Simple Nmap XML output usage example
From: Fyodor <fyodor () insecure org>

I usually don't forward messages from other lists here, but I think
this is a good demonstration of how easily the Nmap XML output can be
parsed.  I encourage authors of programs which read Nmap output to
consider using the XML output format.  The format is more stable,
extensible, and contains a bit more information than the others.

Cheers,

If you use Nmap's XML output option, you can easily parse the information
with a perl script using the XML::Simple module.  For example, to read the
number of hosts up:

#!/usr/bin/perl

use XML::Simple;

my $file=$ARGV[1];
my $xs=XML::Simple->new();

my $doc = $xs->XMLin($file);

my $up = $doc->{runstats}->{hosts}->{up};

How about traditional unix tools such as grep/egrep, awk, wc?

Oggetto: "Get out of Jail Free" client doc


I am about to do a vulnerability assessment for a larger client. I want to
have this client sign a document which states that I am authorized to
perform this assessment and that I am not responsible for server
crashes or
things along that line. Does anyone know where I can get a template or an
example of such a document? Thanks.
