Xprobe (I & II) is an Active OS fingerprinting tools based on Ofir Arkin's
ICMP Usage In Scanning Research project.
Xprobe is an alternative to some tools which are heavily dependent upon
the usage of the TCP protocol for remote active operating system
Xprobe I combines various remote active operating system fingerprinting
methods using the ICMP protocol, which were discovered during the
"ICMP Usage in Scanning" research project, into a simple, fast,
efficient and a powerful way to detect an underlying operating system
a targeted host is using.
Xprobe2 is an active operating system fingerprinting tool with a different
approach to operating system fingerprinting. Xprobe2 rely on fuzzy signature
matching, probabilistic guesses, multiple matches simultaneously, and
a signature database.
I added this to extras a few weeks ago (Bug #165363)
OK, seems I havn't updated my local cvs for a while. Argh. That's the second
package today. Thanks for the information.
