Tsunami is a general purpose network security scanner for detecting high severity vulnerabilities.

We offer “Tsunami - Security Scanner” to go live Tsunami on Azure.

Main feature of Tsunami - security scanner

  • Installed Tsunami
  • Perform batch scan for multiple target hosts
  • Provided as Azure virtual machine image.

System requirements

  • Allows users to log in to the virtual machine (e.g. ssh)

How to introduction

Access to “Create Tsunami - security scanner” and Create.

Network Security Group (NSG) is applied to the virtual machine NIC.
The following rules have been added to the NSG inbound security rules:

  • Allow ssh(TCP/22) from any source

Recommend that change this NSG settings. (If you want to allow connections only from where you need them.)

If you want to perform a security scan on a host with an IPv6 address, you cannot deploy it from Azure Portal at this time.

How to use

Connect to and operate the deployed virtual machine. (e.g. ssh)

Security checks are performed on multiple hosts

  • Configuration for the security scan target hosts
    Add the list of hosts to be scanned for security to each file in ~/conf, with one line per host.

    • Host name : hostname_list.conf
    • IPv4 address : ipv4_list.conf
    • IPv6 address : ipv6_list.conf


    • ~/conf/hostname_list.conf
    • ~/conf/ipv4_list.conf
    • ~/conf/ipv6_list.conf
  • Execute of the Tsunami
    Execute ~/ to start security checks on multiple hosts.

    $ ./

  • Confirmation of scan results The results of the scan and a list of vulnerabilities are output to ~/YYYYmmdd-HHMMSS.log/ directory.

    • Scan result : {host}.json
    • Vulnerabilities detected : ValunerabilitySummary.json

Perform security checks on a single host

In the ~/tsunami directory, execute the following example.

$ cd ~/tsunami
$ java -cp "${JAR_FILENAME}:${WD}/plugins/*" \
    -Dtsunami-config.location=${WD}/tsunami.yaml \ \
    --ip-v4-target= \
    --scan-results-local-output-format=JSON \
