That's it Nmap is a free, open source security scanner used to control network and security.
- Network inventory
- managing schedules of the services offered
- monitoring slot
- or service uptime
It uses a series of IP packets that are shipped and then collected information from them.
Nmap determines which machines are available on the network, what services or hosts they offer, which operating systems are in progress, what types of firewall are in use, and much more.
Nmap 7.40 comes with new NSE scripts and includes Nmap 7.31 with raw 802.11 Wi-Fi capture support. New NSE scripts will help you with IP geolocation with images from Bing Maps, Google Maps APIs, data from ip-geolocation-map-kml. In addition, nje-pass-brute supports brute-forcing on the NJE node's password.
The new version comes with additional support for brute-forcing on Drupal sites with http-form-brute, and improved http-default-accounts script with 21 new fingerprints.
