Hi, has anyone made any attempts to or is planing to add XML output to nmap?
I remember a while back fyodor added a feature to it that would make that
easier? (remember skript kiddie output?)  If nmap had xml output it would
make it very nice for web-based front ends and communication with other

Yep!  XML output is coming soon.  I had some discussions in mid-june with
Fredrick Paul Eisele <phreed () netarx com>, who sent me some patches for XML
output and we discussed some XML-related issues.  I've been sitting on
them for a while since I want to change the XML output format a bit before
incorporation into nmap.  But in case your impatient :), I've attached the
patches he sent me (not context diffs unfortunately) and some mail we
exchanged.  I'm also attaching his sample output.  If you want to suggest
changes to the sample output or discuss other XML issues, please mail the
Nmap development list: nmap-dev () insecure org .  To subscribe to that list,
send a blank email to nmap-dev-subscribe () insecure org .

it( in a timely fashion). However if someone is planning to add xml output I
would be down to write some nifty javatized front ends with graphical trees
and such...

That would be great!  We'll look forward too it once XML output is
implemented :).  It is in the top 5 of my Nmap TODO list.
