CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:

Repeatedly probe open and/or closed ports on a host to obtain a series of round- trip time values for each port. These values are used to group collections of ports which are statistically different from other groups. Ports being in different groups (or 'families') may be due to network mechanisms such as port forwarding to machines behind a NAT. In order to group these ports into different families, some statistical values must be computed. Among these values are the mean and standard deviation of the round-trip times for each port. Once all of the times have been recorded and these values have been computed, the Student's t-test is used to test the statistical significance of the differences between each port's data. Ports which have round-trip times that are statistically the same are grouped together in the same family. This script is based on Doug Hoyte's Qscan documentation and patches for Nmap. SYNTAX: delay: Average delay between packet sends. This is a number followed by 'ms' for milliseconds or 's' for seconds. ('m' and 'h' are also supported but are too long for timeouts.) The actual delay will randomly vary between 50% and 150% of the time specified. Default:'200ms'. numtrips: Number of round-trip times to try to get. confidence: Confidence level:'0.75', '0.9', '0.95', '0.975', '0.99', '0.995', or '0.9995'. numclosed: Maximum number of closed ports to probe (default 1). A negative number disables the limit. numopen: Maximum number of open ports to probe (default 8). A negative number disables the limit.

Mageni's Platform is packed with all the features you need to scan, assess and manage vulnerabilities like this - it is free, open source, lightning fast, reliable and scalable.


Frequently Asked Questions

No, you can scan concurrently as many assets as you want. Please note that you must be aware of the hardware requeriments of the platform to ensure a good performance.

No, you can add as many assest as you want. It doesn't matters if you have millions of assets, we won't charge you for that.

No. The software is completely free. We have no intention to charge you to use the software, in fact - it completely goes against our beliefs and business model.

A vulnerability is defined in the ISO 27002 standard as “A weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats” (International Organization for Standardization, 2005)

We generate revenue by providing support and other services for customers that require a subscription so they get guaranteed support and enterprise services. To use Mageni's Platform is completely free, with no limits at all.

No, we don't store the information of your vulnerabilities in our servers.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
