Raccoon Scanner for Information Gathering


Offensive Security Tool for Reconnaissance and Information Gathering. Raccoon is a tool made for reconnaissance and information gathering with an emphasis on simplicity. It will do everything from fetching DNS records, retrieving WHOIS information, obtaining TLS data, detecting WAF presence and up to threaded dir busting and subdomain enumeration. Every scan output to a corresponding file.

As most of Raccoon's scans are independent and do not rely on each other's results, it utilizes Python's Asuncion to run most scans asynchronously.
