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

Project description

===========
python-nmap
===========

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.

Typical usage looks like::

#!/usr/bin/env python
import nmap # import nmap.py module
nm = nmap.PortScanner() # instantiate nmap.PortScanner object
nm.scan('127.0.0.1', '22-443') # scan host 127.0.0.1, ports from 22 to 443
nm.command_line() # get command line used for the scan : nmap -oX - -p 22-443 127.0.0.1
nm.scaninfo() # get nmap scan informations {'tcp': {'services': '22-443', 'method': 'connect'}}
nm.all_hosts() # get all hosts that were scanned
nm['127.0.0.1'].hostname() # get hostname for host 127.0.0.1
nm['127.0.0.1'].state() # get state of host 127.0.0.1 (up|down|unknown|skipped)
nm['127.0.0.1'].all_protocols() # get all scanned protocols ['tcp', 'udp'] in (ip|tcp|udp|sctp)
nm['127.0.0.1']['tcp'].keys() # get all ports for tcp protocol
nm['127.0.0.1'].all_tcp() # get all ports for tcp protocol (sorted version)
nm['127.0.0.1'].all_udp() # get all ports for udp protocol (sorted version)
nm['127.0.0.1'].all_ip() # get all ports for ip protocol (sorted version)
nm['127.0.0.1'].all_sctp() # get all ports for sctp protocol (sorted version)
nm['127.0.0.1'].has_tcp(22) # is there any information for port 22/tcp on host 127.0.0.1
nm['127.0.0.1']['tcp'][22] # get infos about port 22 in tcp on host 127.0.0.1
nm['127.0.0.1'].tcp(22) # get infos about port 22 in tcp on host 127.0.0.1
nm['127.0.0.1']['tcp'][22]['state'] # get state of port 22/tcp on host 127.0.0.1 (open


# a more usefull example :
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']))


print('----------------------------------------------------')
# If you want to do a pingsweep on network 192.168.1.0/24:
nm.scan(hosts='192.168.1.0/24', arguments='-n -sP -PE -PA21,23,80,3389')
hosts_list = [(x, nm[x]['status']['state']) for x in nm.all_hosts()]
for host, status in hosts_list:
print('{0}:{1}'.format(host, status))


print '----------------------------------------------------'
# Asynchronous usage of PortScannerAsync
nma = nmap.PortScannerAsync()
def callback_result(host, scan_result):
print '------------------'
print host, scan_result
nma.scan(hosts='192.168.1.0/30', arguments='-sP', callback=callback_result)
while nma.still_scanning():
print("Waiting ...")
nma.wait(2) # you can do whatever you want but I choose to wait after the end of the scan
