Meet MacNikto

MacNikto iconSo I wanted to learn a bit about Apple's development tools in my copious free time. I figured an application interface to a shell script might be easy enough, and ideally useful to boot -- the result is MacNikto.

MacNikto is an Universal Binary, Open Source (GPL) AppleScript GUI shell script wrapper built in Xcode and Interface Builder. It provides easy access to a subset of the features available in the award-winning Perl-based Nikto web security scanner, installed along with the MacNikto application.

Use it to analyze and lock down your web servers. Works on Panther and Tiger OSen. More info and downloads at the MacNikto page.
