Please excuse me if I've grasped the wrong end of the stick, but RNA is a
passive OS fingerprinting tool which feeds into Lightning Console now called
Management Console.

Whilst ossim and threatman appear to be highly valuable tools, to my
knowledge they do not perform Passive OS Fingerprinting as required in the
original post.  I tried to identify every known tool that performed passive
OS fingerprinting last year, the results are here
http://www.securitywizardry.com/osfp.htm if I'm missing any please please
let me know so that I can update the page

take care
