## Description

An autonomous system number (ASN) is a unique number assigned to an autonomous system (AS) by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). An AS consists of blocks of IP addresses which have a distinctly defined policy for accessing external networks and are administered by a single organization

This is a python client which leverages our free API to find the IP space (IPv4 and IPv6) registered and owned by a specific organization.

ASNLookup searches for the organization ASNs and use the latter to find the IP space. You can also use asnlookup client to run port scanning on the IP space using


Check out for easy use and for the API.


$ git clone && cd Asnlookup
$ pip install -r requirements.txt (or pip3 install -r requirements.txt if you're using Python3)
$ python -o 

E.g: python -o "Capital One"

Port Scanning

The tool supports port scanning using Nmap or Masscan but requires prior installation on your machine. How to?

  • For Nmap:
On CentOS
$ yum install nmap

  • On Debian $ apt-get install nmap

  • On Ubuntu $ sudo apt-get install nmap

  • Mac OS $ brew install nmap

  • For Masscan (Doesn't support IPv6 scanning): refer to

To scan the IP addresses, append to the command

arugment for Masscan or
for Nmap:
$ python -m -o 

You can also pass your own Nmap/Masscan arguments (Default for nmap:

-p 1-65535 -T4 -A -v
; default for Masscan:
-p0-65535 --rate 200
$ python -m="" -o 

Example using Nmap with custom arguments:

$ python -n="--top-ports 65535" -o twitter

It will export the results to a text file in the output directory

(E.g: ./output/salesforce.txt)
then run Nmap.


For smaller organizations the ASN will usually be that of their ISP whereas the hostname might not. One example of this is, a GitHub IP address. The ASN is AS27357 (Rackspace Hosting), but the hostname is
