The idea is to be able to automate the entire penetration testing cycle and possibly even produce a report. Auxiliary modules are discussed in Chapter 4. A complete list of the available modules within the framework is available by issuing the show all command from within the msfconsole interface. More information on any given exploit, payload, NOP generator, or encoder is available using the info from the console interface. 0 version of the MSF. As compared with modules, plugins are designed to change the framework itself.

The built-in commands available with the Meterpreter shell illustrate this by allowing arbitrary commands to be executed on the exploited system, uploading and downloading various files, as well as configuring port forwarding in a manner similar to Secure Shell’s (SSH’s) port-forwarding mechanism.
