goldeneye - HTTP DoS test tool
goldeneye <URL> [OPTIONS]
GoldenEye is a HTTP DoS Test Tool. This tool can be used to test if a site is susceptible to Deny of Service (DoS) attacks. Is possible to open several parallel connections against a URL to check if the web server can be compromised.
The program tests the security in networks and uses 'HTTP Keep Alive + NoCache' as attack vector.
