The Infection Monkey project supports many popular OSes (but we can always do more).
The Monkey itself (the agent) has been tested to run on the following operating systems (on x64 architecture)
Compatibility depends on GLIBC version (2.14+)1. By default these distributions are supported:
The Monkey Island (control server) runs out of the box on:
We provide a dockerfile from our website that lets the Monkey Island run inside a container.
Some Older machines still get a partial compatibility as in they get exploited and reported, but monkey can’t run on them. So instead of monkey, old machine bootloader (small c program) is ran, which reports some minor info like network interface configuration, GLIBC version, OS and so on.
Old machine bootloader also has a GLIBC 2.14+ requirement for linux, because bootloader is included into pyinstaller bootloader which uses python3.7, which in turn requires GLIBC 2.14+. If you think partial support for older machines is important, don’t hesitate to open a new issue about it.
Old machine bootloader runs on machines with:
GLIBC >= 2.14 requirement comes from the fact that monkey is built using this GLIBC version and GLIBC is not backwards compatible. We are also limited to the oldest GLIBC version compatible with ptyhon3.7 ↩︎
