The recommended way to install Cilician is by using Composer:

$ composer global require "jgxvx/cilician-runner"

The installation can be verified by invoking

$ cilician --version
Cilician Runner 0.1.0

If the cilician executable is not found, make sure the global Composer directory is in the PATH, or symlink the executable to a location in your PATH, e.g.

$ ln -s ~/.composer/vendor/bin/cilician /usr/local/bin/cilician



To see a list of available commands, run

$ cilician list

To get help for a specific command, run

$ cilician help <command>


The -v option can be passed to all commands for more verbose output.

Check a Password

To see if a password has appeared in one or more breaches, run

$ cilician password 12345678 -v

Getting All Breaches for an Account

To see if the account john@doe.com has been breached, simply run

$ cilician breaches john@doe.com -v

To narrow down the search to a specific domain:

$ cilician breaches john@doe.com --domain=example.com -v

By default, only verified breaches are returned. To include unverified breaches, pass the following option to the command:

$ cilician breaches john@doe.com --include-unverified -v

Getting All Breached Sites in the System

To see a list of breached sites, run

$ cilician sites -v

This too, can be filtered by domain:

$ cilician sites --domain=example.com -v

Getting a Single Breached Site

To get information on a specific site, run

$ cilician site Adobe -v

Getting All Data Classes in the System

To get a list of all available data classes in the system, run

$ cilician data-classes

Getting All Pastes for an Account

Similar to breaches, a search can be made for all pastes of an account:

$ cilician pastes john@doe.com -v

Clearing the Cache

Cilician Runner uses a filesystem-based cache to optimise the requests made to the API. The cache directory is located at ./.cache in the root directory of your Cilician installation.

To clear the cache, run

$ cilician clear-cache
