GoldenEye is a HTTP DoS test tool. This software is distributed under the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPLv3). GoldenEye is a HTTP/S Layer 7 Denial-of-Service Testing Tool. It uses KeepAlive (and Connection: keep-alive) paired with Cache-Control options to persist socket connection busting through caching (when possible) until it consumes all available sockets on the HTTP/S server.
This project started by the influence of Barry Shteiman who created HULK, a Proof-of-concept tool that I decided to improve which later became GoldenEye. Kudos for you Barry! This software is written in purely Python.
