    Added Shodan-compatible favicon hash field
    Added a new `services.http.response.favicons.shodan_hash` field, which contains a hash that is built and formatted in the same way as Shodan's favicon hashes. This allows executing queries built for Shodan against the Censys dataset. To use the field, replace Shodan's `http.favicon.hash` field with Censys' [`services.http.response.favicons.shodan_hash: *`](https://search.censys.io/search/language?resource=hosts&q=services.http.response.favicons.shodan_hash%3A+*&sort=RELEVANCE&per_page=25&virtual_hosts=EXCLUDE) field. Values for the field will be filled in over the next few days, so results will be only partially-complete at first.

    Launch of Lite Certificates and Improved Certificate Performance
    Censys has re-enabled the Lite Certificates functionality of our Certificates Dataset to improve the stability and performance of Certificate queries. <br><br> Lite Certificates refers to a technique where Censys removes numerous indexed fields from our search index after a certificate has expired, allowing us to significantly shrink the amount of data needed to be stored and queried across. We expect this to increase the responsiveness and speed of Certificate queries, while still maintaining the most common fields used for searches such as names, fingerprints, serial numbers, subject information, and validity. <br><br> For more information, visit our help center article on [Censys Lite Certificates](https://support.censys.io/hc/en-us/articles/4405716032148-Censys-Lite-Certificates).

    Added New Protocol Scanner: DCERPC
    A new protocol scanner for DCERPC has been deployed. DCE/RPC is a protocol used for remote procedure calls and is commonly used by Microsoft RPC found on TCP port 135. Censys is currently conducting a one-time prioritized scan of port 135 over the next 48-72 hours to fully populate our dataset with DCERPC services. <br><br> Example Query: [`services.service_name: DCERPC`](https://search.censys.io/search?resource=hosts&sort=RELEVANCE&per_page=25&q=services.service_name%3A+DCERPC)

    General Availability of Historical Certificate APIs for All Users
    Two new Historical Certificate APIs are now available to all users. These endpoints allow users to inspect the observations of certificates across our entire collection historical scan data. <br><br> - [Certificate Observation History](https://search.censys.io/api#/certificates%20v2/getCertObservations) - Returns a list of observations containing hosts and their services which ever presented a given certificate fingerprint. <br><br> - [Host Certificate History](https://search.censys.io/api#/hosts/getCertsByHost) - Returns a list of observations containing certificates which were ever presented on a given host. <br><br> History is currently being back-populated for both of these APIs, and results are being populated from the most recent observations to the oldest. Please allow time for the full history to be populated and be made available. A future update will be provided when the process has completed and the full history is made available. <br><br> With this release, the [Hosts by Certificate](https://search.censys.io/api#/certificates%20v2/getHostsByCert) API is now deprecated and is scheduled for removal at a future date. Users should migrate to using the Search endpoint on the Host index using the `services.certificate={fingerprint}` query to find any hosts currently presenting a certificate. <br><br> For more information on getting started using the Search API, visit our [API Documentation](https://search.censys.io/api).

    Expose Pending Removal Service State
    When Censys rescans a known service and the scan is not successful, Censys will maintain the service in its dataset and continue to retry scanning the service. If the service still cannot be successfully scanned after a waiting period it is removed. <br><br> This pending removal state is now exposed to end users through a new field: `services.pending_removal_since` and is set to the timestamp when the service transitioned to the pending removal state. This field is available for search and available on each service in the lookup API. The hosts details page has also been updated to include a pill to highlight when a service is in the pending removal state. <br><br> Example Search query: [`services.pending_removal_since: *`](https://search.censys.io/search?resource=hosts&sort=RELEVANCE&per_page=25&virtual_hosts=EXCLUDE&q=services.pending_removal_since%3A+*)
