Cancerbero (the watchdog of the ports) is a portscan engine based in nmap. It will scan the hosts of a defined net once in every configured interval and it will store the results in a mysql database. It comes with a Web interface to access the scan info.

Here are some key features of "Cancerbero":

· Graphical configuration.
· Multiple sensors scanning can be deployed.
· There is no limit in the number of ranges to scan.
· Discover the alive (not firewalled) hosts.
· Scans 1-65535 TCP ports of each host.
· Attempts to discover the REAL application and version behind each port.
· Attempts to discover the OS of each host.
· Store all the information in a MySQL database.
· Rescan each host at a defined interval.
· White-Lists with hosts or ranges that you don't like to scan can be defined.
· The information can be access through a graphical interface∞ (web based)
· You decide how many scans should be archived.
· Stats of all the data are provided.
