EmPyre is a pure Python post-exploitation agent built on cryptologically-secure communications and a flexible architecture. It is based heavily on the controller and communication structure of Empire.

The Diffie Hellman implementation is from Mark Loiseau's project here, licensed under version 3.0 of the GNU General Public License.

The AES implementation is adapted from Richard Moore's project here, licensed under the MIT license.

The initial Python launcher code is inspired from MSF's Python Meterpreter launcher here, licensed under the BSD-3-clause license.

The collection/osx/keylogger module was originally written by joev here and licensed under the MSF_LICENSE/BSD 3-clause license.

Key negotiation

The process is as follows:

  1. client runs launcher.py that GETs stager.py from /stage0 launcher.py implements a minimized RC4 decoding stub and negotiation key

  2. server returns RC4(KEYs, stager.py) (key negotiation stager) stager.py contains minimized DH and AES

  3. client generates DH key PUBc, and POSTs HMAC(AES(KEYs, PUBc)) posts to /stage1 server generates a new DH key on each check in

  4. server returns HMAC(AES(KEYs, nonce+PUBs)) client calculates shared DH key KEYn

  5. client POSTs HMAC(AES(KEYn, [nonce+1]+sysinfo) to /stage2

  6. server returns HMAC(AES(KEYn, patched agent.py))

  7. client sleeps on interval, and then GETs /tasking.uri

  8. if no tasking, return standard looking page

  9. if tasking, server returns HMAC(AES(KEYn, tasking))

  10. client posts HMAC(AES(KEYn, tasking)) to /response.uri
