CANVAS is completely programmed in Python.

You can no only look at the exploit but also the interface :-)

As I have said in the past, core impact has more beautifying, more wrapping,
and more people behind it supporting it but at the price that CANVAS is
sold, you can definitively afford CANVAS and it does a great job.

There were some stability issues with the earlier version of CANVAS but
overall I have found that it was a great tool for what it is intended:

Core Impact has more features wrapped but you pay for these features such
has having NMAP integrated etc... etc...  One of the beef I had with core
impact was the fact that it was tied to specific version of WinPcap and you
were out of luck at time if you were running the latest version of NMAP with
the latest version of Winpcap.

Ask both vendors for a demo.  See for yourself, try it yourself, that's
probably the best way to find out which one better fill your needs.

Based upon experienced findings during live testing, which product
you with most clarity of comprehensive information( CANVAS or CORE
Impact? ). You >mentioned CANVAS allows you to look under the hood and
analyze the exploits but what about CORE Impact.

Core impact uses Python for the exploits, so you can look under the hood
quite easily so to speak.
