Purpose of the Automated Tool

The purpose of the Automated Tool is to provide a place to enter data and retrieve several pieces of information without using each individual tool. A web based report is available showing the results of the queries from each tool.

About the Automated Research Tool

The Automated Research Tool accepts input as an IP Address, hostname, domain name, email address or URL then conducts research on that input data using some of our manual tools. This feature helps you do basic analysis without having to know how to use specific tools.

The Automated Research section is organized into a four step process.

  1. Enter the input information.
  2. Make a decision you make on what tests you want to perform based on the type of input.
  3. Optional - what settings do you need?
  4. Get information about the target - ie. doing the tests, then reviewing the reports. Reports are presented in your web browser and may be recalled later for future use.
