PBNJ 2.02 Release

This is the release for LinuxWorld 2006.

The PBNJ 2.0 is completely different from PBNJ 1.0. The most drastic change is that PBNJ 2.0 stores the information from a scan in database. It also has queries that can extract the information that is most useful to the user. When the user wants to extract information, PBNJ extracts the information into a Perl data structure, so there can be multiple output methods such as tab, csv and html. PBNJ 2.0 can also accept input from Nmap in XML format. This allows PBNJ to be more flexbile than version 1.0.... read more

Pbnj 1.0 Initial Release

This is the official release of pbnj. I have spent a while on building this security tool which makes scanning and monitoring computers running various services easier. If you have any suggestion on how I can make this tool more useful, please let me know. I will be happy to include features that I find will make pbnj better.
