I am a student of IITH pursuing B.Tech (2nd yr., CSE).
I got the following ideas:

1. *Detect vulnerabilities and attack*
   nmap can detect applications along with their versions, binded with
   If it also tells about the possible attacks, it will be a more better
   Attacking option can also be embeded, which requires only a script for
each attck.

   *How to implement*

   1. Query CVE database with application name and version, which tells
   almost all the possible vulnerabilities.
   2. List all of them.
   3. Ask for an attack.
   4. Choose script(if already present in nmap-attack database, may
   available on nmap server or local machine) or asks for script file.
   5. Attack, by running script.

   *Script content*

   1. On which port to attack
   2. What packets to be send
   3. Type of packets
   4. If any communication requires, it will also be explained in it.
   5. If an attack requires some information from user, it can ask.

   *Requirements to run script:*
   A script engine.
   Engine can either be NSE (if possible) or a new script engine.

2. *nmap for Mobile platforms*

   In todays life mobiles have a special character. It will be better to
have nmap for mobiles.
   It will give portability to nmap users.

   Users can scan networks during travelling, and even at those places where
laptops are not handy to use. And it will be useful at public places where
obviously an hacker do not want to show results to any one.

   Its better to develop nmap for Android platform, coz of market

Hope you like my ideas.

Thank You.
