Summary0007248: PSGraphQL - PowerShell module, allows for testing GraphQL endpoints

[Name] - PSGraphQL

[Version] - What version of the tool should be added?

    Version 1.1.5

[Homepage] - Where can the tool be found online? Where to go to get more information?


[Download] - Where to go to get the tool? either a download page or a link to the latest version

         Can be installed from the PowerShell Gallery by executing the following command from pwsh:

         Install-Module -Name PSGraphQL -Repository PSGallery -RequiredVersion 1.1.5


[Author] - Who made the tool?
Anthony Guimelli

[Licence] - How is the software distributed? What conditions does it come with?

        The software is distributed via the PowerShell Gallery and/or direct download from the module's github repo. MIT license applies:

[Description] - What is the tool about? What does it do?

            PSGraphQL contains a single PowerShell function, Invoke-GraphQLQuery (aliased as ‘gql’) that allows a tester to perform queries and mutations (create, update, delete) operations against any GraphQL service. Based on that, a myriad of tests can be written using Invoke-GraphQLQuery to validate the security of a GraphQL endpoint including, but not limited to:

1. Deep recursion attack
2. Batch attacks
3. Introspection/enumeration
4. SQL injection
5. Command Injection
6. Authorization attacks

Given that PowerShell is an object-oriented shell, Invoke-GraphQLQuery returns objects by default. This affords the user easy parsing of results. If one wishes for serialized (JSON) results, the -Raw parameter changes the return type from object to string and the results can be piped to grep or whatever other string parsing utility.

[Dependencies] - What is needed for the tool to work?

PowerShell 5.1 or above. Since Kali Linux comes with PowerShell 7.1.3, this will suffice. This module was developed on PowerShell 7.1.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 and tested on Ubuntu 20.04, Kali Linux 2021.1, Windows 10 and MacOS.

[Similar tools] - What other tools are out there?

Burp has a GraphQL plugin and Python has a few GraphQL clients. This is the only PowerShell module in the PowerShell Gallery that functions as a generic GraphQL client. Also I've yet to find another object-oriented CLI GraphQL client like this one.

[Activity] - When did the project start? Is is still actively being deployed?

               This project started on 3/2021 and is being actively deployed.

[How to install] - How do you compile it? Note, using source code to acquire (e.g. git clone/svn checkout) can’t be used - Also downloading from the head. Please use a “tag” or “release” version.

This is a PowerShell module written in 100% PowerShell. To that end, compilation is not necessary. To obtain and use the module type the following from PowerShell in Kali Linux:

Install-Module -Name PSGraphQL -Repository PSGallery -RequiredVersion 1.1.5

[How to use] - What are some basic commands/functions to demonstrate it?

Demonstration of Invoke-GraphQLQuery can be found in the "Examples" and "Damn Vulnerable GraphQL Application Solutions" sections in the Readme here:

If needed I can copy them here but the formatting and clarity will be lost compared to what is shown in the above markdown.

[Packaged] - Is the tool already packaged for Debian?

This tool is packaged for any system running PowerShell 5.1 and above.

Steps To Reproduce


Additional Information

I would be glad to demonstrate the module and answer any questions if needed.
