At the moment exchanging data between pentest tools it is far too difficult.

So ... the purpose of this project is to define a simple, open format for exchanging data between pentest tools!

Involvement is encouraged, so if you would like to contribute to this project then please join the mailing list and / or contact one of the project leaders.


The format must be open, and licensed so that it can be adopted by all products, whether open, closed, free or commercial.

It must be as simple to adopt as possible, and ideally based on existing open formats.


The high level roadmap is:

  1. Psiinon to document a strawman proposal
  2. All - rip the strawman to pieces and agree an improved format
  3. Finalize DEF v1.0
  4. Supporting project leaders to adopt the format in their tools
  5. Publicize and drive adoption in other tools
  6. Learn from our experiences and start on the next version, repeat ;)


This tab will document a strawman proposal for all concerned to rip to pieces :)

Supporting projects

The following project leaders have agreed to support this format and (once it has been agreed) adopt it within their projects.
