root@kali:~# ident-user-enum 192.168.1.13 22 139 445 ident-user-enum v1.0 ( http://pentestmonkey.net/tools/ident-user-enum ) 192.168.1.13:22 root 192.168.1.13:139 root 192.168.1.13:445 root
Packages and Binaries:
This package is a simple PERL script to query the ident service (113/TCP) in order to determine the owner of the process listening on each TCP port of a target system.
This can help to prioritise target service during a pentest (you might want to attack services running as root first). Alternatively, the list of usernames gathered can be used for password guessing attacks on other network services.
How to install:
sudo apt install ident-user-enum
