Building a Search Engine Of Insecure Things

Launched in October: Censys is a search engine for the “Internet of Things. The Internet of INSECURE things. “Censys collects data on hosts and websites through daily scans of the IPv4 address space – the internet protocol that routes most internet traffic today, despite the ongoing deployment of a successor protocol, IPv6. The search engine uses two companion tools: an open-source network scanner, known as ZMap, that probes every computer online in mere minutes, and the application layer scanner ZGrab.”
