GWTMap - Tool to help map the attack surface of Google Web Toolkit

GWTMap is a tool to help map the attack surface of Google Web Toolkit (GWT) based applications. The purpose of this tool is to facilitate the extraction of any service method endpoints buried within a modern GWT application's obfuscated client-side code, and attempt to generate example GWT-RPC requests payloads to interact with them.

More information can be found here:


The script requires Python3, argparse, and requests to run. They can be installed using the following command:

python -m pip install -r requirements.txt


$ ./ -h
usage: [-h] [--version] [-u <TARGET_URL>] -F <FILE> [-b <BASE_URL>] [-p <PROXY>] [-c <COOKIES>] [-f <FILTER>] [--basic] [--rpc] [--probe] [--svc] [--code] [--color] [--backup [DIR]] [-q]

Enumerates GWT-RPC methods from {hex}.cache.js permutation files

-h, --help show this help message and exit
--version show program's version number and exit
URL of the target GWT {name}.nocache.js bootstrap or {hex}.cache.js file
-F <FILE>, --file <FILE>
path to the local copy of a {hex}.cache.js GWT permutation file
-b <BASE_URL>, --base <BASE_URL>
specifies the base URL for a given permutation file in -F/--file mode
-p <PROXY>, --proxy <PROXY>
URL for an optional HTTP proxy (e.g. -p
-c <COOKIES>, --cookies <COOKIES>
any cookies required to access the remote resource in -u/--url mode (e.g. 'JSESSIONID=ABCDEF; OTHER=XYZABC')
-f <FILTER>, --filter <FILTER>
case-sensitive method filter for output (e.g. -f AuthSvc.checkSession)
--basic enables HTTP Basic authentication if require. Prompts for credentials
--rpc attempts to generate a serialized RPC request for each method
--probe sends an HTTP probe request to test each method returned in --rpc mode
--svc displays enumerated service information, in addition to methods
--code skips all and dumps the 're-formatted' state of the provided resource
--color enables console output colors
--backup [DIR] creates a local backup of retrieved code in -u/--url mode
-q, --quiet enables quiet mode (minimal output)

Example: ./ -u "" -p "" --rpc


Enumerate the methods of a remote application via it's bootstrap file and create a local backup of the code (selects permutation at random):

./ -u --backup

Enumerate the methods of a remote application via a specific code permutation

./ -u

Enumerate the methods whilst routing traffic through an HTTP proxy:

./ -u --backup -p

Enumerate the methods of a local copy (a file) of any given permutation:

./ -F test_data/olympian/C39AB19B83398A76A21E0CD04EC9B14C.cache.js

Filter output to a specific service or method:

./ -u --filter AuthenticationService.login

Generate RPC payloads for all methods of the filtered service, with coloured output

./ -u --filter AuthenticationService --rpc --color

Automatically test (probe) the generate RPC request for the filtered service method

./ -u --filter AuthenticationService.login --rpc --probe

Complete Examples

Generate an RPC request for the method "testDetails", and automatically probe the service

$ ./ -u --filter TestService.testDetails --rpc --probe
