Here are some key features of "Nikto":

? Main scan database in CSV format for easy updates

? Determines "OK" vs "NOT FOUND" responses for each server, if possible

? Determines CGI directories for each server, if possible

? Switch HTTP versions as needed so that the server understands requests properly

? SSL Support (Unix with OpenSSL or maybe Windows with ActiveState's Perl/NetSSL)

? Output to file in plain text, HTML or CSV

? Generic and "server type" specific checks

? Plugin support (standard PERL)

? Checks for outdated server software

? Proxy support (with authentication)

? Host authentication (Basic)

? Watches for "bogus" OK responses

? Attempts to perform educated guesses for Authentication realms

? Captures/prints any Cookies received

? Mutate mode to "go fishing" on web servers for odd items

? Builds Mutate checks based on robots.txt entries (if present)

? Scan multiple ports on a target to find web servers (can integrate nmap for speed, if available)

? Multiple IDS evasion techniques

? Users can add a custom scan database

? Supports automatic code/check updates (with web access)

? Multiple host/port scanning (scan list files)

? Username guessing plugin via the cgiwrap program and Apache ~user methods
