This is the project website of Inguma, a penetration testing and vulnerability research toolkit. Here you will find documentation, links, notes about the project, news, etc...

While the current exploitation capabilities in Inguma may be limited, this program provides numerous tools for information gathering and target auditing. Inguma is still being heavily developed so be sure to stay current and check back for news and updates.

Don't forget our development blog!

Helping with the project

We benefit from any help you can put in Inguma: documentation, bug reports, patches, everything. In order to start, please click in the "Register" link in the upper right corner, and create a Redmine account. With it you'll be able to create issues, and if you're involved with the project, eventually modify the wiki, issues and have commit access. See Development just below.


We use Mercurial at Inguma. In order to get a read-only access to the Mercurial repository, where all the development happens, just type:

hg clone

We strongly recommend that prospective developers use this method for writing code against current HEAD/trunk/tip/latest code.

Mailing lists

Inguma actually maintains two mailing lists:

inguma-announce (at) This is a list for important announcements, like new software releases.
inguma-devel (at) This is the list where all the development happens. Every developer is subscribed. It will act as the user support list for the time being.

Becoming a developer

If you want to become a developer, please start by sending patches for:
  • adding new features, preferably if they are from the Roadmap.
  • fixing bugs that have been already reported.
  • lack of documentation.

After a few patches, please contact us at for a restricted shell account. You will need a checkout through SSH, so type:

hg clone ssh:// (yes, the two slashes are on purpose).

And you're done!

Ideas for future development

As Inguma is an open source project, it can only be as good as the community wants. Please feel free to assist not only the developers but also the community and lend your expertise by reporting bugs and contributing to the mailing list.
