A cross-platform note-taking & target-tracking app for penetration testers built on ElectronJS.





We’re aiming to release a number of checklists with v0.3 release. Please send the request here to join in private-repo to collaborate with other researchers on its development. In meantime, you can download the below checklists to import in your libraries:

You can also download the code to generate this checklist whenever any updates are available in the original repository.

🐛 Reporting a bug?

This is very early days of this project, therefore unexpected bugs, UI glitches and data-corruptions related issues may occur. I’d personally and strongly recommend to keep taking backups daily to not to loose any data if something bad happens.

Before reporting a bug or glitch, please confirm if it is not previously reported. Give most possible information about the issue: reproduction steps, OS/environments specifics and any possible suggestions to fix it.

You can use this link to create and file an issue.

🚨 Reporting a security vulnerability?

Swiftness project was initially started to combat my day-to-day personal issues related to managing findings and checklist and was never built in mind for cross-platform support. However, to fulfill the gap for other OS, I decided to switch the project to ElectronJS. With the better flexibility, it came with a drawback of having too much dependencies on 3rd party libraries, ultimately, more concerns related to its security.

What measures we’ve been taking:

  • Kept the 3rd party dependencies lower, and built most of the modules from scratch.
  • Tested injection related vulnerabilities.
  • Regular check-up on 0-day vulnerabilities of the dependencies.

Where to report?

You can send an email to [email protected], please provide as much as possible information on reproducing and fixing the vulnerabilities. We’re already aware of a few security vulnerabilities and working on to fix it.

References related to Electron security

Please refer to the below guide on understanding the basics and security of Electron:

Also check the package.json to see this project dependencies.


We aim to release a major new update every 3 months, hoping to short this cycle however, testing and fixing the glitches for all the platforms take a bit time. Moreover, this project is maintained on weekends so you may see some slow replies on emails or issues.
