OnionRunner, ElasticSearch & Maltego by Adam Maxwell.

From the post:

Last week Justin Seitz over at released OnionRunner which is basically a python wrapper (because Python is awesome) for the OnionScan tool (

At the bottom of Justin’s blog post he wrote this:

For bonus points you can also push those JSON files into Elasticsearch (or modify to do so on the fly) and analyze the results using Kibana!

Always being up for a challenge I’ve done just that. The script outputs each scan result as a json file, you have two options for loading this into ElasticSearch. You can either load your results after you’ve run a scan or you can load them into ElasticSearch as a scan runs. Now this might sound scary but it’s not, lets tackle each option separately.

A great enhancement to Justin’s original OnionRunner!

You will need a version of Maltego to perform the visualization as described. Not a bad idea to become familiar with Maltego in general.

Data is just data, until it is analyzed.
