Recon Pi

ReconPi Github

ReconPi - A lightweight recon tool that performs extensive domain scanning with the latest tools using a Raspberry Pi, Golang and Docker. After the script has been run the ReconPi only requires an internet connection and some power, easy does it.

The source code is available at


  • Raspberry Pi 3+ + cables (Power and Ethernet)
  • Keyboard + monitor (optional)
  • SD card, 8 GB minimum (16 GB recommended)
  • Re4son Pi Kernel
  • Etcher

Initial setup

Download the latest image from or use this direct download link.

After downloading the latest .img.xz file we need to flash this image to the SD card. I would recommend using Etcher to do this, I never had any issue with flashing an image so far and it’s super easy.

Select the downloaded image and insert your SD card. Etcher will automatically detect the card and you can simply continue by clicking on “Flash!”.

Attach all the cables to the Raspberry Pi, you can choose to use the SSH method or use a keyboard and monitor. I will be using the SSH method but all of the commands can be used with a monitor and keyboard as well.

SSH is disabled by default on the Raspbian images. To enable this either run kalipi-config after attaching the Pi to a screen and keyboard or place a file (without extension) called ssh inside the boot partition of the newly flashed SD card. (The Re4son Pi Kernel might have SSH enabled by default)

Preparing the system

All the physical preparations are done now, time to prepare the system itself!

Find the ip address of the Recon Pi:

# run ifconfig to find your own IP address.

sudo nmap -sn | grep -B 2 Pi

# Example output

Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.0014s latency).
MAC Address: B8:27:EB:89:94:D8 (Raspberry Pi Foundation)

Login to the RPi with SSH:

# Replace the IP address with your own.

ssh [email protected]

Default username and password for this image: root:toor

To install all the required tools follow the steps below:

Download the ReconPi repository:

git clone

Navigate to the ReconPi directory:

cd ReconPi

Run the install script:

# Do NOT use sudo, it has issues with the creation of directories

Grab a cup of coffee, this will take a few minutes.

When the script is done it will execute a reboot command due to all the changes that have been made.

First run

All tools are now configured and ready to go, you can log back in to run your first scan!

Run the script:

recon domain.tld

The script will run all the scans and you can just sit back and relax (again :D).

A dashboard will be started when the scan is done and the plan is to send scan results to the dashboard. This way you will be able to monitor your assets from your local network!
