Scalable, accurate, flexible and efficient network probing
Unicornscan is an attempt at a user-land distributed TCP/IP stack. It is
intended to provide a researcher a superior interface for introducing a
stimulus into and measuring a response from a TCP/IP enabled device or
network. Although it currently has hundreds of individual features, a main
set of abilities include: Asynchronous stateless TCP scanning with all
variations of TCP flags, asynchronous stateless TCP banner grabbing,
asynchronous protocol specific UDP scanning (sending enough of a signature
to elicit a response), active and passive remote OS, application and
component identification by analyzing responses, PCAP file logging and
filtering, relational database output, custom module support, customized
THIS CODE BASE is not intented to be secure
honestly, though, lets expand on this a bit, seeing as how that can
be a confusing statement.
the following things are true about this codebase:
1) this is not a product. this is a pre-1.0 version of a GPL tool.
2) there is no formal security review of this code at this time.
3) if you have concerns about this code mis-behaving then you should
The normal configuration of the username/password/host/dbname information is in the "modules.conf" file
(normally inside $PREFIX/share/unicornscan/modules.conf) there is no way currently to specify database
parameters from the command line.

1. The PostgreSQL service has to be up and running. Depending on the exact
version of Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, on the first PostgreSQL
startup, a "service postgresql initdb" is maybe required for initializing.
[root@tux ~]# service postgresql start
Starting postgresql service: [ OK ]
