I've just released a new version of GeoIPgen

Description: GeoIPgen is a country-to-IPs generator. It's a geographic IP generator for IPv4
networks that uses the MaxMind GeoLite Country database. Geoipgen is the first published use of a
geographic ip database in reverse to translate from country-to-IPs instead of the usual use of
IP-to-country. Features: Random or sorted order, unique or repeating IPs, skips broadcast addresses,

Neat project, and a research topic I've been interested in for several
years. However, it's not the first time that the MaxMind GeoLite
database has been used to generate lists of IP blocks for a given
country (country2ip, rather than ip2country).

October 2007:

one, many or all countries.

Changes: Much faster than version 0.3, for example generating all IPs for Papa New Guinea took a
couple of minutes with version 0.3. Now it takes a few seconds.

P.S. Please tell me about your projects or nationwide scanning efforts that use geoipgen. Eg. the
Australian Web Enumeration Project http://www.auenumerate.net
