Intro

There's a lot of hype around the new version of Covenant 3.0 so I figured I'd share my installation experience with the world (I need content...shhhhh...lol). My boy Wraith said it was pretty legit so I had a quick look-see before hoping into bed. It def looks like a solid and modern framework that ups that ante for other C2 frameworks (you'll never steal my heart from Koadic!❤).

Installation Steps I took… -TLDRs Start Here ⤵

To start off I cloned the repository recursively as instructed in the repo’s wiki:

clutchisback1@Deadpool /e/github  $ git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/cobbr/Covenant
Cloning into 'Covenant'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 1133, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (1133/1133), done.

Receiving objects: 100% (1545/1545), 22.18 MiB | 3.35 MiB/s, done.Resolving deltas: 100% (820/820), done.

After cloning the repo you have to make sure you have the dotnet core pre-reqs before you can build the tool. Microsoft had the following commands on their instructions for Linux Installation which allows you to install their x64 bit binaries:

wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/19.04/packages-microsoft-prod.deb -O packages-microsoft-prod.deb
sudo dpkg -i packages-microsoft-prod.deb

Apt has a dotnet framework as well and in the process of trying to install this I installed that too. (This may or may not need to be done)

clutchisback1@Deadpool /e/g/Covenant  $ sudo snap install dotnet-sdk --classic         2 changed files  master
dotnet-sdk 2.2.401 from Microsoft .NET Core (dotnetcore✓) installed

Once this was done I was ready to build and run the application:

clutchisback1@Deadpool /e/g/Covenant  $ dotnet-sdk.dotnet build                        2 changed files  master

Running it 🏃

After that big glob of "gobbly guk" I was able to launch the application by running run. As you can see I used the apt command 'dotnet-sdk.dotnet' that I had installed earlier to launch the run command specifying the apps folder with the '--project' flag. Apparently my project ended up being in a folder called Covenant which was also inside another folder called Covenant. I feel like there's a Linux law against embedding folders with the same name somewhere but 'whatevs':
