NDiff 0.02 is available.

NDiff compares two nmap scans and outputs the differences.  It
allows monitoring of your network(s) for interesting changes in
port states and visible hosts.

NDiff should be useful to network administrators, security
analysts, and other interested parties who need to monitor 
large networks in an organized fashion.

NDiff may be retrieved from:


I wrote nmap-web-CLI (a command line interface to nmap-web)
for the express purpose of doing periodic diffs to see if any 
port configurations have changed.  My stuff was super-duper simple, 
but looks like James has done a much more extensive job than I did. 

From personal experiece, this type of tool to automatically 
baseline/check/audit your network(s) is a REALLY SMART thing to do;
basically Tripwire" type functionality for nmap!   ;-)

Kudo's to James for writing this and making it available,
