Nmap er open source og gratis. Et værktøj til Sikkerhedsscanninger, portscanner og netværksudforskning. Kan køre på forskellige Linux systemer, Windows og Mac OS X. Nmap suite inkludere en avancered GUI (Zenmap) og command line (nmap). Nmap understøtter dusinvis af avancerede teknikker til at kortlægge netværket fyldt med IP-filtre, firewalls, routere og andre forhindringer. Mange omfattende port scannings mekanismer (både TCP & UDP), afsløring af OS version, ping sweeps, og mere.

Nmap reference guide

Nmap Scriptiong Engine (NSE) er et af Nmaps mest powerfulde og felxible funktioner. Designet til at være alsidig, med følgende opgaver i tankerne: network discovery, mere sofistikeret versions detektion, vulnerability detection, backdoor detection, vulnerability exploitation.

Nmap 7.40 ( https://nmap.org )

Usage: nmap [Scan Type(s)] [Options] {target specification}


Can pass hostnames, IP addresses, networks, etc.

-PS/PA/PU/PY[portlist]: TCP SYN/ACK, UDP or SCTP discovery to given ports

-PE/PP/PM: ICMP echo, timestamp, and netmask request discovery probes

-PO[protocol list]: IP Protocol Ping

-n/-R: Never do DNS resolution/Always resolve [default: sometimes]

–dns-servers <serv1[,serv2],…>: Specify custom DNS servers

-sC: equivalent to –script=default

–script=<Lua scripts>: <Lua scripts> is a comma separated list of

directories, script-files or script-categories

–script-args=<n1=v1,[n2=v2,…]>: provide arguments to scripts

–script-args-file=filename: provide NSE script args in a file

–script-trace: Show all data sent and received

–script-updatedb: Update the script database.

<Lua scripts> is a comma-separated list of script-files or



-O: Enable OS detection

  1. Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks

  2. obviously like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will certainly come back again.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I know well that there may be spelling issues in some older articles. As I write the articles in my spare time and each article takes some time to make. I will try to find time to find and fix it.
