OWASP NINJA-PingU – High Performance Large Scale Network Scanner

Check For Vulnerabilities with Acunetix

NINJA-PingU (NINJA-PingU Is Not Just A Ping Utility) is a free open-source high performance network scanner tool for large scale analysis. It has been designed with performance as its primary goal and developed as a framework to allow easy plugin integration.

OWASP NINJA-PingU Architecture

Essentially it’s a high performance, large scale network scanner, the likes of which we haven’t seen for some time. There were a few such projects around in 2008-2009 like Angry IP Scanner & Unicornscan.

It comes out of the box with a set of plugins for services analysisembedded devices identification and to spot backdoors.

NINJA PingU takes advantage of raw sockets to reduce the three-way TCP handshake latency and it’s state. Directly sending IP packets also avoids the TCP stack overhead. It also implements non-blocking networking I/O in the plugin’s interface by means of epoll. Each component is multithreaded and they have built-in caches to minimize synchronization points. In addition, the results persistment operations are buffered to reduce disk writes.
