RTSP Discover is provided for testing purposes only and is not authorized for use to conduct malicious, illegal or other nefarious activities.

Standard usage is:

python rtsp_discover.py <target ip [:port]>

Right now the discover program runs a DESCRIBE request and a OPTIONS request. DESCIBE is defined by the standard as an optionally supported verb, while OPTIONS is a mandatory verb. If both of these don't return anything, it is a pretty good bet that the port doesn't actually support RTSP (even if it is on the 554 standard port).

To Do:

  1. Validate there are no other inquiry verbs that could help discover RTSP connections in the standard.
  2. Check whether there are other DESCRIBE or OPTIONS formats that may illuminate RTSP active ports.
  3. Add the ability to search scan (give it a IP block and port block)
  4. Add more intelligent reporting.
