Synopsis :

HMAP fingerprints the remote HTTP server.

Description :

By sending several valid and invalid HTTP requests, it may be possible
to identify the remote web server type. In some cases, its version can
also be approximated, as well as some options.

An attacker may use this tool to identify the kind of the remote web
server and gain further knowledge about this host.
