Searching for NSE Scripts Built-in to Nmap


Using the following line of code will help you search through the available NSE scripts built into the nmap tool.

locate -r nse$|grep <term>

For example, we could search through LDAP related scripts with:

locate -r nse$|grep ldap

You can then use one of the scripts using -- script <scriptname>

For example, if we wanted to run the script /usr/share/nmap/scripts/ldap-search.nse, we would use the following command.

nmap -p 389 --script ldap-search -Pn 10.10.10.107

Note: -Pn just skips the host discovery portion of the process. I did this because I know the box is already alive with that port at that address.
