Nmap Web Scanning Infrastructure

by João Correa for Nmap Security Scanner

Today many services have web front-end interfaces. Web applications such as phpmyadmin, git-web, webmails provides many services over HTTP, making it accessible through web browsers. These applications might also be vulnerable to attacks, making web application scanning a very important task. The goal of this project is to develop a infrastructure that allows efficient web applications scanning through Nmap. The infrastructure consists in a group of NSE scripts and modules.
