When I use nmap for scanning IP, there prints logs:

there are many NSE in there, what't the meaning of it?

The NSE mean Nmap Scripting Engine, you can understand this is nmap software's kernel, this implemented the namp's primary function.

NSE is part of namp and it also allows users to write (or share) scripts to automate a wide variety of networking tasks.

  • I am surprised how they did a scripting engine that does not slow down anything notably. – Croll Apr 5 at 3:50
