Nmap for Android

We are planning to use Nmap as a major component for the Android Network Scanner. With last year's Google Summer of Code, I had started writing my own host discovery and port scanning methods. Since Nmap covers almost all functionalities that we want in a Network Scanner, it is a better idea to integrate Nmap into the Network Scanner.

Previously, I was using a cross-compiled binary using the method described on the Nmap website by Vlatko Kosturjak.
Here is another script for cross-compiling Nmap for Android. It downloads the arm toolchain from Sourcery, Nmap source and builds Nmap using the arm compiler. Currently tested on Ubuntu 11.04.

Wait for the next release of the Android Network Scanner this summer!
