Introduction

NSE script using the Censys IPv4 API, allowing you to passively gather information about hosts.

Installation

Simple place the censys-api.nse script into your nmap scripts folder. e.g:

cp censys-api.nse /usr/share/nmap/scripts/

If nmap is installed on macOS via Homebrew, the scripts folder might instead be at /usr/local/share/nmap/scripts/.

Usage

Invoke the script like you would any other NSE script:

nmap  -sn -Pn -n  --script censys-api  scanme.nmap.org

API Keys

The Censys API ID and secret can be set with the apiid and apisecret script arguments, CENSYS_API_ID and CENSYS_API_SECRET environment variables, or hardcoded in the .nse file itself. You can get free API credentials from https://censys.io/api .

Saving to a File

The results can be written to file with the outfile script argument censys-api.outfile.

Warning

nmap will still scan the target host normally. If you only want to look up the target in Censys you need to include the -sn -Pn -n flags.
