About

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 development version

svn checkout http://python-nmap.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ python-nmap-read-only

Installation

From the shell, uncompress python-nmap-0.2.6.tar.gz and then run make :

tar xvzf python-nmap-0.2.6.tar.gz
cd python-nmap-0.2.6
python setup.py install

Now you may invoke nmap from python

>>> import nmap

Usage

From python :
>>> 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']))
