Create information gathering test application

It is time again for an extensive tutorial. This time, a tiny test application for passive and active information gathering. After the instruction you are welcome to improve the application with more features! Okay let’s start…

What should it do?

The security tester selects a information gathering method first. As second step the testers insert the URL or IP in a testfield and press a button. The result should printed out in a text area. The GUI should look like this:

Sensei Mockup

How it is implemented?

The prefered language is Python 2.7. So it is portable to different OS and for the most of methods are already packages available. The GUI is done with Tkinter. Tkinter provides all objects which are needed as widgets and ranges for this scope out completely. The file and folder structure look like:

File content

Files in root directory:

Files in essential:

Files in gathering:

That was it. The result looks like this:
