Building Blocks


See which ports an IP has open, what SSL/ TLS versions it supports, which country it's located in, what web technologies the website uses and much more.


Shodan has a curated DNS database that contains information about hostnames likely to run a service. Use it to help map out your organization's attack surface.


Subscribe to real-time data feeds to get notified when new ports are detected, vulnerabilities are discovered or network configurations change.

Easy Integration

The Shodan API is the easiest way to provide users of your tool access to the Shodan data. The API provides access to all data stored in Shodan, allowing you to get exactly the information you want.

Automate Everything

Use the API to automatically generate reports, notify you if something popped up on Shodan or keep track of results over time.

Beyond the Web

The Shodan website only shows a small fraction of the information that is gathered. Use the API to gain full access to all the data collected and extract the information you care about.

Real-Time Notifications

The Streaming API gives you the ability to subscribe to events in real-time so you can immediately respond to new discoveries.
