dScanner is a distributed network security scanner. The driving
force behind dScanner is Nessus, the network security scanner located
at http://www.nessus.org. dScanner
ties Nessus into a distributed
system producing a distributed network security scanner.
dScanner was born from a need to analyze the network security posture
of a very large network in a timely manner. The traditional approach of
a single scanner would produce results in days. dScanner is projected
to deliver results in minutes. Since Nessus is a best of
breed contender in its field, it was by obvious choice well suited to
mutate into a distributed system.
