πŸ’‘ Usage

# Example Scan Commands:
  ## Start a simple scan with default 'general' flow
  osmedeus scan -t sample.com

  ## Start a general scan but exclude some of the module
  osmedeus scan -t sample.com -x screenshot -x spider

  ## Start a scan directly with a module with inputs as a list of http domains like this https://sub.example.com
  osmedeus scan -m content-discovery -t http-file.txt

  ## Initiate the scan using a speed option other than the default setting
  osmedeus scan -f vuln --tactic gently -t sample.com
  osmedeus scan --threads-hold=10 -t sample.com
  osmedeus scan -B 5 -t sample.com

  ## Start a simple scan with other flow
  osmedeus scan -f vuln -t sample.com
  osmedeus scan -f extensive -t sample.com -t another.com
  osmedeus scan -f urls -t list-of-urls.txt

  ## Scan list of targets
  osmedeus scan -T list_of_targets.txt
  osmedeus scan -f vuln -T list-of-targets.txt

  ## Performing static vulnerability scan and secret scan on a git repo
  osmedeus scan -m repo-scan -t https://github.com/j3ssie/sample-repo
  osmedeus scan -m repo-scan -t /tmp/source-code-folder
  osmedeus scan -m repo-scan -T list-of-repo.txt

  ## Scan for CIDR with file contains CIDR with the format ''
  osmedeus scan -f cidr -t list-of-ciders.txt
  osmedeus scan -f cidr -t '' # this will auto convert the single input to the file and run

  ## Directly run on vuln scan and directory scan on list of domains
  osmedeus scan -f domains -t list-of-domains.txt
  osmedeus scan -f vuln-and-dirb -t list-of-domains.txt

  ## Use a custom wordlist
  osmedeus scan -t sample.com -p 'wordlists={{Data}}/wordlists/content/big.txt'

  ## Use a custom wordlist
  cat list_of_targets.txt | osmedeus scan -c 2

  ## Start a normal scan and backup entire workflow folder to the backup folder
  osmedeus scan --backup -f domains -t list-of-subdomains.txt

  ## Start the scan with chunk inputs to review the output way more much faster
  osmedeus scan --chunk --chunk-parts 20 -f cidr -t list-of-100-cidr.txt

  ## Continuously run the scan on a target right after it finished
  osmedeus utils cron --for --cmd 'osmedeus scan -t example.com'

  ## Backing up all workspaces
  ls ~/workspaces-osmedeus | osmedeus report compress

# Scan Usage:
  osmedeus scan -f [flowName] -t [target]
  osmedeus scan -m [modulePath] -T [targetsFile]
  osmedeus scan -f /path/to/flow.yaml -t [target]
  osmedeus scan -m /path/to/module.yaml -t [target] --params 'port=9200'
  osmedeus scan -m /path/to/module.yaml -t [target] -l /tmp/log.log
  osmedeus scan --tactic aggressive -m module -t [target]
  cat targets | osmedeus scan -f sample

# Practical Scan Usage:
  osmedeus scan -T list_of_targets.txt -W custom_workspaces
  osmedeus scan -t target.com -w workspace_name --debug
  osmedeus scan -f general -t sample.com
  osmedeus scan --tactic aggressive -f general -t sample.com
  osmedeus scan -f extensive -t sample.com -t another.com
  cat list_of_urls.txt | osmedeus scan -f urls
  osmedeus scan --threads-hold=15 -f cidr -t
  osmedeus scan -m ~/.osmedeus/core/workflow/test/dirbscan.yaml -t list_of_urls.txt
  osmedeus scan --wfFolder ~/custom-workflow/ -f your-custom-workflow -t list_of_urls.txt
  osmedeus scan --chunk --chunk-part 40 -c 2 -f cidr -t list-of-cidr.txt
