Nmap Automator is a great tool for initial port scans of a given ip address. It automates the scan techniques which I use on each host, I selected it over any other similar tool since it avoids unnecessary scanning.
Installation and usage
git clone https://github.com/21y4d/nmapAutomator
After adding the vulners.nse nmap script to the right directory the tool will use CVE scripts, nikto, smbmap, gobuster to fully scan the target host with the All option:
./nmapAutomator.sh 0.0.0.0 All
The usage is clear: only the ip address and the scan mode are needed and the script will find and analyse open TCP and UDP ports.
- The tool is accurate
- It is really fast
- It has all the basic scans included
- The user can poke around with a simple scan result while the full scan is running
- The tool could have some more functionalities for other ports than http, smb, snmp
