Shodan is an Internet of Things search engine that allows you to search and scan a wide variety of devices using a wide array of filters. Some will limit their information gathering to things that they see on the web. You can go beyond this, and Shodan is a tool to help with that: phones, controllers, refrigerators, etc. Shodan has powerful dashboards, community curated filters, and a powerful API to let you plug right into their platform.

Here is a HackerSploit video covering some of the basics of Shodan:

 

And if you want to check out the engine for yourself...well, here you go!

Shodan is crazy powerful. My advice in using it would be: always think about it, before engaging in your next action.

      I'd recommend checking this tool out if you are conducting some recon to gain an overview of HTTP-based attack surface. According to the Aquatone Github repository,
      You can also use it alongside other tools, like Amass, Nmap, Masscan, etc.

      emailrep.io is a simple tool with a nice API that will tell you information about an email address, including:
      Reputation Level Is it suspicious? References Is it blacklisted? Has its credentials been leaked? Has it been part of any data breach? Is it a spammer? Is it spoofable? And much more. A further description from their website states:
      As this is posted in pentesting, some of the offensive usecases of this tool might include:
      Conduct recon on a target to prepare for credential bruteforcing Constructing targeted phishing attacks Avoid the spam folder There are also defenses ways in which this tool might be used, like to detect phishing attacks, prevent fraud, require additional layer of verification during registration, etc.
      Check it out!
