Any experienced Pentester will tell you that the enumeration and reconnaissance phases of a Penetration Test are probably the most important parts of any Security Assessment. The problems many Pentesters face these days is the sheer volume of different tools available and which one(s) to use.

Thankfully there is an answer for the Enumeration Phase. A great tool with a nice GUI has been developed and best of all it’s absolutely free and has been integrated into Kali Linux 2.0. Of course it can also be downloaded as a standalone on Github.

It’s called Sparta:¬†https://github.com/SECFORCE/sparta¬†

An extremely powerful tool which goes beyond NMAP, SMTP, SNMP, NetBIOS, FTP etc. but also includes fancy tools like dirbuster and other nice Web Assessment tools all through 1 single user interface.
