@aydinnyunus Thank you for your work on the packaging.
I started to work on this to upload it in Kali.

But I have one question: the LICENSE file is empty, the license Apache-2 is mentioned in the README but you mentioned GPL-3.0 in debian/copyright. Which license applies to this tool?
It would be great to complete the LICENSE file.

Hi @sbrun,

I complete the LICENSE file as Apache-2.
