Functionality at a glance

The Packet Squirrel is a high-performance headless Linux mini-computer, optimised for network operations.

Out-of-the box, the Pocket Squirrel is configured to provide fully-featured packet sniffing, DNS Spoofing, Reverse Shell / VPN, and a root shell access.

Central to the Packet Squirrel is its 4-way switch: Each switch position represents a configurable mode of operation. Flick the switch and trigger a specific payload. The configurable push-button and RGB LED provides instant incognito deployment and feedback of payloads.

Fully scriptable, and backed by Hak5's library of payloads, the Packet Squirrel is the perfect tool for Penetration Testers, System Administrators or Power-Users.

Inconspicuous and compact, it is designed to blend into the background when attached to a target network.

Securely tunnel to inside your trusted networks via OpenSSH from anywhere.
