Managing port scan results with Dr. Portscan

The Future of Dr. Portscan

Dr. Portscan is under active development; the next version will include a multitenant-capable configuration and reporting tool. This tool will allow administrators who are responsible for part of a network to define the scope of the scan and the boundaries of the report in a web front end. Additionally, reporting will be improved for IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack environments to help identify inconsistent IPv4 and IPv6 firewall rules. Also, the developers are working on an output agent for reporting port scan results to a security management system such as AlienVault OSSIM.
