Nmap / Zenmap

In this article we will discuss Nmap / Zenmap, will make brief discussion on Nmap / Zenmap, In last article we discuss about Plixer Scrutinizer.

I personally use Nmap at least once a week. Almost verbatim from their website: Nmap (Network Mapper) is a security scanner used to discover hosts and services on a computer network, thus creating a “map” of the network. To accomplish its goal, Nmap sends specially crafted packets to the target host and then analyzes the responses.

Nmap provides an incredible number of features for probing networks, including host discovery, service discovery and operating system detection. These features are extensible by scripts that provide more advanced service detection, vulnerability detection, and other features. In fact, Nmap is used in the backend for various security assessment tools such as Nexpose.

Again, if you’re more a fan of GUIs, make sure the download the bundle with Zenmap.
