Intelligence Gathering - The Penetration Testing Execution Standard. This section defines the Intelligence Gathering activities of a penetration test.
The purpose of this document is to provide a standard designed specifically for the pentester performing reconnaissance against a target (typically corporate, military, or related). The document details the thought process and goals of pentesting reconnaissance, and when used properly, helps the reader to produce a highly strategic plan for attacking a target. Background Concepts Levels are an important concept for this document and for PTES as a whole.
It’s a maturity model of sorts for pentesting. The Intelligence Gathering levels are currently split into three categories, and a typical example is given for each one. Level 1 Information Gathering (think: Compliance Driven) Mainly a click-button information gathering process. Acme Corporation is required to be compliant with PCI / FISMA / HIPAA. Level 2 Information Gathering Level 3 Information Gathering What it is Why do it What is it not Corporate Physical. Resources - Toddington.

Theharvester - Information Gathering. The objective of this program is to gather emails, subdomains, hosts, employee names, open ports and banners from different public sources like search engines, PGP key servers and SHODAN computer database.
This tool is intended to help Penetration testers in the early stages of the penetration test in order to understand the customer footprint on the Internet. It is also useful for anyone that wants to know what an attacker can see about their organization. This is a complete rewrite of the tool with new features like: Time delays between request All sources search Virtual host verifier Active enumeration (DNS enumeration, Reverse lookups, TLD expansion) Integration with SHODAN computer database, to get the open ports and banners Save to XML and HTML Basic graph with stats New sources Passive discovery: Google: google search engine - www.google.com Google-profiles: google search engine, specific search for Google profiles.
OSINT Training by Michael Bazzell. Online Penetration Testing Tools. About this tool 'Find Subdomains' allows you to discover subdomains of your target domain and increase your attack surface.
Finding subdomains is useful in a penetration test because they point to different applications and indicate different external network ranges used by the target company. For instance, x.company.com points to IP 18.104.22.168 and y.company.com points to IP 22.214.171.124. Now you know two different ip ranges possibly owned by your target and you can extend the attack surface. Furthermore, subdomains sometimes host 'non-public' applications (e.g. test, development, restricted) which are usually less secure than the public applications so they can be the primary attack targets.
Parameters Domain name: is the target domain (ex. oracle.com, yahoo.com, etc) Include subdomain details: this option instructs the tool to do DNS resolution for each subdomain discovered and whois queries in order to determine the network owners of the ip addresses How it works.
