Week 6 (2nds Sems) – Borrowing WhoWas

As the first step, we were able to fork the existing WhoWas code from a git repository and get the code up and running it its original form. Currently, the WhoWas  scanner accepts a list a IP ranges, attempts to initiate connection on port 80 (HTTP), 43 (HTTPS),  or 21 (SSH). If the connection is successful it stores the relevant information( header, ip ,  etc) in a SQL database. This week we hope to look through the existing code and identify where we can make changes for our specific experiment.
