Intrigue Core is an attack surface discovery engine that utilizes OSINT and reconnaissance techniques to help organizations find assets and vulnerabilities. It’s designed for security professionals in both assessment and defensive use cases. The core engine is written in Ruby and designed around the concepts of tasks, entities, and machines. The framework is highly flexible and can be used entirely via API. 

Core makes it easy to perform a discovery on a given organization. Given a domain or other seed, it finds assets, applications, and systems related that organization through a variety of methods (tasks). 

Intrigue Ident is the application and service fingerprinting library that powers Intrigue Core. It can also be used in standalone mode. For more information on Ident, see: Using Intrigue Ident for Application Fingerprinting 

Intrigue Core also powers the intelligence behind Intrigue.io.
