Burp Carbonator does not work for me

Rohil Subramanian Sep 21, 2017 06:47PM UTC

I am trying to play around with the carbonator feature of Burp using the demo.testfire application as a test run and had a few questions and issues.

I have installed carbonator and using the command " java -jar <path to burp> 80". However, this just opens the Burp instance and does not do anything. Is there anything that I am missing out on?

Does Carbonator do an authenticated scan? If yes, how?

Hi Rohil,

The Cabonator command line is slightly different to what you’ve used. Try this:

java -jar path/to/burp.jar http 80 /bank/login.aspx

If that doesn’t work, go to Extender > Extensions > Carbonator > Errors – you may get an error message explaining what’s wrong.

For authenticated scans, first configure Spider with credentials and confirm that Spider is logging in correctly. The relevant area is Spider > Options > Application login.

Then click the cog icon next to Application Login, choose Save options and select “auth”.

You can then start Burp like this:

java jar path/to/burp.jar-config-file=auth.json http 80 /bank/login.aspx

It may take some experimentation, but you can get authenticated Carbonator scans working this way.
