Why this tool?

Like other S3 bucket scanners, inSp3ctor helps to find valid storage buckets on Amazon's AWS platform. This can be useful for security assignments like penetration testing or see what information is available about a company. Another option is using it to see if any private data is leaking.

How it works

With inSp3ctor you can use both a preloaded wordlist or have the tool perform common permutations to discover bucket names. All entries are checked to see if there is a valid S3 bucket. When it finds one, it will show if it is open, private, or has a redirect.

Usage and audience

inSp3ctor is commonly used for penetration testing, security assessment, or storage security testing. Target users for this tool are pentesters and security professionals.
