Package to manage repeaters and their lifecycle.

Repeaters are mandatory for scanning targets on a local network. More info about repeaters.


$ dotnet add package SecTester.Repeater


To establish a secure connection between the Bright cloud engine and a target on a local network, you just need to use the IRepeaterFactory constructed with Configuration instance.

var repeaterFactory = serviceProvider.GetService<IRepeaterFactory>();

The factory exposes the CreateRepeater method that returns a new Repeater instance:

await using var repeater = await repeaterFactory.CreateRepeater();

You can customize some properties, e.g. name prefix or description, passing options as follows:

await using var repeater = await repeaterFactory.CreateRepeater(new RepeaterOptions {
  NamePrefix = 'my-repeater',
  Description = 'My repeater'

The CreateRepeater method accepts the options described below:

Option Description
namePrefix Enter a name prefix that will be used as a constant part of the unique name. By default, sectester.
description Set a short description of the Repeater.
requestRunnerOptions Custom the request runner settings that will be used to execute requests to your application.

The default requestRunnerOptions is as follows:

    "timeout": 30000, 
    "maxContentLength": 100,
    "reuseConnection": false,
    "allowedMimes": [

The RequestRunnerOptions exposes the following options that can used to customize the request runner's behavior: RequestRunnerOptions.cs

The Repeater instance provides the Start method. This method is required to establish a connection with the Bright cloud engine and interact with other services.

await repeater.Start();

To dispose of the connection, stop accepting any incoming commands, and handle events, you can call the Stop method if the Repeater instance is started:

await repeater.Stop();

Repeater instance also has a RepeaterId field, that is required to start a new scan for local targets.

Usage in unit tests

There are multiple strategies of how to run a repeater: before-all or before-each (recommended). The two most viable options are running before all the tests vs running before every single test.

Below you can find the implementation of before-each strategy:

public class ScanTests: IAsyncDisposable, IAsyncLifetime
  // ...
  private readonly Repeater _repeater;

  public ScanTests()
    // ...
    var repeaterFactory = serviceProvider.GetService<IRepeaterFactory>();
    _repeater = repeaterFactory.CreateRepeater();

  public async Task InitializeAsync()
     await _repeater.Start();

  public async ValueTask DisposeAsync()
    await _repeater.DisposeAsync();


  public void BeNotVulnerable()
    // run scan of local target passing `repeater.repeaterId` to scan config

Implementation details

Under the hood Repeater uses the IRequestRunner to proceed with request:

public interface IRequestRunner
  Protocol Protocol

Task<IResponse> Run(IRequest request);

The package provide a single RequestRunner implementations for HTTP protocol. To add support for other protocols, new implementation of IRequestRunner should be registered in the IoC container:

collection.AddScoped<IRequestRunner, CustomProtocolRequestRunner>();
