httpx is a fast and multi-purpose HTTP toolkit allow to run multiple probers using retryablehttp library, it is designed to maintain the result reliability with increased threads.

Features

httpx

  • Simple and modular code base making it easy to contribute.
  • Fast And fully configurable flags to probe multiple elements.
  • Supports multiple HTTP based probings.
  • Smart auto fallback from https to http as default.
  • Supports hosts, URLs and CIDR as input.
  • Handles edge cases doing retries, backoffs etc for handling WAFs.

Supported probes:-

Probes Default check Probes Default check
URL true IP true
Title true CNAME true
Status Code true Raw HTTP false
Content Length true HTTP2 false
TLS Certificate true HTTP Pipeline false
CSP Header true Virtual host false
Line Count true Word Count true
Location Header true CDN false
Web Server true Paths false
Web Socket true Ports false
Response Time true Request Method true
Favicon Hash false Probe Status false
Body Hash true Header Hash true

📋 Notes

  • As default, httpx checks for HTTPS probe and fall-back to HTTP only if HTTPS is not reachable.
  • For printing both HTTP/HTTPS results, no-fallback flag can be used.
  • Custom scheme for ports can be defined, for example -ports http:443,http:80,https:8443
  • favicon,vhost, http2, pipeline, ports, csp-probe, tls-probe and path are unique flag with different probes.
  • Unique flags should be used for specific use cases instead of running them as default with other probes.
  • When using json flag, all the information (default probes) included in the JSON output.
  • Custom resolver supports multiple protocol (doh|tcp|udp) in form of protocol:resolver:port (eg udp:127.0.0.1:53)
  • Invalid custom resolvers/files are ignored.
