Mastering the Nmap Scripting Engine (Free PDF)

File Size: 1.49 Mb

Mastering the Nmap Scripting Engine will take you through the process of developing Lua scripts for the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE). The Nmap Scripting Engine’s capabilities are explored throughout 10 chapters. They cover the fundamental concepts, operations, and libraries to teach you how to extend Nmap scans with custom tasks.

The information I selected for this book attempts to answer one of the most common questions received on the Nmap development mailing list: “How do I start writing NSE scripts?” I have tried to explain each of the concepts with examples and specific task implementations. Expect to read a lot of code! The only way of truly learning something is by practicing, so don’t just skim through the book; stop at each chapter and attempt to write new NSE scripts.
