Jeff (who I’ve known over 20 years) responded and we’ll have a chat… I do hope some forward progress can be made.

Some misc ramblin’ notes/data on IPMI & SSL Certificates. So I used the SSL observatory software (oddly written, but still cool) to scan for certificates on a bit over 300K systems suspected of running IPMI (which in turn were had from HD Moore of Rapid 7 – thanks HD!) and who were on the net. In case anyone else was interested in using the SSL Observatory stuff, it’s pretty simple once [...]

So when I started being interested in scanning for IPMI out in the wild, which runs on UDP 623, I first fired up trusty ol’ nmap… but bless it’s heart, it’s a cautious, robust scanner that is outrun by crippled snails on UDP scanning. So I thought… well, most scans don’t really need a request-response-follow-up… [...]
