Revolutionize Network Reconnaissance with AI-Powered CensysGPT: Simplify Queries & Enhance Security


At Censys we pride ourselves on being innovators and encourage creativity, experimentation and collaboration amongst our team. During our 2023 Hackathon, we challenged our engineering team to develop ideas for new solutions that would improve our customer experience and make our product more accessible. Our integrations team rose to the challenge with an exciting idea – CensysGPT.

With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies, organizations are leveraging these tools to simplify complexity and enhance cybersecurity defenses. AI is revolutionizing the cybersecurity market in profound ways and our integrations team saw an opportunity to leverage the power of AI to make learning and using our Censys Search query language more accessible.

We are excited to announce that our CensysGPT Beta is now available for everyone to experiment with!

CensysGPT harnesses the power of AI to enable users to express their search queries using natural language, significantly reducing the learning curve typically associated with mastering Censys Search Language. Additionally, CensysGPT can translate queries from Shodan, Zoomeye, and SecurityTrails into Censys Search Language, allowing users to harness the capabilities of various platforms without the need to learn the syntax of each.

By simplifying query-building, CensysGPT empowers users to quickly and easily gain insights into hosts on the internet. Using this new process, security teams, researchers and IT professionals will find it easier than ever to learn, use and discover vulnerabilities, analyze patterns, and defend against threats with Censys Search.

Using CensysGPT is as simple as inputting a query such as: “Show me all servers in Australia that have both FTP and HTTP services,” CensysGPT will then correctly return::

Similarly, when the input is: “Services in Brazil with the HTML title ‘Index of /’,” the tool returns:

Another example is when users provide the input: “Latitude: 51.5164 Longitude: -0.1190,” the output generated is:

Moreover, when the input is a Shodan-style query: “country:”BZ” html:”Index Page””, CensysGPT accurately translates it to:

In summary, CensysGPT is a game-changing tool that has the potential to significantly enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of network reconnaissance. By simplifying query inputs, translating competitor searches, and facilitating the extraction of valuable insights from network data, CensysGPT empowers security researchers and IT professionals to tackle security challenges with unprecedented ease. CensysGPT is available now for testing and experimentation – we can’t wait to hear what you think!
