Nmap is a free, open-source tool for discovering hosts and services on a computer network by sending packets and analyzing the responses. Nmap includes features such as host discovery, service detection, and operating system detection that are useful for probing computer networks.
Nmap can give you more information about your targets, such as reverse DNS names, device types, and MAC addresses.
The process of locating hosts on a network is known as host discovery. List the hosts that, for example, respond to TCP and/or ICMP requests or have a specific port open.
Port scanning is the process of identifying all open ports on a target host.
OS detection is the process of determining the operating system and hardware characteristics of network devices.
Version detection is the process of interrogating network services on remote devices to determine the application name and version number.
You can interact with the target support in a scripted manner by using the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE).
