Summary : XFLTReaT is an open-source tunnelling framework that handles all the boring stuff and offers the capability to the users to take care of only those things that matter. It provides significant improvements over existing tools. From now on there is no need to write a new tunnel for each and every protocol or to deal with interfaces and routing. Any protocol can be converted to a module, which works in a plug-and-play fashion; authentication and encryption can be configured and customised on all traffic and it is also worth mentioning that the framework was designed to be easy to configure, use and develop. In case there is a need to send packets over ICMP, RDP or SSH then this can be done in a matter of minutes, instead of developing a new tool from scratch. The potential use (or abuse) cases are plentiful, such as bypassing network restrictions of an ISP, the proxy of a workplace or obtaining Internet connectivity through bypassing captive portals in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean or at an altitude of 12km on an airplane.This framework is not just a tool; it unites different technologies in the field of tunnelling. It will be show how to tunnel data over a Windows jumpbox utilising RDP (including the dirty low level "secrets") or how to exfiltrate data over ICMP from barely secured networks. We have simplified the whole process and created a framework that is responsible for everything but the communication itself, we rethought the old way of tunnelling and tried to give something new to the community. After the initial setup the framework takes care of everything. With the check functionality we can even find out, which module can be used on the network, there is no need for any low-level packet fu and hassle. I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with the tool and the talk, actually you will be richer with an open-source tool.
