C2-Cloud | A Robust Web-Based C2 Framework, Designed To Simplify The Life Of Penetration Testers


About The Project

The C2 Cloud is a robust web-based C2 framework, designed to simplify the life of penetration testers. It allows easy access to compromised backdoors, just like accessing an EC2 instance in the AWS cloud. It can manage several simultaneous backdoor sessions with a user-friendly interface.

C2 Cloud is open source. Security analysts can confidently perform simulations, gaining valuable experience and contributing to the proactive defense posture of their organizations.

Reverse shells support:

  1. Reverse TCP
  2. Reverse HTTP
  3. Reverse HTTPS (configure it behind an LB)
  4. Telegram C2
