NTLMRecon is a fast and flexible NTLM reconnaissance tool without external dependencies. Useful to find out information about NTLM endpoints when working with a large set of potential IP addresses and domains.

NTLMRecon is built with flexibilty in mind. Need to run recon on a single URL, an IP address, an entire CIDR range or combination of all of it all put in a single input file? No problem! NTLMRecon got you covered. Read on.

NTLMRecon looks for NTLM enabled web endpoints, sends a fake authentication request and enumerates the following information from the NTLMSSP response:

  • AD Domain Name
  • Server name
  • DNS Domain Name
  • FQDN
  • Parent DNS Domain

Since NTLMRecon leverages a python implementation of NTLMSSP, it eliminates the overhead of running Nmap NSE http-ntlm-info for every successful discovery.

On every successful discovery of a NTLM enabled web endpoint, the tool enumerates and saves information about the domain as follows to a CSV file :

URLDomain NameServer NameDNS Domain NameFQDNDNS Domain



NTLMRecon is already packaged for BlackArch and can be installed by running pacman -S ntlmrecon


If you’re on Arch Linux or any Arch linux based distribution, you can grab the latest build from the Arch User Repository.

Example Usage

Recon on a single URL

$ ntlmrecon --input https://mail.contoso.com --outfile ntlmrecon.csv

Recon on a CIDR range or IP address

$ ntlmrecon --input --outfile ntlmrecon-ranges.csv

Recon on an input file

The tool automatically detects the type of input per line and takes actions accordingly. CIDR ranges are expanded by default (please note that there is no de-duplication baked in just yet!)

Input file can be something as mixed up as :


To run recon with an input file, just run :

$ ntlmrecon –infile /path/to/input/file –outfile ntlmrecon-fromfile.csv
