CyberChef is a simple, intuitive web app for carrying out all manner of "cyber" operations within a web browser. These operations include simple encoding like XOR or Base64, more complex encryption like AES, DES and Blowfish, creating binary and hexdumps, compression and decompression of data, calculating hashes and checksums, IPv6 and X.509 parsing, changing character encodings, and much more.
Here are some examples of fancy hax0r tricks you can do with CyberChef:
- Decode a Base64-encoded string
- Decrypt and disassemble shellcode
- Perform AES decryption, extracting the IV from the beginning of the cipher stream
- Automagically detect several layers of nested encoding
Here's a live demo!
- Docker swarm cluster with persistent shared storage
- Traefik configured per design
- DNS entry for the hostname you intend to use (or a wildcard), pointed to your keepalived IP
CyberChef Docker Swarm config
CyberChef doesn't require any persistent storage, or fancy configuration, so simply create a docker swarm config file in docker-compose syntax (v3), something like the example below:
Fast-track with premix! 🚀
I automatically and instantly share (with my sponsors) a private "premix" git repository, which includes necessary docker-compose and env files for all published recipes. This means that sponsors can launch any recipe with just a
git pull and a
docker stack deploy 👍.
🚀 Update: Premix now includes an ansible playbook, so that sponsors can deploy an entire stack + recipes, with a single ansible command! (more here)

Cyber the Chef!
Launch your CyberChef stack by running
docker stack deploy cyberchef -c <path -to-docker-compose.yml>, and then visit the URL you chose to begin the hackery!
