Hello Larch, thank you for writing to introduce yourself. You have
probably seen these already, but just in case here are some links:

I do not know if I understand correctly for these two programs.
The first one is to use the /Lua /catch up the most recently & popular
vulnerabilities, and add the exploit script to the script archive. The
second one is some kind like the current /Nessus/, build up a web server
and clients could visit the server through HTTP/HTTPS to do some
scanning or checking using the server's computing resources.

I think that you understand the projects. To get some background in NSE
you should read http://nmap.org/book/nse.html. Look over the list of
available scripts and libraries at http://nmap.org/nsedoc/. In your
proposal you should demonstrate that you have a good knowledge of
vulnerabilities and exploitation.

For the hosted scanner, you should look at http://nmap.org/rainmap/. You
can even download the source code; I think it will be quite
understandable for someone with web application experience (especially
