Hey everyone,

Attached is a script I wrote that attempts to identify a host given its SSH
hostkey as an argument. I got the idea from Fyodor's presentation

-- () usage
-- nmap --script=find-ssh-hostkey --script-args
-- () output
-- 22/tcp  open  ssh
-- |_find-ssh-hostkey: Key found.

After (limited) testing it seems to work. I don't have access to many
machines running SSH so I can't test it thoroughly.

The script name can be confusing seems it's very similar to other scripts
that show the host's SSH key so feel free to change it to something more

Thanks for this script, Nick. I think it's too limited to be generally
useful, though--if you're going to grep the output for "Key found"
couldn't you grep for the key fingerprint directly?
