Machinae – Security Intelligence Collector

Machinae is a tool for collecting intelligence from public sites/feeds about various security-related pieces of data: IP addresses, domain names, URLs, email addresses, file hashes and SSL fingerprints. It was inspired by Automater, another excellent tool for collecting information.

Machinae – Security Intelligence Collector

The project was born from wishing to improve Automater in 4 areas:

  1. Codebase – Bring Automater to python3 compatibility while making the code more pythonic
  2. Configuration – Use a more human readable configuration format (YAML)
  3. Inputs – Support JSON parsing out-of-the-box without the need to write regular expressions, but still support regex scraping when needed
  4. Outputs – Support additional output types, including JSON, while making extraneous output optional
