detectem is a specialized software detector. Let's see it in action.

$ det http://domain.tld
[{'name': 'phusion-passenger', 'version': '4.0.10'},
 {'name': 'apache-mod_bwlimited', 'version': '1.4'},
 {'name': 'apache-mod_fcgid', 'version': '2.3.9'},
 {'name': 'jquery', 'version': '1.11.3'},
 {'name': 'crayon-syntax-highlighter', 'version': '2.7.2_beta'}]

Using a serie of indicators, it's able to detect software running on a site and extract accurately its version information. It uses Splash API to render the website and start the detection routine. It does full analysis on requests, responses and even on the DOM!

There are two important articles to read:

Features

  • Detect software in modern web technologies.
  • Browser support provided by Splash.
  • Analysis on requests made and responses received by the browser.
  • Get software information from the DOM.
  • Great performance (less than 10 seconds to get a fingerprint).
  • Plugin system to add new software easily.
  • Test suite to ensure plugin result integrity.
  • Continuous development to support new features.

Installation

  1. Install Docker and add your user to the docker group, then you avoid to use sudo.
  2. Pull the image:

    $ docker pull scrapinghub/splash
  3. Create a virtual environment with Python >= 3.6 .
  4. Install detectem:

    $ pip install detectem
  5. Run it against some URL:

    $ det http://domain.tld

Other installation method

detectem as Docker Container

Let's see it in action.

$ docker-compose run --rm detectem http://domain.tld
[{'name': 'phusion-passenger', 'version': '4.0.10'},
 {'name': 'apache-mod_bwlimited', 'version': '1.4'},
 {'name': 'apache-mod_fcgid', 'version': '2.3.9'},
 {'name': 'jquery', 'version': '1.11.3'},
 {'name': 'crayon-syntax-highlighter', 'version': '2.7.2_beta'}]

But first that all we must do:

Installation

  1. Install the last Docker CE Stable version.
  2. Add your user to the docker group and logout:

    $ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
  3. Make sure you have logout to apply changes, then log in again.
  4. Install Docker Compose
  5. Download to your workspace the docker-compose building files.

    Dockerfile-alternate docker-compose.yml

  6. Build the required docker images for detectem at the same directory as the previous point:

    $ docker-compose up -d
  7. Run detectem against some URL:

    $ docker-compose run --rm detectem http://domain.tld
