—In this paper, we address the challenge of speeding
up UDP port scan. We propose a novel scanning technique to
perform significantly faster UDP port scanning when the target
machine is directly connected to port scanner by utilizing
multiple IP addresses. Our experiments show that both Linux
and Windows systems could be scanned faster. In particular the
speed up in tested Linux systems using our scanner are about
19000% in comparison with traditional port scan method.
