What is this?
-------------

theHarvester is a tool for gathering e-mail accounts, subdomain names, virtual
hosts, open ports/ banners, and employee names from different public sources
(search engines, pgp key servers).

Is a really simple tool, but very effective for the early stages of a penetration
test or just to know the visibility of your company in the Internet.

The sources are:

Passive:
--------
-google: google search engine  - www.google.com

-googleCSE: google custom search engine

-google-profiles: google search engine, specific search for Google profiles

-bing: microsoft search engine  - www.bing.com

-bingapi: microsoft search engine, through the API (you need to add your Key in the discovery/bingsearch.py file)

-pgp: pgp key server - pgp.rediris.es

-linkedin: google search engine, specific search for Linkedin users


-vhost: Bing virtual hosts search

-twitter: twitter accounts related to an specific domain (uses google search)

-googleplus: users that works in target company (uses google search)


-shodan: Shodan Computer search engine, will search for ports and banner of the discovered hosts  (http://www.shodanhq.com/)


Active:
-------
-DNS brute force: this plugin will run a dictionary brute force enumeration
-DNS reverse lookup: reverse lookup of ip´s discovered in order to find hostnames
-DNS TDL expansion: TLD dictionary brute force enumeration


Modules that need API keys to work:
----------------------------------
-googleCSE: You need to create a Google Custom Search engine(CSE), and add your
 Google API key and CSE ID in the plugin (discovery/googleCSE.py)
-shodan: You need to provide your API key in discovery/shodansearch.py


Dependencies:

-Requests library (http://docs.python-requests.org/en/latest/)
