Nmap identifies available hosts on a network, the services (applications and versions) these hosts provide, the operating systems (and their versions) they run, the types of packet filters/firewalls in place, and many other attributes.

“We finally tackled our backlog of OS and service detection fingerprint submissions. We’re not talking about dozens or hundreds of them – we processed more than 6,500 fingerprints,” said Gordon Fyodor Lyon, the creator of Nmap.

Nmap 7.95 introduces a substantial update with 336 new signatures, expanding the total to 6,036. Notable additions include support for the latest iOS versions 15 & 16, macOS Ventura & Monterey, Linux 6.1, OpenBSD 7.1, and lwIP 2.2.

Regarding service/version detection, the signature count rose 1.4% to 12,089, including 9 new soft matches. It now detects 1,246 protocols, including new
additions of grpc, mysqlx, essnet, remotemouse, and tuya.

Nmap is available for free download here.
