What is openSquat?
openSquat is an opensource Intelligence (OSINT) R&D project to identify cyber squatting threats to specific companies or domains, such as:
IDN homograph attacks
This is an opensource project so everyone’s welcomed to contribute.
It does support some key features such as:
Automatic newly registered domain updating (once a day)
Levenshtein distance to calculate word similarity
IDN homograph attack detection
Use different levels of confidence threshold to fine tune
Save output into different formats (txt, JSON and CSV)
Can be integrated with other threat intelligence tools and DNS sinkholes
The openSquat project is an open-source solution for detecting phishing domains and domain squatting. It searches for newly registered domains that impersonate legitimate domains on a daily basis. This project aims to help protect individuals and organizations from cyber threats by identifying and alerting them to potentially malicious domains.
