What’s Patton

Patton is a set of tools for helping admins and security auditors to search for vulnerabilities in software components. Currently it has 2 main modules:

  • Patton-server: A service that builds a knowledge database about vulnerability information (CVEs). This information is then linked with product details (CPE) to finally allow to ask in a very clever way.
  • Patton-cli: A powerful command line client that allows to extract and check for vulnerabilities in your systems in a many different ways.


You can find Patton’s documentation at Read the Docs.
