ReconAIzer: OpenAI-based Extension for Burp Suite

Burp Suite, the renowned Bug Bounty Hunting and Web Application Penetration Testing tool, has been improvised with many extensions over the years. Many of Burp’s Extensions have been used by Bug Bounty Hunters and Security Researchers for various purposes.

It has been nearly a year since the introduction of ChatGPT by OpenAI. Several sectors have implemented ChatGPT for various business reasons. The Cyber Security sector has also been explored under any circumstances for the integration of the GPT model, which could help cover more threats and alerts.

ReconAIzer – OpenAI-based Burp Extension

ReconAIzer has been introduced as an Open-Source Jython extension that uses OpenAI to help Bug Bounty hunters significantly improve their recon process. This extension is capable of discovering endpoints, params, URLs, subdomains, and much more.

The prerequisites of this tool are a Burp Suite Application and a Jython Standalone JAR, which helps to integrate Python and Java codes. Once this extension is added, it creates a contextual menu and a dedicated tab in Burp Suite for viewing the results.

For the prerequisites, the Jython standalone can be downloaded on this link.  This standalone installer can then be chosen from the “Extensions > Extensions settings” tab. Under the “Python Environment,” click on “Select file” and choose the downloaded Jython Standalone Installer.


After following the steps for installation mentioned in the GitHub repository, Users must configure their OpenAI API key on the “Config” tab under “ReconAIzer” tab. The OpenAI API key can be found in this link.
