Re: nse crypto

I got the script written using openssl. In the end the crypto was
surprisingly manageable, compared to dealing with IPv6 addresses. :-)

I have attached the script to this email. I am running an instance of
nping echo server with password 12345 at Feel free to
test the script against it by commanding

nmap -p 9929 --script=nping-brute

Trying out passwords is somewhat slow, so testing with really easy
ones may be a good idea. Add -d -d to the command line to see

I got the impression that openssl libraries is all nping is using
anyway. So basically this should be doable. I am giving it a try, but
lets not hold our breath. :-)

Can we use this to write an nping-brute.nse script that would audit an
nping server for weak passwords?

I don't know if our current OpenSSL integration is enough.  But if you
do write a quality nping-brute script, we'd probably include it in
Nmap.  We want the Nmap tools to interoperate, and I suppose brute
force authentication cracking is a form of interoperability :).
