Can someone explain to me how OWASP Amass correlates information regarding the intel module domain search?

As an example, if I run the command:

amass intel -d example.com -whois

I'll get a list of domains related to example.com.

How are all domains related? How does amass search for the related domains in the intel module?

    You've read the documentation? github.com/OWASP/Amass/blob/master/doc/… Do you know what "reverse whois" is?

  • @schroeder I was looking for a more indepth explanation than the one provided by amass documentation, therefrom I made this post... Aug 12 '20 at 14:10

    Ok, but explaining what you do know helps to prevent people from just linking to the documentation ...

    And, have you noticed that I provided a link to the source code where you can see, definitively, what the intel module does? (check out the comments in the code if you are having trouble interpreting the code itself.)
