InSpy : Enumeration Tool

Written by

HELLO Everyone!!

Today we’re gonna learn a very interesting Enumeration tool named as InSpy .


InSpy is a small but useful utility that performs enumeration on LinkedIn and can find people based on job title, company, or email address.

InSpy is a Python-based LinkedIn enumeration tool with two functionalities: TechSpy and EmpSpy.

  • TechSpy – Crawls LinkedIn job listings for technologies used by the provided company. InSpy attempts to identify technologies by matching job descriptions to keywords from a new line delimited file.
  • EmpSpy – Crawls LinkedIn for employees working at the provided company. InSpy searches for employees by title and/or departments from a new line delimited file. InSpy may also create emails for the identified employees if the user specifies an email format.
