NtHiM - Super Fast Sub-domain Takeover Detection



Method 1: Using Pre-compiled Binaries

The pre-compiled binaries for different systems are available in the Releases page. You can download the one suitable for your system, unzip the file and start using NtHiM.

Method 2: Using Crates.io

NtHiM is available on Crates.io. So, if you have Rust installed on your system, you can simply install NtHiM with the following command:

cargo install NtHiM

Method 3: Manual Build

You will need Cargo to perform the manual build for NtHiM. If you have Cargo installed, you can simply follow the steps below:

  1. Clone this repository, git clone https://github.com/TheBinitGhimire/NtHiM;
  2. Go inside the folder, cd NtHiM;
  3. Use the cargo build command,
  4. Go inside the newly-created target folder, and open the debug folder inside it, cd target/debug;
  5. You will find NtHiM.exe (on Microsoft Windows) or NtHiM binary (on most of the other platforms).

Before doing a manual build of NtHiM or installing through Crates.io with cargo, you might need to have OpenSSL installed in your system. Sometimes if you get an error during the manual building process, then the odds of the reason being due to OpenSSL are high. Please check out the issue #1 to figure out a solution for this issue.

The installation walkthrough for NtHiM has been uploaded to YouTube, covering all of these three methods, and you can watch the video here: How to Install and Use NtHiM (Now, the Host is Mine!)? Super Fast Sub-domain Takeover Detection!


Flag Description Example
-h Display help related to usage! NtHiM -h
-t Scan a single target! NtHiM -t https://example.example.com
-f Scan a list of targets from a file! NtHiM -f hostnames.txt
-c Number of Concurrent Threads! NtHiM -c 100 -f hostnames.txt
-s Timeout for connections (in seconds)! NtHiM -s 4 -f hostnames.txt
-v Enable Verbose Mode! NtHiM -v -f hostnames.txt
-o Write output to file! NtHiM -f hostnames.txt -o output.txt
-u Update signature cache! NtHiM -u
-V Display the version information! NtHiM -V

By default, NtHiM uses 10 concurrent threads, and 5 seconds of timeout for connections.

Use Case 1 (Single Target):

NtHiM -t https://example.example.com

Use Case 2 (Multiple Targets):

NtHiM -f hostnames.txt
