Find SSH servers (without NMAP)

DOI ci Language grade: Python PyPi Download stats

Platform-independently find SSH servers (or other services with open ports) on an IPv4 subnet in pure Python WITHOUT NMAP. Scan entire IPv4 subnet in less than 1 second using Python standard library asyncio coroutines and a single thread.

The asyncio coroutine method uses ONE thread and is significantly faster than concurrent.futures.ThreadPoolExecutor, even (perhaps especially) with hundreds of threads in the ThreadPool.

Although speed advantages weren't seen in our testing, findssh works with PyPy as well.

pip install findssh

or from this repo:

git clone https://github.com/scivision/findssh

pip install -e findssh

Usage

from command line:

findssh

or

python -m findssh

Command line options

  • -s check the string from the server to attempt to verify the correct service has been found
  • -t timeout per server (seconds) useful for high latency connection
  • -b baseip (check other subnet besides your own)
  • -p network port to scan (default 22)

Benchmark

These tests used 500 ms timeout on WiFi.

Coroutine (single thread, fast, lean, recommended):

%timeit findssh.main()

522 ms ± 1.26 ms per loop (mean ± std. dev. of 7 runs, 1 loop each)

Thread pool (100 thread max, slow, heavy):

%timeit findssh.threadpool.main()

1.39 s ± 213 ms per loop (mean ± std. dev. of 7 runs, 1 loop each)
