Swiss Army Knife Internet Tool

Today, I've been introduced a new online tool to perform information gathering, called robtex.

With rotex, we can search for:
  • RBL checks multible RBL
  • DNS checks: detailed DNS information for a hostname or a domain
  • IP-number checks: IP number information such as DNS reverse/forwards
  • C-net checks an entire c-network
  • WHOIS lookup checks.
  • Route: checks a specific routed prefix
  • AS numbers: checks information on an AS-number
  • BGP announcements: checks prefixes origined from a specific AS-number
  • AS macros: checks who belongs to an AS-macro (example: as-ams-ix-peers)
  • RFC documents.
