Analysis of the DNS zones in Examples 3-8 and 3-9 show some differences, so it is important to issue the same queries against all accessible name servers to achieve the best resolution and understanding of network topology.

Enumeration at a lower level is not easily performed with such tools, and so manual processes should still be applied to perform specific DNS and WHOIS querying. Automating Enumeration | 37 The SpiderFoot and BiDiBLAH user interfaces are similar. Figure 3-8 shows SpiderFoot being used to enumerate hosts, domains, and users associated with Sony Corporation. Figure 3-8. Using SpiderFoot to perform host, domain, and user enumeration SpiderFoot is available for free download and use, but it requires a valid Google API key to perform querying.

Using SpiderFoot to perform host, domain, and user enumeration SpiderFoot is available for free download and use, but it requires a valid Google API key to perform querying. BiDiBLAH also requires a Google API key to use, and is a commercial tool that requires a license to use beyond an evaluation period. BiDiBLAH has many advanced features, including Nessus client functionality so that full vulnerability assessments can be run using the BiDiBLAH output.
