This is more of a ramble than a good idea, and please know that I
haven't looked at nmap source in over 2 years.  However...

I know that hping3 added Tcl support for scripting, and I had wondered
if nmap, ncat and nping all share the same core packet sending
libraries, would it be possible to design nping to be able to run NSE
scripts as well? That is probably well over the scope for this summer,
but I thought it might be worth considering if it would impact design
choices this summer.

The biggest thing I am thinking of is being able to take advantage of
all the NSE libraries at the least.

Again, I haven't looked at code, so NSE scripts might be dependent on
nmap data structures that would make this unfeasible, but I thought it
was at least worth mentioning.

If the saner, more competent folks on the list could weigh in...

Cheers,
  kx

Hi!

First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Luis MartinGarcia, and
I am one of the 6 Nmap GSoC '09 students. I study Computing Engineering
in University Carlos III, Madrid, Spain, and I am also pursuing my
masters degree in Information Security in Open University of Catalonia.

My project for Nmap is the development of Nping, a hping-like tool for
for constructing and sending custom packets. I am open to any suggestion
about the project, so don't hesitate to contact me if you have interesting
ideas.


Accomplishments:

*  I've checked out most or all nmap repository (main branch, nmap-exp, status, etc).
*  I've created a new directory in nmap-exp for this GSoC Project (folder "luis")
*  I've created a TODO list in directory status (file "TODO.luis")
*  I've successfully compiled current svn version of nmap. That was easy since there
  is no difference with the standard process for tar.gz releases.
*  I've downloaded hping2 and started having a look at its man page.
*  I've subscribed to the nmap-svn list (I was already subscribed to the other lists)


Priorities:

* Read as much hping2 documentation as possible
* Discussion with Fyodor and the nmap-dev people about the requirements for Nping.
* Tell Fyodor I don't have access to an OS X box to be used for testing.
