Python API wrapper and command-line client for the tools hosted on

"Spyse is a developer of complete DAAS (Data-As-A-Service) solutions for Internet security professionals, corporate and remote system administrators, SSL / TLS encryption certificate providers, data centers and business analysts. All Spyse online solutions are represented by thematic services that have a single platform for collecting, processing and aggregating information." -

Supports the following APIs:

NOTE: This API is currently under active development.

What's New

July 6th 2019

  • Query searches.
  • Parameter detection.
  • Support for the domains_starts_with* options (library only)
  • Default parameters.


pip3 install


pip3 install --upgrade

Using the client

Required Arguments

  • -target

Optional Arguments

  • -param
  • -page
  • -apikey
  • --raw

What is the param argument?

Spyse allows you to search their database for IPs, IP ranges, domain names, URLs, etc. The parameter argument is meant to specify the type of your input.

As of July 6th 2019, most of the functions do not require you to set a parameter unless you'd like to override the default one.

For example, the default parameter for --domains-on-ip is ip, however you can override this parameter and search by CIDR, or organization instead. You should only need to do this if you're getting an error message, as parameter detection has also been added.

The detection is quite simple:

# detect whether input is cidr or ip or search query (q)
if "/" in
  param = "cidr"
elif ":" in
  param = "q"
  param = "ip"

The detection varies from function to function, as certain functions require different default parameters.

List of parameters

  • cidr
  • domain
  • ip
  • page
  • url
  • hash
  • q

Using search queries

Much like Shodan, Spyse allows you to use search queries.

spyse -target "org: Microsoft" --ssl-certificates

Searching for subdomains

spyse -target --subdomains

Reverse IP Lookup

spyse -target --domains-on-ip

Searching for SSL certificates

spyse -target --ssl-certificates
spyse -target "org: Microsoft" --ssl-certificates

Getting all DNS records

spyse -target --dns-all

Manually overriding the parameter argument

spyse -target -param domain --subdomains

Navigating multiple pages using your API key

export SPYSEKEY="yourkeyhere"
spyse -target -apikey $SPYSEKEY -page 2 ---ssl-certificates

Piping to jq and aquatone

Initially when I decided to write this client I really wanted it to focus on flexibility within the command-line, which is why there is the --raw option. From there you can work with the raw JSON returned by the API.

spyse -target --dns-soa --raw | jq


spyse -target -param domain --subdomains --raw | aquatone

Usage: spyse -target --subdomains

Using the library

Without API Key

from spyse import spyse

s = spyse()
subdomains = s.subdomains("", param="domain")

With API Key

from spyse import spyse

# Using the API key allows us to go through multiple pages of results
s = spyse('API_TOKEN_GOES_HERE')
subdomains = s.subdomains_aggregate("", param="domain", page=2)

Search using CIDR

from spyse import spyse

s = spyse()
results = s.domains_on_ip("", param="cidr")

Work with an existing file

from spyse import spyse

s = spyse()
results = []

with open("domains.txt") as d:
    for line in d:
        # default value for param="domain", so we don't
        # need to specify here
        r = s.subdomains_aggregate(line)
