Have you ever been in a network penetration test where the scope is so huge you end up with dozens of files containing Nmap scan results, each of which, in turn, contains a multitude of hosts? If the answer is yes, you might be interested in this blog post.
Following is the process I recently went through to find a way to triage the results, while enabling concurrent collaboration between team mates. We will see how using traditional “defensive” tools for Offensive security data analysis has advantages over the traditional
grep when parsing and analysing data.
Finally, I’m going to provide the full source code of the setup I ended up with. Hopefully this will give someone else with a similar need some help in the future.
