Information Gathering using Dmitry

In Kali, the command dmitry (Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool), is a Linux/GNU program that is written in C and will do whois lookups, port scans, email search and more.

The following is a list of the current features:

  • An Open Source Project.
  • Perform an Internet Number whois lookup.
  • Retrieve possible uptime data, system and server data.
  • Perform a SubDomain search on a target host.
  • Perform an E-Mail address search on a target host.
  • Perform a TCP Portscan on the host target.
  • A Modular program allowing user specified modules

To open dmitry in Kali from the GUI.
1. Go to Applications – Informatiton Gathering and click on dmitry.

2. In your new terminal window you will see a list of parrameters that can be appended to the dmitry program.

3. -o will allow you to save the output of dmitry in a text file.

4. -i will do a whois lookup on an ip address.  ex  dmitry -i google.com -o test
dmitry-io

5. -s will do a lookup for possible subdomains of a host you supply.
dmitry-s

6. -e will do a lookup for possible email addresses on google.com
dmitry-e

It’s a nice simple tool and I may use it but I am sure there will be times I just use nmap or whois.  I could never get the netcraft parameter to pull any information in so it may not be able to interact with the site anymore.  Let me know your stories with dmitry.
