2019 National Cyber Summit

Shodan Founder John Matherly to Speak at the National Cyber Summit for Second Year in a Row

The National Cyber Summit was glad to welcome back John Matherly, founder of Internet of Things search engine Shodan, to be a keynote speaker at the National Cyber Summit.

Shodan provides data feeds on all devices directly connected to the Internet. The information is obtained via a globally distributed, real-time network of crawlers that find devices based on the software they run. For each device, Shodan stores the software it runs (including version), operating system, hostnames, location and much more. The processed data feeds are also made accessible through a public search engine website.

Shodan can conduct bulk search and processing queries using SHODAN Diggity, Bishop Fox’s free search engine attack tool suite. The free tool provides an easy-to-use scanning interface to the popular hacking search engine via the SHODAN API. It can discover which of your devices are connected to the Internet, where they are located and who is using them.
