STUN Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 45580


A STUN server is listening on the remote host.


The remote service supports the STUN (Session Traversal Utilities for NAT) protocol as described in RFC 5389. STUN helps client software behind a NAT router discover the external public address and the behavior of the router.

Note that an earlier version of the protocol used a different acronym
- 'Simple Traversal of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) Through Network Address Translators (NATs)' - as specified in RFC 3489.
