SpiderFoot automates OSINT collection so that you can focus on analysis.
SpiderFoot is an open source intelligence (OSINT) automation tool. It integrates with just about every data source available and utilises a range of methods for data analysis, making that data easy to navigate.
SpiderFoot has an embedded web-server for providing a clean and intuitive web-based interface but can also be used completely via the command-line. It's written in Python 3 and GPL-licensed.
SpiderFoot can be used offensively (e.g. in a red team exercise or penetration test) for reconnaissance of your target or defensively to gather information about what you or your organisation might have exposed over the Internet.
You can target the following entities in a SpiderFoot scan:
SpiderFoot's 200+ modules feed each other in a publisher/subscriber model to ensure maximum data extraction to do things like:
To install and run SpiderFoot, you need at least Python 3.6 and a number of Python libraries which you can install with
pip. We recommend you install a packaged release since master will often have bleeding edge features and modules that aren't fully tested.
$ wget https://github.com/smicallef/spiderfoot/archive/v3.3.tar.gz $ tar zxvf v3.3.tar.gz $ cd spiderfoot ~/spiderfoot$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt ~/spiderfoot$ python3 ./sf.py -l 127.0.0.1:5001
$ git clone https://github.com/smicallef/spiderfoot.git $ cd spiderfoot $ pip3 install -r requirements.txt ~/spiderfoot$ python3 ./sf.py -l 127.0.0.1:5001
Whether you're a contributor, user or just curious about SpiderFoot and OSINT in general, we'd love to have you join our community! SpiderFoot now has a Discord server for chat, and a Discourse server to serve as a more permanent knowledge base.
SpiderFoot has over 200 modules, most of which don't require API keys, and many of those that do require API keys have a free tier.
