UMIT is the a network scanning frontend and was started with the sponsoring of Google's Summer of Code.
The project goal is to develop a network scanning suite that is really useful for advanced users and easy to be used by newbies. With UMIT, a network admin could create scan profiles for faster and easier network scanning or even compare scan results to easily see any changes. A regular user will also be able to construct powerful scans with UMIT command creator wizards.
New features like an NSE Facilitator, Network Inventory, Scan Scheduler, a web interface, bluetooth scanner, packet manipulator and a network mapper are being developed by summer of code students this year, and soon are going to be integrated to the main branch.
