Nmap Scripting Engine

The Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) is one of Nmap's most powerful and flexible features. It allows users to write (and share) simple scripts to automate a wide variety of networking tasks. Those scripts are then executed in parallel with the speed and efficiency you expect from Nmap. Users can rely on the growing and diverse set of scripts distributed with Nmap, or write their own to meet custom needs.

Nmap is really my favourite tool for scanning and with this feature added to nmap, it really does make my life easier when doing a lot of scanning. You can check the list of scripts that are currently available in nmap here.

The script can be run with the following command:
nmap -A -T4 --script default -vv

I'm running all scripts under the default category. You can also specify individual script using --script <script name> command.

The script output is shown below the port scan result. More on nmap scripting engine usage and example can be found here.
