Re: Reporting output from NMAP
From: Chris Merkel <cmerkel () gmail com>

SecurityCenter can't import nmap scans at all. (I don't remember if previous
windows fat-clients could either, I know the 4.x branch won't.)

If all you want are hosts / ports, SC can do that just as well as nmap. If
you're looking for all the additional service fingerprinting, OS detection,
advanced packet options, etc, then YMMV - some things are analogous and
others are not.

Here's another question. Just found out we purchased Nessus security
center. I know it can perform reporting, anyone know if I can import nmap
results to create a report without having to kick off a scan in Nessus?

Note that if you want output from scripts, XML is not just a nice way to
go, it's the _only_ way to go.  And the only scripting language I've
found with a usable module for parsing that is Ruby, nmap-parse gem, and
it's a pig if you have (say) 10,000 IPs in your report.  I'm told
nmap-parse's biggest problem is rexml, as it creates a new instance of
the whole scan output for each check you want to do against it.

Not that I've ever had to scan a /16 or anything.

I've not tried Dradis myself.

What do you want it to look like? What are your requirements?

The XML output is pretty easy on the eyes, and you could adjust that
quite a
bit simply by editing the style sheet.

All,

Does anyone know of a software package that will take the output of a
NMAP
scan and create a report?
