Halberd discovers HTTP load balancers. It is useful for web application
security auditing and for load balancer configuration testing.
To cope with heavy traffic loads, web site administrators often
install load balancer devices. These machines hide (possibly) many
real web servers behind a virtual IP. They receive HTTP requests and
redirect them to the real web servers in order to share the traffic
Halberd is a tool aimed at discovering real servers behind virtual IPs.
