Footprinting is the art of gather information as much as possible about the target. To do a good footprint, you need to use various tools. As an Ethical Hacker, we spent most of our time profiling the target.
Footprint is important because is like a hacker will see the environment. Looking as a hacker, you can work hard to improve your security. When you’ll do a pentest, you will spent most time to planning instead of executing.
To do the best, you need to further all information collected to plan the next steps.
Today, we’ll talk a little about BillCipher. BillCiher is one of the tool to do the footprinting. You can check it at: https://github.com/GitHackTools/BillCipher
BillCipher has a lot of feature as you can see at github page. Let’s start clonning the tool. I recommend that you check the Billcipher instructions to run properly.
Go into the BillCipher folder and run billcipher;
Lets start with DNS Lookup.
One thing that dev could evaluate is about enter this information a lot of times. Now, we need to answer all again.
Lets answer the questions again.
You can use other options to gather information, but remember, this is just one tool. To do a good footprint, you need to use a lot of tools.
That’s is all folks!
