AutoRecon – Multi-threaded Network Recon Tool

AutoRecon is a multi-threaded network reconnaissance tool which performs automated enumeration of services. It is intended as a time-saving tool for use in CTFs and other penetration testing environments (e.g. OSCP). It may also be useful in real-world engagements.

The tool works by firstly performing port scans / service detection scans. From those initial results, the tool will launch further enumeration scans of those services using a number of different tools. For example, if HTTP is found, nikto will be launched (as well as many others).

The current supported features are:

  • Supports multiple targets in the form of IP addresses, IP ranges (CIDR notation), and resolvable hostnames.
  • Can scan targets concurrently, utilizing multiple processors if they are available.
  • Customizable port scanning profiles for flexibility in your initial scans.
  • Customizable service enumeration commands and suggested manual follow-up commands.
  • An intuitive directory structure for results gathering.
  • Full logging of commands that were run, along with errors if they fail.
  • Global and per-scan pattern matching so you can highlight/extract important information from the noise.
