Bug#222141: ITP: doscan -- Denial Of Service Capable Auditing of Networks

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : doscan
  Version         : x.y.z

  Description     : Denial Of Service Capable Auditing of Networks

doscan is a tool to discover TCP services ony our network. It is
designed for scanning a single ports on a large network.  (There are
better tools for scanning many ports on a small set of hosts, for
example nmap.)

doscan uses a random scatter technology to distribute the load across
the network.  Within a given prefix, hosts are not scanned sequentially,
but in a random‐looking, but reproducible order. As a result, doscan
will not stress‐test the network edge (just the next hop).
