    recently i decided to try out Cobalt Strike for armitage.
    armitage is a for the most part a smart metasploit gui used in windows, mac OS, and Linux.
    (known for being included in backtrack & kali linux)

    For a full list of features please visit

    you can request a 21 day trial for Cobalt Strike and it will ask you to download a package.

    Install Cobalt Strike on Kali Linux:li:


    Kali Linux ships with the dependencies needed to use Cobalt Strike. The Metasploit Framework and Java are already setup for you.
    Installation Steps

    1. Start and stop the Metasploit service (this will setup your database.yml file for you)
      service metasploit start
      service metasploit stop
    2. Extract cobaltstrike-trial.tgz
      tar zxvf cobaltstrike-trial.tgz
    How to run

    1. Start the postgresql database (this is not automatic)
      service postgresql start
    2. Run Cobalt Strike
    3. Press Connect
    4. Press Yes when asked to start Metasploit
    If you can't get Cobalt Strike to run, review our troubleshooting steps for more help.
    How to update the Metasploit® Framework

    Use msfupdate to update to the latest stable snapshot of the Metasploit® Framework. These stable snapshots are blessed by the Metasploit® team, not Strategic Cyber. Generally, they're compatible with Cobalt Strike and you shouldn't experience a problem.
    If an incompatability occurs, you may need to uninstall the Metasploit® Framework and reinstall it without the updates. If this is necessary, a note will go out to the Cobalt Strike Technical Notes Mailing List. Make sure you're subscribed.
