Quickpost: nmap & xml

Filed under: Networking,Quickpost — Didier Stevens @ 20:46

A quick tip: since more than a year now I’ve been including xml output with each nmap scan I perform. I discovered that the xml output contains more (explicit) data than the other forms of output.

Example:

nmap -oG test.csv -oX test.xml scanme.nmap.org

Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-11-23 05:05 EST
Nmap scan report for scanme.nmap.org (74.207.244.221)
Host is up (0.65s latency).
Not shown: 997 closed ports
PORT     STATE SERVICE
22/tcp   open  ssh
80/tcp   open  http
9929/tcp open  nping-echo

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 1.19 seconds

The grepable output:

20131125-214105

The xml output:

20131125-214254
