The installation of
expliot is straight-forward. At the moment there are
two options available. If you choose to download the archive then you are not
able to quick update to the latest version.
Make sure that your system has Python 3 available.
expliot only runs with
Python 3. Also, there are a couple of other packages needed to compile various
bits and pieces.
$ sudo dnf -y install redhat-rpm-config libusb glib2-devel python3 python3-devel
Ubuntu (Kali Linux, Lubuntu, etc.)¶
$ sudo apt-get install git libusb-1.0 libglib2.0-dev python3 python3-dev python3-setuptools
$ sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0 libglib2.0-dev python3 python3-dev python3-setuptools build-essential
All requirements are shipped by default.
It might be possible to make an installation but requires at lot of effort
because the system is using musl and
pycrypto heavily depends on Glib.
Visit the EXPLIoT repository at GitLab and download the archive of your choice. After pressing the icon with the cloud and the arrow you can set the archive type. After the download unpack it.
Or use the command line:
$ curl -O https://gitlab.com/expliot_framework/expliot/-/archive/master/expliot-master.tar.gz $ tar -xzf expliot-master.tar.gz $ mv expliot-master expliot
Change into the
expliot directory and start the installation.
$ cd expliot $ python3 setup.py install --user
Checkout from git¶
The fastest way to get a copy of
expliot is to clone the Git repository.
$ git clone https://gitlab.com/expliot_framework/expliot.git $ cd expliot $ python3 setup.py install --user
For system-wide installation, you can use
sudo and not use
$ git clone https://gitlab.com/expliot_framework/expliot.git $ cd expliot $ sudo python3 setup.py install
If you are performing the installation as
root, e.g., on Kali Linux,
then don’t use
# git clone https://gitlab.com/expliot_framework/expliot.git # cd expliot # python3 setup.py install
On some older debian-based systems like Ubuntu and its derivatives it might be needed that you adjust your
$PATHenvironment variable to include
Debian-based live systems, including the latest Kali Linux, running live have some limitations. Again, the executables in
~/.localwere not found. This means that you have to adjust your
$PATHenvironment variable or use
BlackArch Linux users need to create an additional user to install EXPLIoT. Don’t use
rootfor the installation.
If you are using Ubuntu then you need to logout and login after the installation.
