Abstract

Many of today's devices are internet-enabled with IPv4 internet addresses, exposing them to internet threats. To determine the true scale of vulnerabilities being introduced, particularly in the IPv4 internet address space, a new methodology of scanning the entire IPv4 internet space is required. To improve scanning speeds we created a framework combining fast connectionless port scanners with a thorough and accurate connection-oriented scanner to verify results. The results are stored to a database. This combined framework provides more robust results than current connectionless scanners, yet still scans the IPv4 internet fast enough to be practically usable for mass scanning.
