1.  Passive
2.  Active
3.  Import names into an existing recon-ng workspace
4.  Previous menu

Passive uses Amass, ARIN, DNSRecon, dnstwist, goog-mail, goohost, theHarvester, Metasploit, Whois, multiple websites, and recon-ng.

Active uses DNSRecon, recon-ng, Traceroute, wafw00f, and Whatweb.

Generate target list


1.  ARP scan
2.  Ping sweep
3.  Previous menu
  • Use different tools to create a target list including Angry IP Scanner, arp-scan, netdiscover, and nmap pingsweep.

CIDR, List, IP, Range, or URL

Type of scan:

1.  External
2.  Internal
3.  Previous menu
  • External scan will set the nmap source port to 53 and the max-rrt-timeout to 1500ms.
  • Internal scan will set the nmap source port to 88 and the max-rrt-timeout to 500ms.
  • Nmap is used to perform host discovery, port scanning, service enumeration and OS identification.
  • Matching nmap scripts are used for additional enumeration.
  • Addition tools: enum4linux, smbclient, and ike-scan.
  • Matching Metasploit auxiliary modules are also leveraged.


Insecure direct object reference

Using Burp, authenticate to a site, map & Spider, then log out.
Target > Site map > select the URL > right click > Copy URLs in
this host. Paste the results into a new file.

Enter the location of your file:

Open multiple tabs in Firefox

1.  List
2.  Files in a directory
3.  Directories in robots.txt
4.  Previous menu
  • Use a list containing IPs and/or URLs.
  • Say you finished scanning 10 web apps with Nikto and you want to open every htm report located in a directory.
  • Use wget to pull a domain's robot.txt file, then open all of the directories.


This option cannot be ran as root.

Run multiple instances of Nikto in parallel.

1.  List of IPs
2.  List of IP:port
3.  Previous menu
