XRay: Network OSINT Gathering Tool

XRay is a tool for network OSINT gathering, its goal is to make some of the initial tasks of information gathering and network mapping automatic.

How Does it Work?

XRay is a very simple tool, it works this way:

  • It’ll bruteforce subdomains using a wordlist and DNS requests.
  • For every subdomain/ip found, it’ll use Shodan to gather open ports and other intel.
  • For every unique ip address, and for every open port, it’ll launch specific banner grabbers and info collectors.
  • Eventually the data is presented to the user on the web ui.

Grabbers and Collectors

  • HTTP Server, X-Powered-By and Location headers.
  • HTTP and HTTPS robots.txt disallowed entries.
  • HTTPS certificates chain.
  • HTML title tag.
  • DNS version.bind. and hostname.bind. records.
  • MySQL, SMTP, FTP, SSH, POP and IRC banners.
