Docker build for Arachni scanner
Arachni is a feature-full, modular, high-performance Ruby framework aimed towards helping penetration testers and administrators evaluate the security of modern web applications. see the good work here: www.arachni-scanner.com
The default sqlite deployment has many limitations as described on the arachni webui landing page. This image has been preconfigured to used postgres as the dateabase to overcome these limitations.
treadie/arachni:latest - arachni framework v1.5.1 & webui v0.5.12
treadie/arachni:1.4-0.5.10 - arachni framework v1.4 & webui v0.5.10
This image relies on a seperate and running postgres instance. The easiest way of doing this is using the official postgres Docker image
docker pull postgres
Configure postgres for arachni
docker run --name postgres -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=secret -e POSTGRES_USER=arachni -e POSTGRES_DB=arachni_production -d postgres
Feel free to manipulate and modify the above command for production environments as you see fit. I plan to create a compose file to automate this whole process, but not there yet.
To pull this image from the Docker registry, open a shell prompt and enter:
docker pull treadie/arachni
Run a container from the image with the following command:
docker run -t --name arachni --link postgres -p 9292:9292 treadie/arachni
If this is the first time it has been run then starup will throw a warning as the
arachni_production database has not been setup using
arachni_web_task db:setup this also means the webui will not load. to resolve this issue, run the following command:
docker exec -i /opt/arachni/bin/arachni_web_task db:setup arachni
Note: Use the command above with caution. It's designed to setup a clean and default database. if you have scan data in your database and run this command it will be removed!
The database configuration settings for Arachni are configured by environment variables. By default they have been preconfigured with what comes out of the box from the Arachni developers. The variables of interest for this image are (with their default values):
Manipulate as required by starting the image using
-e for example:
docker run --name arachni --link postgres -e POSTGRES_HOST=server.com -p 9292:9292 treadie/arachni
- Clone repo
- Go to repo dir
docker build -t "treadie/arachni" .
docker history treadie/arachni
docker build -t "treadie/arachni:latest" -t "treadie/arachni:1.4-0.5.10" .
