[gsoc-2014] Presentation

First of all, congratulations for being accepted once more at gsoc, and to
be honest, it wasn't any surprise ;)

My name is Israel Leiva, I'm a computer science student at University of
Santiago, Chile. I have experience with Perl, C, C++, PHP and Python and
I'm currently learning Lua. My main interests are computer security, free
software and programming competitions. More detailed info in

I've been looking the ideas page for this year and I'm very interested in
the NSE script developer position. Last week I sent my first script to the
dev ML (I made some mistakes in the output comments, though) and I'm trying
to get fresh ideas to practice and create more scripts. Here is where I
have some doubts: how do I make a proposal for this? I understand that this
would involve more than just working on a simple script, so I'm not quite
sure how to start. Looking at the script ideas page, I believe I can work
on some ideas like the http-mirror or refactor the http-spider (it works
quite slow compared to nmap itself, in my experience). Could any of these
ideas be considered for the NSE script developer position?

I've also looked at some community ideas and I'm interested in 'bringing
lua to Ncat, part II' and the nmaprc.lua, particularly because I started to
learn Lua when coding with the NSE and I found it fun and useful :) I've
just read these ideas from the wiki so I'll try to understand these ideas
and in the next days try to make some proposals.

Any feedback or guidelines on any of these ideas are very welcome and
