In my master thesis power point presentation I have written:

Attacks consist of sending HTTP requests by
- Tools
- The Hacktuator itself

What I want to say here is that the Hacktuator can perform Attacks by running tools (which will send http requests) or by constructing and sending http requests on its own.

Is by correct? Or I should use through? Thanks a lot.

  • PowerPoint presentations are just visual cues. So long as it prompts you to deliver the lecture, it has done its job. Even “• attacks • tools • Hacktuator” would work. – Lawrence May 21 '20 at 14:39

The Hacktuator is involved in both forms of attack, so you've branched your statement too early. Try, perhaps:

Attacks consist of HTTP requests sent by The Hacktuator either directly or via tools.

If you need bullet points for the slide:

Attacks consist of HTTP requests sent by The Hacktuator
    -   directly
    -   via tools

I would recommend you instead use "with" or "using" as in the following examples:

Attacks consist of sending HTTP requests with The Hacktuator itself.

Attacks consist of sending HTTP requests using Tools.
