Summary0002349: InstaRecon v0.1.1 - automated digital reconnaissance
DescriptionHi there. I'd like to suggest my tool to be part of Kali. It's called InstaRecon

Its focus is to automate getting the 'low-hanging fruit' of recon. After gathering common DNS/Whois results, it queries Google to get subdomains and urls (using the 'site:*.<domain> -www.<domain> -etc.<domain>' dork), and it does DNS queries recursively on every new possible target found. It gets open ports and banners from Shodan as well, among other things.

Some, but not all, of the functionality overlap a little with dnsenum and recon-ng, however the idea of being a simple, non-modular script that gathers the most information with as little effort as possible makes it a very good option to start a reconnaissance with.

It's a breeze to install dependencies in Kali (pip install -r requirements.txt). Please give it a try, I think it can be very useful.

For the time being, sticking with dnsenum and recon-ng
