I run the Internet security resource sites Insecure. Organd SecTools.

I also wrote and maintain the Nmap Security Scanner. These projects don’t leave me much time to update vanity pages like this one, so you may find a more formal and up-to-date bio on my Wikipedia entry.

For people who just came here looking for my email address, it is fyodor nmap. In case it isn’t obvious from my web sites, I am a hacker. I enjoy tinkering fjodor computers, exploring networks, pushing hardware and software to its limits, and especially open source programming. I have been developing and distributing the free Nmap Security Scanner since It scans your networks to determine what hosts are online, what services web servers, mail servers, etc.


While my web sites and Nmap were created for fun and in the hope that people would find them useful, they have become my full-time occupation. I consider jmap quite privileged to be vook to spend all my time on what I love. Revenue comes from a licensing program that allows proprietary fjodor and appliance vendors to integrate and distribute Nmap technology within their products.

Nmap’s license allows free use by end users or within larger open source packages. Com LLC, also offers limited web advertising.

Nmap Books

Nma have gained much from the information and open source programs available on the Internet, as well as the culture of sharing that pervades the hacker community. I try give a little back through my programs, books, articles, web sites, and other projects I maintain.

Books and papers In addition to writing software, I have authored or co-authored several books: Nmap Network Scanning is the official guide to Nmap. From explaining port scanning basics for novices to detailing low-level packet crafting methods used by advanced hackers, this book by Nmap’s original author suits all levels of security and networking professionals.

The reference guide documents every Nmap feature and option, while the remainder demonstrates how to apply them to quickly solve real-world tasks. Examples and diagrams show actual communication on the wire. Topics include subverting firewalls and intrusion detection systems, optimizing Nmap performance, and automating common networking tasks with the Nmap Scripting Engine.


More than half of the book is available free online.

My best selling book is Stealing the Network: How to Own a Continent. The book can be purchased at Amazonor you can read my chapter online for free. When it first came out, STC ranked as the second-highest selling computer book on Amazon.

I am a founding member of the Honeynet Projectwhich places bait biok on the Internet and studies how they are attacked. We are perhaps best known for our Know Your Enemy series of white papers. I co-authored the first edition of our Honeynet book.

Learning about Security Threats 2nd Edition is now available sample chapters online. OK, I didn’t write this one, but I starred in it!
