Photon crawler

Photon is a relatively fast crawler designed for automating OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) with a simple interface and tons of customization options. It’s written in Python. Photon essentially acts as a web crawler which is able to extract URLs with parameters, also able to fuzz them, secret AUTH keys, and a lot more.

Compatibility

Photon is fully compatible with Python versions 2.x – 3.x at present but will most likely end up deprecating python2.x support in the future as this project is under heavy development and may require features that aren’t available in python2.

 

Key Features

Photon can extract the following data while crawling:

  • URLs (in-scope & out-of-scope)
  • URLs with parameters (example.com/gallery.php?id=2)
  • Intel (emails, social media accounts, amazon buckets etc.)
  • Files (pdf, png, xml etc.)
  • Secret keys (auth/API keys & hashes)
  • JavaScript files & Endpoints present in them
  • Strings matching custom regex pattern
  • Subdomains & DNS related data

The extracted information is saved in an organized manner or can be exported as JSON
