File vtam-enum

Script types: portrule
Categories: intrusive, brute
Download: https://svn.nmap.org/nmap/scripts/vtam-enum.nse

User Summary

Many mainframes use VTAM screens to connect to various applications (CICS, IMS, TSO, and many more).

This script attempts to brute force those VTAM application IDs.

This script is based on mainframe_brute by Dominic White (https://github.com/sensepost/mainframe_brute). However, this script doesn't rely on any third party libraries or tools and instead uses the NSE TN3270 library which emulates a TN3270 screen in lua.

Application IDs only allows for 8 byte IDs, that is the only specific rule found for application IDs.

Script Arguments

vtam-enum.path

Folder used to store valid transaction id 'screenshots' Defaults to None and doesn't store anything.

idlist

Path to list of application IDs to test. Defaults to nselib/data/vhosts-default.lst.

vtam-enum.macros

When set to true does not prepend the application ID with 'logon applid()'. Default is false.

vtam-enum.commands

Commands in a semi-colon seperated list needed to access VTAM. Defaults to nothing.

passdb, unpwdb.passlimit, unpwdb.timelimit, unpwdb.userlimit, userdb

See the documentation for the unpwdb library.

creds.[service], creds.global

See the documentation for the creds library.

brute.credfile, brute.delay, brute.emptypass, brute.firstonly, brute.guesses, brute.mode, brute.passonly, brute.retries, brute.start, brute.threads, brute.unique, brute.useraspass

See the documentation for the brute library.

Example Usage

nmap --script vtam-enum -p 23 <targets>

nmap --script vtam-enum --script-args idlist=defaults.txt,
vtam-enum.command="exit;logon applid(logos)",vtam-enum.macros=true
vtam-enum.path="/home/dade/screenshots/" -p 23 -sV <targets>
