We have decided to embark on the mission of writing a distributed nmap
engine with an internet-public user interface that includes a searchable

We are writing the whole lot in PERL since, well that is what we are better
at and we can write something that will run on *NIX and NT, kudos to Marc
and eEye!

Anyway, we were interested to hear from anyone that has started / attempted
such a project.  I recall that there was some discussion earlier this year
on the matter.

We are aware of the problem that scanning from different networks can yield
different results however we are going to push ahead with it all anyway and
see what happens.

Hoping to have something kinda ready before Black Hat but I suspect we are
going to get really busy with other stuff.  :(

Will keep you all informed as things develop...
