Nmap Scripting Engine

by Claudiu Perta for Nmap Security Scanner

Currently, IPv6 can be "broken" in a number of different ways and although some statistics are being reported about IPv6 brokeness (, however, there is still no automatic way of investigating the root cause, which typically requires to manually perform and correlate different measurements. For this GSOC, I would like to extend nmap’s IPv6 support, with particular focus on the “IPv6 brokenness”. I also list some ideas for new scripts that could be discussed with the mentors.
