The main purpose of Faraday is to re-use the available tools in the community to take advantage of them in a multiuser way.

You break it. We keep track of the pieces!

To maximize flexibility Faraday Plugins run only on the client, which means you can have custom, private plugins all for yourself!

There are three kinds of plugins available for Faraday; console, report and API also called online. However, these are not mutually exclusive, meaning that some tools have more than one Plugin to process their output. For example, Nmap has a Console plugin which allows you to run it directly from ZSH, but it also has a Report one, in order to import scans that were run outside of Faraday.


Check Faraday-Cli to use this feature!

Plugins that intercept commands, fired directly when a command is detected in the console. These are transparent to you and no additional action on your part is needed.


Use the web UI to import reports. Check this Article!


Plugin connectors or online (BeEF, Metasploit, Burp), these connect to external APIs or databases, or talk directly to Faraday's API.


If you think your favourite tool is missing code your own plugin or ask us to do it!

The following table contains name, id, command or report, in the case of command it is that the command can be used inside faraday-cli and it gets imported into faraday after the run, for report it means that the file can be imported in the Faraday IU.
