Re: Mobile devices fingerprinting

Hi.

A simple scan of my local network (with -O) detected my android cellphone
and its manufacturer. It didn't gave me specific OS details, though.

Hi,

Since my last mail didn't get any response either cause my idea was too
stupid or cause no one read my mail so I am gonna try once again as I think
this is a good feature Nmap could have.

Is it presently possible by using some strange combination of parameters to
detect the make and OS of a mobile device using Nmap ? I don't think its
possible.

I am thinking of combining passive scanning along with other known methods
to introduce mobile device fingerprinting in Nmap.
Tricky part is mobile devices don't listen to any port but there are other
ways to detect them.

Before doing further research I would like to know your opinion weather it
is worthwhile or an unrequited feature.

Thanks,
Subhankar
