Archery is an opensource vulnerability assessment and management tool which helps developers and pentesters to perform scans and manage vulnerabilities. Archery uses popular opensource tools to perform comprehensive scanning for web application and network. It also performs web application dynamic authenticated scanning and covers the whole applications by using selenium. The developers can also utilize the tool for implementation of their DevOps CI/CD environment.


Overview of the tool



You can follow the instructions to install OpenVAS from Hacker Target

Note that, at this time, Archery generates a TCP connection towards the OpenVAS Manager (not the GSA): therefore, you need to update your OpenVAS Manager configuration to bind this port. Its default port (9390/tcp), but you can update this in your settings.


Also known as Zaproxy. Simply download and install the matching package for your distro from the official Github Page.

Systemd service file is available in the project.

Burp Scanner

Follow the instruction in order to enable Burp REST API.

Configure REST API endpoint in ArcherySec Settings


Simply install SSLScan from your package manager.


Simply install Nikto from your package manager.

NMAP Vulners

Simply get the NSE file to the proper directory:

cd /usr/share/nmap/scripts/
sudo wget

Restrict ArcherySec signup page on production.


export TIME_ZONE='Asia/Kolkata'

$ git clone
$ cd archerysec
$ NAME=User [email protected] [email protected] bash
$ ./

Windows installation

set TIME_ZONE='Asia/Kolkata'

$ git clone
$ cd archerysec
$ setup.bat
$ run.bat

Note on installation for developers and contributors

If you wish to contribute to the project, make sure you are using requirements-dev.txt and run this command once you have installed the requirements

pre-commit install

This will automatically check for code linting and rules used on this project and if everything is correct, the commit will be made.

Note on manual and automated installation

If you are running the code directly without setting DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE, this will default to using archerysec.settings.base. all defaults will be used in this case and for customizing options you can copy to

Docker option should use environment variables to set different settings of the container.

Docker Installation

ArcherySec Docker is available from ArcherySec Docker

$ docker pull archerysec/archerysec
$ docker run -e NAME=user -e [email protected] -e PAS[email protected] -it -p 8000:8000 archerysec/archerysec:latest

Docker Alpine image

$ docker pull archerysec/archerysec:alpine
$ docker run -e NAME=user -e [email protected] -e PA[email protected] -it -p 8000:8000 archerysec/archerysec:alpine

For persistence

docker run -it -p 8000:8000 -v :/archerysec archerysec/archerysec:latest

Using ArcherySec through docker compose

This is the simplest way to get things running. For the time being the docker-compose.yml is focused on development configuration but with some changes you can get a production ready definition.

Running the following command will get you all the services up, creates a postgres db and connects ArcherySec with it.

$ docker-compose up -d

Configure Serverless on AWS

Deploy ArcherySec as a Serverless on AWS using Zappa

Environment variables for this project

The following environment variables are used to change behaviour of the container settings


export TIME_ZONE='Asia/Kolkata'


Database password for the postgres db server


Database user for the postgres db server


Database name for the postgres db server


Django setting to use. currently this can be set to archerysecurity.settings.development or archerysecurity.settings.production depending on your needs


Always generate and set a secret key for you project. Tools like this one can be used for this purpose


Set this variable to 1 if debug should be enabled


This variable is used to tell the container it has to behave as a worker to process tasks
and not as a web server running on port 8000. Set it to True if you want to run on
this mode.


export EMAIL_HOST=''


export EMAIL_USE_TLS=True

Set this variable to True or False


export EMAIL_PORT=587

Set this variable to SMTP port.


export EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD='password'

Set this variable to SMTP Password.


export EMAIL_HOST_USER='[email protected]'

Set this variable to SMTP Email.
