Check Host Information such as open ports from Shodan WITHOUT an API key!

Shodan recently released a new tool to the public!

It is a CLI tool to query Shodan with a list of domains/IPs and get some light information about them.

It’s called nrich and can be found HERE

To install, you just have to download the latest version which can be found HERE

cd /opt/OSINT
sudo wget
sudo dpkg -i nrich_latest_amd64.deb
sudo rm nrich_latest_amd64.deb

This is super useful because you don’t need an account with API access to get some information from Shodan (or go to the GUI web app). I promise you’ll see this added to some auto-recon tools moving forward!

To run it you can pipe IPs in

echo | nrich

Or you can feed it a file

nrich listoftargets.txt
