This is a python class to use nmap and access scan results from python3

Project description

PyPI latest PyPI Version PyPI License

python-nmap is a python library which helps in using nmap port scanner. It allows to easilly manipulate nmap scan results and will be a perfect tool for systems administrators who want to automatize scanning task and reports. It also supports nmap script outputs.

It can even be used asynchronously. Results are returned one host at a time to a callback function defined by the user.

Download latest

python-nmap-0.4.1.tar.gz - 2015-08-21 md5sum is b466e4b2ef30a0b9c0cb80aac215fb79

Warning : this version is intended to work with Python 3.x. For Python 2.x, please use python-nmap-0.1.4.tar.gz

Download development version

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/xael/python-nmap

Installation

From the shell, uncompress python-nmap-0.4.1.tar.gz and then run make :

$ tar xvzf python-nmap-0.4.1.tar.gz
$ cd python-nmap-0.4.1
$ python setup.py install

or using Pip

$ pip install python-nmap

Now you may invoke nmap from python

$ python

>> import nmap

Usage

From python/ipython:

>>> import nmap
>>> nm = nmap.PortScanner()
>>> nm.scan('127.0.0.1', '22-443')
>>> nm.command_line()
'nmap -oX - -p 22-443 -sV 127.0.0.1'
>>> nm.scaninfo()
{'tcp': {'services': '22-443', 'method': 'connect'}}
>>> nm.all_hosts()
['127.0.0.1']
>>> nm['127.0.0.1'].hostname()
'localhost'
>>> nm['127.0.0.1'].state()
'up'
>>> nm['127.0.0.1'].all_protocols()
['tcp']
>>> nm['127.0.0.1']['tcp'].keys()
[80, 25, 443, 22, 111]
>>> nm['127.0.0.1'].has_tcp(22)
True
>>> nm['127.0.0.1'].has_tcp(23)
False
>>> nm['127.0.0.1']['tcp'][22]
{'state': 'open', 'reason': 'syn-ack', 'name': 'ssh'}
>>> nm['127.0.0.1'].tcp(22)
{'state': 'open', 'reason': 'syn-ack', 'name': 'ssh'}
>>> nm['127.0.0.1']['tcp'][22]['state']
'open'

>>> for host in nm.all_hosts():
>>>     print('----------------------------------------------------')
>>>     print('Host : %s (%s)' % (host, nm[host].hostname()))
>>>     print('State : %s' % nm[host].state())
>>>     for proto in nm[host].all_protocols():
>>>         print('----------')
>>>         print('Protocol : %s' % proto)
>>>
>>>         lport = nm[host][proto].keys()
>>>         lport.sort()
>>>         for port in lport:
>>>             print ('port : %s\tstate : %s' % (port, nm[host][proto][port]['state']))
----------------------------------------------------
Host : 127.0.0.1 (localhost)
State : up
----------
Protocol : tcp
port : 22   state : open
port : 25   state : open
port : 80   state : open
port : 111  state : open
port : 443  state : open

To export to a file

>>> print(nm.csv())

>>> nm = nmap.PortScannerYield() >>> for progressive_result in nm.scan('127.0.0.1/24', '22-25'): >>> print(progressive_result)
