Re: Nmap On Android

I've been talking about it since the end of last summer, but haven't had the
time to actually do anything, yet. The previous version I'm aware of
installed a pre-compiled Nmap binary and then ran it. I think a better
alternative is to leverage the Android NDK -- but other than getting the NDK
on my machine, I haven't really looked into the viability of this. I've been
given a 'green light' to do this as my project for one of my classes this
semester, so maybe I'll finally get something done, but it won't be very
robust and I plan to ignore the 'Androids don't have root access and can't
make raw packets' issue.

Something that was suggested to me last year, is that simply porting Nmap to
Android probably isn't a big enough project for GSoC (isn't the target ~1000
hours?). My suggestion would be to think of ways to extend or enhance it, as
well. Hopefully by May I'll be able to provide something for someone to
build on, or at least give an example of one implementation alternative.

There is a fairly poorly done package called "Droidmap" (
https://code.google.com/p/droidmap/downloads/list) that runs nmap 4.01 on
the Android.  It seems to work OK, but among other things, the UI is too big
for the screen on my Droid Incredible.

If you do develop anything, I will be happy to help with testing.

Hi,
I am a student whose learning his way through Nmap. I am interested in
GSoC.
I was wondering if NMap has been developed for Android. I Looked at the
site, found none. Does it exist? If not, is it a viable project for GSoC
or
otherwise. What all do I need to make NMAP app for Android?
Thanks a lot.
Cheers.
