Tool and Usage

ident-user-enum is a Perl script to query the ident service, which runs on TCP port 113. It tries to figure out the owner of running processes on the target.


The ident-user-enum tool provides enumeration capabilities and can be helpful for pentests or security assessments. By using the ident service on TCP port 113, the usernames might be discoverable of other processes running on the target system. These usernames can be used for other goals, like password guessing attacks.
