Sifter is a osint, recon & vulnerability scanner. It combines a plethara of tools within different module sets in order to quickly perform recon tasks, check network firewall, enumerate remote and local hosts, and scan for the ‘blue’ vulnerabilities within microsft and if unpatched, exploit them.

It uses tools like blackwidow and konan for webdir enumeration and attack surface mapping rapidly using ASM. Gathered info is saved to the results folder, these output files can be easily parsed over to TigerShark in order to be utilized within your campaign. Or compiled for a final report to wrap up a penetration test.
