I will cover the basics of the nmap scripting engine, the lua programming language and detail how the http-enum script can easily turn nmap into a web application version identifier and/or vulnerability scanner.
It will be presumed the audience is already familiar with nmap, HTTP, and some sort of object oriented programming.
