Description Josh Glover 2003-05-13 10:24:16 UTC
Disco is a passive IP discovery and fingerprinting utility designed to sit on
segments distributed throughout a network to discover unique IP's on the
network. In addition to IP discovery disco has the ability to passively
fingerprint TCP SYN packets using techniques detailed in a whitepaper from Lance
Spitzner. The intention is for disco to discover IP's on the network,
fingerprint the packet if necessary, and load into the Gherkin Scan Manager
database for targeted host scans.

Sorry, don't have enough time at the moment to maintain a new ebuild unrelated
to my current projects (mainly BitTorrent and InGen). I might have more time
in December (when college semester is over) if the bug is still around then.
