Intel Owl

Do you want to get threat intelligence data about a malware, an IP or a domain? Do you want to get this kind of data from multiple sources at the same time using a single API request?

You are in the right place!

Intel Owl is an Open Source Intelligence, or OSINT solution to get threat intelligence data about a specific file, an IP or a domain from a single API at scale. It integrates a number of analyzers available online and is for everyone who needs a single point to query for info about a specific file or observable.


  • Provides enrichment of threat intel for malware as well as observables (IP, Domain, URL and hash).
  • This application is built to scale out and to speed up the retrieval of threat info.
  • It can be integrated easily in your stack of security tools (pyintelowl) to automate common jobs usually performed, for instance, by SOC analysts manually.
  • Intel Owl is composed of analyzers that can be run to retrieve data from external sources (like VirusTotal or AbuseIPDB) or to generate intel from internal analyzers (like Yara or Oletools)
  • API written in Django and Python 3.8.
  • Inbuilt frontend client: IntelOwl-ng provides features such as dashboard, visualizations of analysis data, easy to use forms for requesting new analysis, etc. Live Demo.
