This extension provides a command-line interface to automate the process of configuring target scope, spidering and scanning.

To use, install the BApp, ensure the Extender option to automatically reload extensions on startup is enabled, and gracefully shut down Burp.

You can then initiate Carbonator by launching Burp from the command line as follows:

java -jar -Xmx2g path/to/burp.jar scheme fqdn port folder

For example:

java -jar -Xmx2g path/to/burp.jar http localhost 80 /folder

Carbonator will then perform the following actions:

  • Add the specified target to Burp's target scope, if needed.
  • Spider the target.
  • Actively scan the target.
  • Generate a scan report in HTML format.
  • Shut down Burp.

You can also use Carbonator with Burp running in headless mode.
