Re: nse crypto

Here is a new version that uses the brute library. I did not notice
any speed ups, but using the library seems a good idea anyway, as it
makes this work similarly to other scripts.

Should the library replace an empty password with <empty> when it is
reporting results? I though I should not do that, as the library could
define a standard way for doing such things.

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 tried it. It found the correct password after three guesses in 6
seconds. It seems to do about 1 guess per second on another server.

I think the way to speed it up is to use the brute.lua library. See
Patrik Karlsson's brute scripts for examples of using it.
