What is reconnaissance?

Reconnaissance is a critical phase in bug bounty hunting and security research, which involves gathering as much information as possible about the target system or application.

It helps security experts identify potential targets and attack vectors, and develop a comprehensive understanding of the system’s architecture. With the increasing complexity of modern web applications, effective reconnaissance has become more important than ever.

Vidoc Research offers a powerful reconnaissance - Active Recon -feature. With just a one click, users can initiate a scan of their target domain and obtain a wealth of valuable data.

Our Active Recon continuously scan for new targets 24/7. This means that as soon as a new target becomes available on given domain, you will be the first one to know - gain a significant advantage in bug bounty hunting. Active Recon acts like an asset monitoring system, providing you with up-to-date information and ensuring that you never miss any new targets.

All the results are presented in an easy-to-use interface under the “Explore data” tab.

The tool provides information on various aspects of the target system including:

  • DNS records
  • open ports
  • subdomains
  • IPs and
  • list of identified web servers

Additionally, the tool fingerprints the servers and provides information about the technology used on the given server.

You can filter and query the obtained data. With our tool, you get a comprehensive view of your targets, enabling you to identify new endpoints and potential attack vectors easily.
