Idea is to have software enumerated via favicon.ico. How to do that? Take hash (in our case MD5) of favicon.ico and compare it against the known database. This project is about the favicon database itself and process in how to get the database of most frequent ones by crawling internet.

So, project has started the adventure of getting the statistics of MD5 fingerprints of most usual favicons.ico. We have faced problems how to enumerate http(s) hosts on Internet. Currently, we have recognized two types of http servers which we want to cover. First type is http servers on network devices and appliances and the second type is normal web servers with virtual hosts support.

You can read process, problem and solution on OWASP_favicon_database_crawl.
