masscan is fast, nmap can fingerprint software and vulners is a huge vulnerability database. Silver is a front-end that allows complete utilization of these programs by parsing data, spawning parallel processes, caching vulnerability data for faster scanning over time and much more.
Note: Silver isn’t compatible with Python 2.
- Resumable scanning
- Slack notifcations
- multi-core utilization
- Vulnerability data caching
- Smart Shodan integration*
*Shodan integration is optional but when linked, Silver can automatically use Shodan to retrieve service and vulnerability data if a host has a lot of ports open to save resources. Shodan credits used per scan by Silver can be throttled. The minimum number of ports to trigger Shodan can be configured as well.
Note: Silver scans all TCP ports by default i.e. ports
Scan host(s) from command line
python3 silver.py 127.0.0.1
python3 silver.py 127.0.0.1/22
python3 silver.py 127.0.0.1,127.0.0.2,127.0.0.3
Scan top ~1000 ports
python3 silver.py 127.0.0.1 --quick
Scan hosts from a file
python3 silver.py -i /path/to/targets.txt
Set max number of parallel nmap instances
python3 silver.py -i /path/to/targets.txt -t 4
Slack WebHook, Shodan API key and limits can be configured by editing respective variables in
Setting up Slack notifications
- Create a workspace on slack, here
- Create an app, here
- Enable WebHooks from the app and copy the URL from there to Silver’s
