A long time ago, I added the ability to share search queries with other people by adding them to the Search Directory. It’s developed into the easiest way to get started with finding devices, especially when it comes to locating some of the more obscure things on the Internet. Since launch, people have shared close to 1,000 different queries through the directory and it just keeps on growing. Unfortunately, that has made it near impossible to navigate all the queries and the only ones people paid attention to were the most popular and most recent. To solve that problem I’m introducing the new ability to search the directory:
On the right side of the screen there’s a new input box that will let you search the directory. There’s not much more to it than typing in the type of device you’re looking for and seeing whether anybody else has already been able to find it for you. For example, here are some search queries to locate wind farms through Shodan:
I hope this will make somebody’s life easier, let me know what you think!
