Recon is a state of the art web application security information gathering and target identification tool.
｢Recon can swiftly identify vulnerabilities on a wide-range of targets, sourced from various public databases.｣
These targets are analysed with several passive vulnerability detection techniques, avoiding detection from web application firewalls and intrusion detection systems.
◉ Tool Operation
Recon performs target discovery by using search engines, domain and sub-domain name resolution and virtual host discovery techniques. The selected targets are related to the base target specified by the user. Once the targets are discovered, Recon utilizes a custom, lightweight scan looking only for specific vulnerabilities that can be discovered through passive analysis.
◉ Function And Usefulness
Recon can be used in cases when you need to discover the entire estate of a given target and quickly identify week areas that require further investigation. The tool is quick at performing analysis of large public networks and computing estates.
