HD,
Metasploit has already been added to my archive of must haves. I'm primarly interested in tools that would in effect combine a nessus like front end to something like core impact/metasploit. Any ideas on something like that? Do I need to write my own?

 You should check out the Metasploit Framework:
- http://metasploit.com/projects/Framework/

When I viewed the online demo of SAINT Exploit in December of 2005, nearly all of their exploit modules had names very similar to the ones found in version 2.5 of the Metasploit Framework. The demo has been updated since
then and a handful of new exploits have been mixed in while others had
their name changed. Oh, and their placement of a Google Adword on
"metasploit" was a nice touch...

All,
    I am in the process of researching a wide variety of penetration
testing tools and vulnerability assessment tools. I've already
researched many of the commercial tools like Coresecurity's Core
Impact
tool and even know a bit about the new tool that saint is about to
come
out with. What about open-source tools?

    Are there any open source tools like Core Impact that allow you to
not only scan a network for vulnerabilities but then allow you to
issue
attacks against those vulnerabilities? I'm interested in both windows
based and *nix based tools. Yes I am aware of nessus, exploit tree,
metaspoloit etc... but none of those really have the "identify then
attack" type of structure... they are either "identify" or "attack".
