How to Gather Public Assets of an Organization using Reconx within Strobes


The purpose of Reconx is to gather the public facing assets of an organization. Reconx can be fed with three different types of input based on which it will gather the assets. The inputs which can be passed are the domain name, the subnet range or the Autonomous System Number (ASN). Once the assets are gathered, you can choose whether to populate the new assets into the Strobes dashboard or just view the results of the scan. You can also schedule these scans on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and Strobes will carry out the scans for you as scheduled.


Usage Flow Instructions

  • Navigate to 'Connectors' and click on 'Asset Discovery'.
  • Click on 'Reconx'.
