Using uncover as library

Example of using uncover as library is provided in examples directory.

Provider Configuration

The default provider configuration file should be located at $HOME/.config/uncover/provider-config.yaml and has the following contents as an example.

Note: API keys are required and must be configured before running uncover.

shodan:
  - SHODAN_API_KEY_1
  - SHODAN_API_KEY_2
censys:
  - CENSYS_API_ID_1:CENSYS_API_SECRET_1
  - CENSYS_API_ID_2:CENSYS_API_SECRET_2
fofa:
  - FOFA_EMAIL_1:FOFA_KEY_1
  - FOFA_EMAIL_2:FOFA_KEY_2
quake:
  - QUAKE_TOKEN_1
  - QUAKE_TOKEN_2
hunter:
  - HUNTER_API_KEY_1
  - HUNTER_API_KEY_2
zoomeye:
  - ZOOMEYE_API_KEY_1
  - ZOOMEYE_API_KEY_2
netlas:
  - NETLAS_API_KEY_1
  - NETLAS_API_KEY_2
criminalip:
  - CRIMINALIP_API_KEY_1
  - CRIMINALIP_API_KEY_2
publicwww:
  - PUBLICWWW_API_KEY_1
  - PUBLICWWW_API_KEY_2
hunterhow:
  - HUNTERHOW_API_KEY_1 
  - HUNTERHOW_API_KEY_2

When multiple keys/credentials are specified for same provider in the config file, random key will be used for each execution.

alternatively you can also set the API key as environment variable in your bash profile.

export SHODAN_API_KEY=xxx
export CENSYS_API_ID=xxx
export CENSYS_API_SECRET=xxx
export FOFA_EMAIL=xxx
export FOFA_KEY=xxx
export QUAKE_TOKEN=xxx
export HUNTER_API_KEY=xxx
export ZOOMEYE_API_KEY=xxx
export NETLAS_API_KEY=xxx
export CRIMINALIP_API_KEY=xxx
export PUBLICWWW_API_KEY=xxx
export HUNTERHOW_API_KEY=xxx

Required API keys can be obtained by signing up on following platform Shodan, Censys, Fofa, Quake, Hunter, ZoomEye, Netlas, CriminalIP and Publicwww.

Running Uncover

Default run:

uncover supports multiple ways to make the query including stdin or q flag, as default shodan engine is used for search if no engine is specified.

Shodan-InternetDB API

uncover supports shodan-internetdb API to pull available ports for given IP/CIDR input.

shodan-idb used as default engine when IP/CIDR is provided as input, otherwise shodan search engine is used.

Field Format

-f, -field flag can be used to indicate which fields to return, currently, ip, port, and host are supported and can be used to return desired fields.

uncover -q jira -f host -silent

ec2-34-241-80-255.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com

Field Formatting

uncover has a -f, -field flag that can be used to customize the output format. For example, in the case of uncover -f https://ip:port/version, ip:port will be replaced with results in the output while keeping the format defined, It can also be used to specify a known scheme/path/file in order to prepare the output so that it can be immediately passed as input to other tools in the pipeline.

echo kubernetes | uncover -f https://ip:port/version -silent

https://35.222.229.38:443/version
https://52.11.181.228:443/version
https://35.239.255.1:443/version
https://34.71.48.11:443/version
https://130.211.54.173:443/version
https://54.184.250.232:443/version

Output of uncover can be further piped to other projects in workflow accepting stdin as input, for example:

  • uncover -q example -f ip | naabu - Runs naabu for port scanning on the found host.
  • uncover -q title:GitLab | httpx - Runs httpx for web server probing the found result.
  • uncover -q 51.83.59.99/24 | httpx - Runs httpx on host/ports obtained from shodan-internetdb.
uncover -q http.title:GitLab -silent | httpx -silent

  • uncover -q 'org:"Example Inc."' | httpx | nuclei - Runs httpx / nuclei for vulnerability assessment.

Notes:

  • keys/ credentials are required to configure before running or using this project.
  • query flag supports all and only filters supported by search engine.
  • results are limited to 100 as default and can be increased with limit flag.
  • shodan-idb API doesn't requires an API key and works out of the box.
  • shodan-idb API is used as default engine when IP/CIDR is provided as input.

uncover is made with 🖤 by the projectdiscovery team.
