RE: [NSE] SSL Fingerprint Matching

The latest Debian SSL blacklist file at

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/natty/+source/openssl-blacklist

appears to be 31.4MB at the moment using tar.gz (uncompressed, that takes up
72MB). Even if we keep it compressed, this is more than double the size of
Nmap's current Apple installer, and increases the Windows setup/source code
downloads by around 150%! If we distribute it uncompressed due to a lack of
compression libraries, you're looking at some major increases in bandwidth
(e.g. 91MB vs 19MB on Windows).

Nice work. Why are we worried about the fingerprint file size? Nmap 
all ready ships with operating system detection and software version

become?

Depends on how much info we want to include with each fingerprint. Right
now, I've trimmed it down to the minimum of just saying where it came from
originally, removing all the model/manufacturer/version info.

The other thing that could make the file size balloon is including the
Debian SSL blacklist. I believe those are in the tens of megabytes.
