Pwntools is an immensely powerful framework used primarily for binary exploitation, but I have also used it for an challenges that require sockets due to how simplified such interactions are with it.

Here we will be using the python version of pwntools, though there is also a Ruby version.


The installation is as simple as it can be with python.

pip3 install pwntools


Unfortunately many features of pwntools are not available on Windows as it uses the _curses module, which is not available for Windows.
