stuck with concepts...

           i am facing a small conceptual difficulty in the
project(ospttm.pbwiki.com). we need to do a reconnaisance of the
target and prepare logistics for the attack, like mapping the target
network.. etc but when we use nessus and metasploit, where do our
efforts fit the picture?.. when we have correctly mapped the target
network using firewalk,nmap,amap..etc . Ok the whois and dnsquery can
give you target ip's to put in nessus, but what bout others?...

isthere a way to integrat our results with these automated tools?.. or
the traditional method of using firewalk,nmap..etc has fallen down to
current trends like nessus?

As soon as men decide that all means are permitted to fight an
evil, then their good becomes indistinguishable from the evil
that they set out to destroy.
