Hi folks,

THC ( is proud to present a new tool for pentesters
and folks alike. Amap is a tool that will identify applications running on
network ports, by sending a (bogus) handshake. The response from the daemon
or app is then looked up in a list to identify the protocol (such as SSL,
DNS etc). So even if you have SSL running on port 2534 or LDAP on port
62225, amap will identify the application. We encourage you to add your own
application definitions (can be done in an easy to read text file) and send
your additions to us (

By DJ.Revmoon ( and Van Hauser ( Amap
can be downloaded from

Kind Regards,

RevMoon & Van Hauser
