Xprobe2 is an active operating system fingerprinting tool.
Version: 0.3Xprobe is an alternative to some tools which are heavily dependent upon the usage of the TCP protocol for remote active operating system fingerprinting.
Operating System: Linux
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 rely on fuzzy signature matching, probabilistic guesses, multiple matches simultaneously, and a signature database. Xprobe2 is an active operating system fingerprinting tool witch has a different approach to operating system fingerprinting.
· A C++ compiler. (gcc will do)
· libusi++ (included with the distribution)
· lipcap (use version 0.6.x or later)
· If libpcap is not installed in standard path, use --with-libpcap-libraries=/path/ and --with-libcap-includes=/path options.
