D0xk1t – Web-based OSINT and Active Reconaissance Suite
Active reconnaissance, information gathering and OSINT built in a portable web application.
- What is this?
D0xk1t is an open-source, self-hosted and easy to use OSINT and active reconnaissance web application for penetration testers. Based off of the prior command-line script, D0xk1t is now fully capable of conducting reconnaissance and penetration testing for security researchers who need a framework without the head-scratching.
- Is this a website / web-app ?
Yes and no. In essence, it is not a typical website. D0xk1t is self-hosted. There is no server stack, cloud-based service, SaaS, etc. that is holding it up. You can have the option of deploying D0xk1t on a local network or deploying your own instance on any infrastructure/technology as you wish (although not recommended).
- Is this free?
- Easy-to-build, risk-free installation
- Simple Bootstrap Admin Dashboard
- Deployable to the Internet
- Serverless (at the moment)
- Expansive to any OS
Since D0xk1t is self-hosted, it does not work immediately out-of-box. It is recommended that you use a
virtualenv container due to the sheer number of dependencies that can run into conflict with your Python configuration.
Lucky for you, there are two ways to build D0xk1t. The quick ‘n easy way, and the manual way.
Quick ‘n Easy Way:
$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ex0dus-0x/D0xk1t/master/extras/install | sudo /bin/bash
$ git clone https://github.com/ex0dus-0x/D0xk1t && cd D0xk1t $ # Start virtualenv if you wish $ pip install -r requirements.txt $ python run.py
config.py. Here, you will see all the environmental variables that the application utilizes. Three important fields youMUST be aware of if you plan to deploy to the web.
GOOGLEMAPS_API_KEY = "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE" SECRET_KEY = 'SECRET_KEY_HERE'
GOOGLEMAPS_API_KEY denotes the Google Maps API Key. This is essential for the GeoIP module. You can obtain it here and change the variable accordingly.
SECRET_KEY is the private key utilized by WTForm’s CSRF protection feature. If deployed, change it to your liking.
Once installed, run with
python run.py. The application will run a first-time boot, and will then be accessible at
127.0.0.1:5000. Login with credentials, and you will be present with the admin panel.
Of course, this is self-hosting on localhost. Although work-in-progress, D0xk1t will soon support hosting on a variety of SaaS and server stacks of your choice.

The D0x module is a comprehensive info-gathering database that enables the pentester to write “D0x”, or a file that holds a collection of data of a certain target, or targets. Using this data, the tester will be able to effectively understand their target, which is a critical point in the attacker’s kill chain. D0xing is usually deemed malicious and black-hat in nature. However, with the D0x module, we aim to help security researchers gain momentum when conducting in-the-field pentesting.
The D0x module does come with several features, improved upon based off of the prior revision.
- Secure database support, with delete and export (as
When working with metadata, IP addresses often pop up as a point-of-interest. Using Maxmind and Google Map’s APIs, the GeoIP module aims to collect geolocation information on public IP addresses, in order to gather data on physical location during the reconnaissance stage of the killchain.
- Google Maps support for accurate GeoIP visualization
- API endpoint support for command-liners or developers.
