminal:
git clone https://github.com/GoVanguard/legion.git
cd legion
sudo chmod +x startLegion.sh
sudo ./startLegion.sh

Can we target 2019.3 or 2019.4 / 2020 release for inclusion?

I started to work on this package. I didn't find big issues so far. I think it can be ready soon (before 2019.4 release)

I have a question about the Kali installation. Why do you do this? (what was the issue?)
    echo "renameat2() work around for libQt5Core.so.5 and cutycapt"
    strip --remove-section=.note.ABI-tag /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5

We can't do such a thing in the Kali package. But if the issue is still present, we can work on it to fix it.

The purpose of "strip --remove-section=.note.ABI-tag /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5" is to strip the library of the ABI-Tag kernel requirement.

This is only available in kernel > 3.15. So if the kernel is newer than this then this line can be omitted.

If not already in the legion deps, please add the "xvfb" package to the legion dependencies.

We had xvfb missing from our installDep.sh script. Without xvfb, the screenshot functionality won't work.

Thanks

@GoVanguardMH, as I can see "xvfb" is always in legion's dependencies.
