Name        : zmap
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 1.2.1
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : https://zmap.io
Summary     : Network scanner for Internet-wide network studies
Description :
ZMap is an open-source network scanner that enables researchers to easily
perform Internet-wide network studies. With a single machine and a well
provisioned network uplink, ZMap is capable of performing a complete scan of
the IPv4 address space in under 45 minutes, approaching the theoretical limit
of gigabit Ethernet.

ZMap can be used to study protocol adoption over time, monitor service
availability, and help us better understand large systems distributed across
the Internet.

========== WARNING ==========
While ZMap is a powerful tool for researchers, please keep in mind that by
running ZMap, you are potentially scanning the ENTIRE IPv4 address space and
some users may not appreciate your scanning. We encourage ZMap users to
respect requests to stop scanning and to exclude these networks from ongoing
