CLEVELAND, Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As anyone preparing to conduct a penetration test knows, the first part of that test is determining what is in scope. This can be a long and tedious process, especially when clients are unsure about the extent of their external presence.
Footprinting, the process of identifying externally facing systems owned by the target (client) using publicly available information, can be very time consuming and any accurate footprint requires multiple sources of information.
Recognizing the need for penetration testers to be able to quickly conduct footprinting and export that information to their clients before a penetration test begins, SecureState Researcher Spencer McIntyre developed a new tool, dubbed the Kraken, to solve this problem.
"The Kraken is a game-changer for pentesters when it comes to footprinting. The SecureState Profiling & Penetration Team has been using the tool for several months to help optimize the footprinting process, resulting in hours of time saved," Tom Eston, Manager at SecureState said.
