So what is this subfinder tool all about?

Subfinder is a subdomain discovery tool that discovers valid subdomains for websites by using passive online sources. It has a simple modular architecture and is optimized for speed. subfinder is built for doing one thing only – passive subdomain enumeration, and it does that very well.

It is designed as a subfinder to comply with all passive sources licenses, and usage restrictions, as well as maintaining a consistently passive model to make it useful to both penetration testers and bug bounty hunters alike.

Subfinder Installation

There are three different ways to install the subfinder.

  • From Binary

It is the easiest way to install, download the pre-built binaries from the releases page. Download the only binary which is compatible with your system. Extract them using tar and move the binary to your? “`$PATH“`.

How Subfinder works

To start scanning the target domain, provide the subfinder the domain in the following format.

subfinder -d <domain_name>

The tool makes the request to different sources to fetch the subdomains such as shodan,virustotal,censys, etc.

To store the output in a file, the following command is used.

Subfinder -d domain-name -o results.txt

To use all the sources and show only the subdomain the following command is used.

subfinder -all -silent -d domain-name -o result.txt

What Bunny rating does it get?

The tool is helpful in identifying subdomains passively utilising various sources with great speed and efficiency, as a result, we will be awarding this tool a rating of 4 out of 5 bunnies.
