reNgine 1.1
More than just recon!

The only web application recon tool you will ever need!

Quickly discover the attack surface, and identify vulnerabilities using highly customizable and powerful scan engines. Enjoy peace of mind with reNgine's continuous monitoring, deeper reconnaissance, and open-source powered Vulnerability Scanner.

What is reNgine?

reNgine is a web application reconnaissance suite with focus on a highly configurable streamlined recon process via Engines, recon data correlation, continuous monitoring, recon data backed by a database, and a simple yet intuitive User Interface. With features such as sub-scan, deeper co-relation, report generation, etc. reNgine aims to fix the gap in the traditional recon tools and probably a better alternative for existing commercial tools.

reNgine makes it easy for penetration testers and security auditors to gather reconnaissance data with bare minimal configuration.

reNgine 2.0 codenamed Jasper

I am currently working on reNgine 2.0 likely to be announced sometime between May and August 2023. This version will be codenamed for Jasper. reNgine 2.0 will be the most advanced reNgine ever, tons of work will be done in how scans are performed, things such as Pause and Resume Scan, Axiom Integration, more deeper correlation, Project Options, Multiple Tenants, etc.

Please submit your feature requests via GitHub issues.


About reNgine

You can watch reNgine 1.1 release trailer here. (Recommended)


reNgine is a web application reconnaissance suite with a focus on a highly configurable streamlined recon process. reNgine is backed by a database, with data correlation and organization, the custom query “like” language for recon data filtering, reNgine aims to address the shortcomings of traditional recon workflow.

Developers behind reNgine understand that recon data can be huge, and manually looking up for entries to attack could be cumbersome, with features like identifying Interesting Subdomains, helping penetration testers focus on attack rather than recon.

reNgine is also focused on continuous monitoring. Penetration testers can choose to schedule the scan at periodic intervals and get notified on notification channels like Discord, Slack, and Telegram for any new subdomains or vulnerabilities identified, or any recon data changes.

Interoperability is something every recon tool needs, and reNgine is no different. Beginning reNgine 1.0, we additionally developed features such as import and export subdomains, endpoints, GF pattern matched endpoints, etc. This will allow you to use your favorite recon workflow in conjunction with reNgine.

PDF reports are something every individual or team needs. Beginning reNgine 1.1, reNgine also comes with an option to download PDF reports. One can also choose the type of report, Full Scan Report or just a reconnaissance report. Also, we understand that PDF reports need to be customizable. Choose the color of the report you like, customize the executive summary, etc. You choose the way your pdf report looks!

reNgine features Highly configurable scan engines based on YAML, that allow penetration testers to create as many recon engines as they want of their choice, configure as they wish, and use them against any targets for the scan. These engines allow penetration testers to use tools of their choice, the configuration of their choice. Out of the box, reNgine comes with several scan engines like Full Scan, Passive Scan, Screenshot gathering, OSINT Engine, etc.

Our focus has always been on finding the right recon data with very minimal effort. After having several discussions with fellow hackers/pentesters, a screenshots gallery was a must, reNgine also comes with a screenshot gallery, and what's more exciting than having a screenshot gallery with filters, filter screenshots with HTTP status, technology, ports, and services.

We also want our fellow hackers to stay ahead of the game, reNgine also comes with automatic vulnerability reporting (ATM only Hackerone is supported, other platforms may come soon). This allows hackers to define their vulnerability report template, and reNgine will do the rest of the job to report vulnerability as soon as it is identified.

There are many other great reconnaissance frameworks, you may use reNgine in conjunction with these tools. But, they themselves are great, and may sometimes even produce better results than reNgine.


Support and Sponsoring

Over the last few years, I have been working hard on reNgine to bring new features with the only goal to make this a De-facto standard for reconnaissance. Most of my out-of-office hours and weekends are spent working on reNgine. I do this in addition to my primary job. I am happy to have received such overwhelming support from the community. But to keep this project alive, I am seeking financial support.
