BetterCAP is a powerful, flexible and portable tool created to perform various types of MITM attacks against a network, manipulate HTTP, HTTPS and TCP traffic in real-time, sniff for credentials and much more.
In this repository, BetterCAP is containerized using Alpine Linux - a security-oriented, lightweight Linux distribution based on musl libc and busybox. The resulting Docker image is relatively small and easy to manage the dependencies.
Pull latest BetterCAP version of the image:
$ docker pull gowthamsadasivam/docker-bettercap
Pull a specific BetterCAP version of the image: (ex. 1.5.4)
$ docker pull gowthamsadasivam/docker-bettercap:1.5.4
Access to all network interfaces of the HOST machine:
$ docker run -it --privileged --net=host -p 8080:8080 gowthamsadasivam/docker-bettercap:1.5.4 -T 192.168.0.3 -I wlan0 --proxy -X --no-spoofing
Access only within the docker0 (bridged) interface:
$ docker run -it -p 8080:8080 gowthamsadasivam/docker-bettercap:1.5.4 -T 172.17.0.3 --proxy -X --no-spoofing
Usage & Options
-it => Provides interactive shell, where you can see the BetterCAP output.
--privileged => Provides privileged user permissions to the user within the container so that BetterCAP can have access to the HOST machine network interfaces and iptables. This option is a MUST to keep BetterCAP function properly.
--net=host => Makes all the HOST machine network interfaces visible/accessible inside the Docker container.

-I wlan0 => By default BetterCAP will automatically detect your network interface and use it. But in-case, if you want to make it use another interface ( when you have more than one, let’s say eth0 and wlan0 ) you can use this option.
--proxy => Enables BetterCAP in-built HTTP proxy. By default it will run the proxy in port 8080.
-X => Enables BetterCAP sniffing feature.
--no-spoofing => A gentle way to avoid flooding the entire network in order to MiTM everyone. This keeps you look around without being too noisy or disruptive.
