Subject: Nmap and component license information

The Debian project Nmap package maintainer (LaMont Jones, who is
great) asked for a list of licenses under which Nmap and its
components are distributed.  He needs this to create a proper unsubscribe
debian/copyright file.  Since that might be useful to other
people/groups/projects, I'm sending the list to nmap-dev.

The main Nmap code is covered under the Nmap license, which is the GPL
with a few clarifications/exceptions.  A copy of that can be found at
http://insecure.org/nmap/data/COPYING .

The Nmap Security Scanner also uses 3rd party open source libraries
for various functions.  Some or all of these may be necessary or
desirable to distribute Nmap.  All use BSD-style licenses.  If they
are included, their license must be followed.  This document briefly
describes how and when each library is used, and details the license
terms.  The six libraries are the the LibPcap raw packet capture
library, WinPcap Windows Packet Capture Library, Libdnet raw
networking library, LibPCRE perl-compatable regular expression
library, Lua programming language, and the OpenSSL SSL encryption
library.

==LibPcap Raw Packet Capture Library==

LibPcap is used by Nmap on UNIX for raw packet reading during host
discovery, port scanning, and OS detection.  It is available from
http://www.tcpdump.org.  It is bundled with the Nmap Security Scanner
in the libpcap-possiblymodified subdirectory.  The BSD-style license
for version 0.8.3 follows:

==WinPcap Windows Packet Library==

WinPcap is used by Nmap on Windows for raw packet reading during host
discovery, port scanning, and OS detection.  It is available from
http://winpcap.polito.it/.  It is a derivative of LibPcap, so that
license (above) must be followed as well.  The BSD-style license terms
for WinPcap 3.1 follow:

==Libdnet raw networking library==

Libdnet (http://libdnet.sourceforge.net/) is bundled with Nmap and is
required on all platforms for low-level tasks such as sending raw
Ethernet frames.  Version 1.10 is distributed under the following
BSD-style license:

==LibPCRE Perl-compatable Regular Expression Library==

LibPCRE is used as part of Nmap version detection.  It is licensed
under a BSD license.  It is bundled with Nmap in the libpcre
subdirectory.  The license terms for LibPCRE 7.0 follows:

==Lua programming language==

The LUA programming language may optionally be embedded into Nmap as
part of the Nmap Scripting Engine functionality.  LUA will not be
included if the –without-liblua configuration option is given.  If Lua
is included, Nmap also includes some LUA modules which also fall under
the free LUA license.  The LUA license is as follows:

==OpenSSL SSL encryption library==

OpenSSL can optionally be used by Nmap Service Detection to
communicate with SSL-enabled protocols such as https, pop3-s, imaps,
etc.  Its BSD-style license is too long to include here, but available
from http://www.openssl.org/ .  OpenSSL is not bundled with Nmap.
