classified manner all the information. All Sections are separated into parts in case you only want to extract a specific type of information, but it also has the penultimate option that combines all the Options so that it can extract everything it is capable of from the data that we have entered.
The Name: Unveiling “The Black Tiger”
In the world of cybersecurity and OSINT, a tool’s name can carry significant meaning. “The Black Tiger” is no exception. The name draws inspiration from a real-life hero of espionage, Ravindra Kaushik, also known as “The Black Tiger.”
Ravindra Kaushik, an Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent, dedicated his life to serving his country as a spy from 1975 to 1983. His remarkable contributions and unwavering dedication to the cause have earned him a place in the annals of Indian history as one of the greatest spies the nation has ever known.
As a tribute to the courage, dedication, and relentless pursuit of knowledge exemplified by Ravindra Kaushik, “The Black Tiger” OSINT tool stands as a symbol of tenacity in the world of digital investigation. It embodies the spirit of its namesake, helping users unveil hidden truths and navigate the intricate web of online information.
Much like the real Black Tiger left an indelible mark on India’s intelligence landscape, my tool aspires to leave a lasting impact on the field of OSINT. With its powerful features and capabilities, it’s a fitting homage to the legacy of a true espionage legend.

Key Points to keep in mind:
When using The Black Tiger, it’s crucial to pay attention to specific details and considerations to ensure a smooth experience. Here are some key points to keep in mind:
User Permissions Matter:
During the installation and configuration of requirements, when prompted to add a user, make sure to select a user who does not have root permissions. Using a root user or entering the information incorrectly can impact the functionality of certain options that open a browser from the terminal. Be cautious and precise in this step to avoid potential issues.
To maximize the utility of The Black Tiger, consider configuring APIs from veriphone.io, shodan.io, and zoomeye.org. These APIs are free and can enhance the tool’s capabilities. Properly configuring these APIs will help you extract valuable information during your investigations.
VPN and Server Accuracy:
When using The Black Tiger to gather public IP information, keep in mind that VPNs can sometimes lead to inaccurate server responses regarding open ports. To overcome this, the tool comes equipped with several scanners, and two of them can provide more accurate port information even when a VPN is in use.
The Black Tiger is designed to open multiple tabs in your web browser. To ensure a seamless experience, it’s recommended to have Firefox closed before running the tool. This precaution will help prevent potential errors and ensure that the tool can function as intended.
Optimal Terminal Usage:
For a visually pleasing experience, it’s advisable to use The Black Tiger with the terminal in full-screen mode. This configuration not only looks better but also provides a more comfortable environment for conducting your investigations.
If you’ve downloaded an older version of the tool, consider uninstalling it and then reinstalling the latest version,
along with its requirements. Doing so can help resolve errors and provide access to improvements that significantly enhance the tool’s functionality. Staying up to date ensures you can take full advantage of the latest features and enhancements.
