OSRFramework: Open Sources Research Framework

Copyright (C) 2014-2020 F. Brezo and Y. Rubio, i3visio

Version in PyPI License

1 - Description

OSRFramework is a GNU AGPLv3+ set of libraries developed by i3visio to perform Open Source Intelligence collection tasks. They include references to a bunch of different applications related to username checking, DNS lookups, information leaks research, deep web search, regular expressions extraction and many others. At the same time, by means of ad-hoc Maltego transforms, OSRFramework provides a way of making these queries graphically as well as several interfaces to interact with like OSRFConsole or a Web interface.

3 - Installation

Fast way to do it on any system for a user with administration privileges:

pip3 install osrframework

You can upgrade to the latest release of the framework with:

pip3 install osrframework --upgrade

This will manage all the dependencies for you and install the latest version of the framework.

If you needed further information on how to install OSRFramework on certain systems, note that you may need to add export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.local/bin to your ~/.bashrc_profile). This has been confirmed in some distributions, including MacOS. In any case, we recommend you yo have a look at the file where we provide additional details for these cases.

4 - Basic usage

If everything went correctly (we hope so!), it's time for trying usufy., mailfy and so on. But we are they ? They are installed in your path meaning that you can open a terminal anywhere and typing the name of the program (seems to be an improvement from previous installations...). Examples:

osrf --help
usufy -n i3visio febrezo yrubiosec -p twitter facebook
searchfy -q "i3visio"
mailfy -n i3visio

Type -h or --help to get more information about which are the parameters of each application.

You can find the configuration files in a folder created in your user home to define the default behaviour of the applications:

# Configuration files for Linux and MacOS
# Configuration files for Windows

OSRFramework will look for the configuration settings for each application stored there. You can add new credentials there and if something goes wrong, you can always restore the files stored in the defaults subfolder.

If you are experiencing problems, you might fight relevant information in the (FAQ Section)[doc/].
