Reconnoitre – Multithreaded Recon and Enumeration Tool

Reconnoitre is a reconnaissance tool made for the OSCP labs to automate information gathering and service enumeration whilst creating a directory structure to store results, findings and exploits used for each host, recommended commands to execute and directory structures for storing loot and flags.

some of the way to use this tool is:

  • Scan a single host, create a file structure and discover services
  • Discover live hosts and hostnames within a range
  • Discover live hosts within a range and then do a quick probe for services
  • Discover live hosts within a range and then do probe all ports (UDP and TCP) for services

This bare requirement for host and service scanning for this tool is to have both nbtscan and nmap installed. If you are not using host scanning and only wish to perform a ping sweep and service scan you can get away with only installing nmap. The outputted findings.txt will often recommend additional tools which you may not have available in your distribution if not using Kali Linux. All requirements and recommendations are native to Kali Linux which is the recommended (although not required) distribution for using this tool.

In addition to these requirements outputs will often refer to Wordlists that you may need to find.
