Nmap : Most popular network security tool in the world.

Posted by Suntrekker on February 9, 2008

December’s release of Nmap 4.50 marked the popular port-scanning tool’s tenth anniversary. A cross-platform GUI front end for Nmap which includes a command creation wizard, a scripting engine, and a host of other improvements called Zenmap.

Nmap offers much more in its GUI and at the command line than we’ve covered here. If you haven’t used Nmap before, reading its documentation will improve both the speed and scope of your learning curve.

Professionals and casual users alike can benefit and learn from this tool. If I had a “must have” list of all the apps I use, Nmap would rank near the top. If you’re not familiar with it, grab it and give it a go.
