  • Last Updated : 23 Aug, 2021

DNS Reconnaissance or Enumeration is the phase or process of collecting all the information about the DNS servers and their associated records of a target domain organization. An organization may consist of internal and external DNS Servers that can reveal usernames, computer names, and many more. Crips is a Python-language-based tool that is an all-in-one tool for Information Gathering and Enumeration. Crips can retrieve the IP address information of a specific website and can also give the Whois records of a particular target domain. Crips is a command-line tool and open-source tool, which means you can use this tool free of cost.

Note: Make Sure You have Python Installed on your System, as this is a python-based tool.

Features of Crips Tool

  1. Crips tool can perform Whois lookup.
  2. Crips tool can perform Traceroute.
  3. Crips tool can perform DNS Lookup.
  4. Crips tool can perform Reverse DNS Lookup.
  5. Crips tool can perform GeoIP Lookup.
  6. Crips tool can perform Port Scan.
  7. Crips tool can perform Reverse IP Lookup.
  8. Crips tool is open-source and free to use.

Gathering this information can ease exploitation and give a better methodology for the penetration tester to perform Security Research.

Installation of Crips Tool in Kali Linux OS

Step 1: Open up your Kali Linux terminal and move to Desktop using the following command.



cd Desktop

Step 2: You are on Desktop now, create a new directory called Crips using the following command. In this directory, we will complete the installation of the Crips tool.

mkdir Crips

git clone https://github.com/Manisso/Crips.git

Step 5: The tool has been downloaded successfully in the Crips directory. Now list out the contents of the tool by using the below command.



ls

Step 6: You can observe that there is a new directory created of the Crips tool that has been generated while we were installing the tool. Now move to that directory using the below command:

cd Crips/

Step 7: Once again to discover the contents of the tool, use the below command.

ls

Step 8: Run the crips.py file for getting the menu, use the following command.

python crips.py

Working With Crips Tool in Kali Linux

Example 1: Whois Lookup

1. In this example, We will be performing Whois Lookup Enumeration on our target domain geeksforgeeks.org. We have selected Option 1 and provided the domain URL to get Whois Record results.



2. In the below Screenshot, you can see that we have got the Whois Lookup results of the target domain geeksforgeeks.org. This result contains the Expiry date, Domain Registration date, Update Date, Name Servers, and many more details.

Example 2: Traceroute

1. In this example, We will be performing Traceroute on our target domain geeksforgeeks.org. Traceroute is a network diagnostic tool used to track in real-time the pathway taken by a packet on an IP network from source to destination.

2. In the below Screenshot, You can see that we have got the path details from source to destination.

Example 3: DNS Lookup

1. In this Example, We will performing DNS Lookup or DNS Enumeration on the geeksforgeeks.org domain. We have selected Option 3 for DNS Lookup.



2. In the below Screenshot, We have got the DNS Lookup results which include various records like A, MX, NS, SOA, etc.

Example 4: Reverse DNS Lookup

1. In this example, We will be performing a Reverse DNS Lookup on geeksforgeeks.org.

2. In the below Screenshot, the results of Reverse DNS Lookup are mentioned or displayed.

Example 5: GeoIP Lookup

1. In this example, We will be performing GeoIP lookup. In this Enumeration, we will get the details of the IP address associated with the target domain.

2. In the below Screenshot, We have got the details of the IP address associated with the target domain. IP Address, Country, State, City, etc. information is retrieved in this Enumeration.
