By all means lets clear somethings up, this is not for malicious purposes an merely for education. I have background in programming in C# and other scripting languages. Currently, at my capstone for a degree and plan to go back for Cybersecurity. My intentions are all positive.
Recently I just made a pretty cool salt hasher that splits every other character of a salt and combines it with the 512 hashed password for every alternate character and dumps it into a database (*yes an access db, yeah I know, weak*), The salt cant be extracted as well. I just got into socket programming and trying to build a portfolio so that someday someone will see it and provide me a reliable career.
Yes, you’re probably suggesting I go to the python programming section of this site, however, my questions targets the opinions of the security professionals 🤔 But, its not a programming question, its a feature question that will aid my understanding of what the potentials of a port scanner can do.
Aside from being directed using nmap to accomplish tasks,, I could really care less about what it has to offer, but probably the best to see what it does off to give me ideas. But, I want to know from you as that what would benefit you from a port scanner if you made one. What specific implementations would you make if you had no accessibility from nmap?
Please nothing malicious
