What are we doing

Our Probes are designed to report on the usage patterns of various services on the Internet. Sometimes this involves identifying the hardware, the location, the operators, the behaviours and sometimes even the software that make up the 4,294,967,296 possible addresses. More

Scan of the IPv4 Space, Web Services (Port 80 Open)Nov 19 5:00 2017 PST

This probe is to discover all the currently accessible web services (Port 80) to discover IP Address that are listening for connections, and to audit changes, analyze demographics and create meta data on worldwide distribution. The data set will be used for later advanced probes, that report on web service information.
Note: Simple TCP probe, only to Port 80, max 3 times/month/ip

Total IPs:3,669,804,408

Total IPs scanned:3,529,113,600

Total IPs remaining:140,690,808

Percentage completed:96.17%

SMTP Cross Verification completed! Oct 20 18:24 2017 PDT

Using SMTP Cross verification against publicly accessible Web Services helps to further identify information regarding the operating environment, and to help determine various grouping(s) of IPv4 space, and whether a single Web Service is responsible for one or more IP Addresses. An example data set is shared publicly, to indicate the popularity and distribution of several common web platforms, and operating system distribution. For access to the complete set of Meta data from this probe, we do make this information available on a subscription basis. Note: various firewall policies and redirections can affect the accuracy of meta data depending on access to the SMTP Port

Scan of Publicly Accessible WebServices completed! Oct 18 6:43 2017 PDT

This month's scan of the publicly accessible Web Services (Port 80) is now complete. We have gathered data that will be used in later reports, in order to publicly share information such as the number of servers of a specific type that operate around the world, including demographics etc. If you wish to have access to the Meta data of this probe, we do offer subscription access. As well, we can provide specific information sets on a custom basis. Numbers may fluctuate on a month to month basis, depending whether dynamically assigned IP Addresses are included in the results.
