CYBER ARMS - Computer Security

The Recon-NG Framework is a powerful tool that allows you to perform automated information gathering and network reconnaissance. Think of it as Metasploit for information collection.

Recon-NG automates a lot of the steps that are taken in the initial process of a penetration test. It has numerous features that allow you to collect user information for social engineering attacks, and network information for network mapping and much more.

You can automatically hit numerous websites to gather passive information on your target and even actively probe the target itself for data.

Anyone who is familiar with Metasploit will feel right at home as the interface was made to have the same look and feel. The command use and functions are very similar. Basically you can use Recon-NG to gather info on your target, then attack it with Metasploit.
