Taipan Components

Taipanis composed of four main components:

Web Application fingerprinter

it inspects the given application in order to identify if it is a COTS application. If so, it extracts the identified version. This components is very important since it allows to identify vulnerable web applications.

Hidden Resource Discovery

this component scans the application in order to identify resources that are not directly navigable or that shouldn’t be accessed, like secret pages or test pages.


This component navigates the web site in order to provide to the other components a list of pages to analyze. It allows to mutate the request in order to find not so common pathes.

Vulnerability Scanner

this component probes the web application and tries to identify possible vulnerabilities. It is composed of various AddOn in order to easily expand its Knowledge Base. It is also in charge for the identification of know vulnerabilities which are defined by the user.
