Take a look at http://www.tenable.com/products/nessus but you could also look into commerical solutions as well, plenty of really good pen testing companies out there but Nessus does have a vast plugin base and community support.

Actually if you would search your distributions repos, Sourceforge, The-Site-Formerly-Known-As-Freshmeat, Savannah.nongu and Berlioz or your favorite search engine for the phrase "packager generator" you'd find all sorts of tools. So there's absolutely no need for Nessus (that's like to buying a Swiss Army knife because you need the toothpick) or and pointing to "commercial solutions" without adding valid reasons is completely unfounded anyway IMNSHO.

Maybe I'm just used to thinking on an enterprise level as those are usually the environments I work in unSpawn. What are you talking about with "packager generator" I followed your steps and searched savannah and got 0 results. Maybe a typo here? but curious as to what other solutions you have as these are the only I've worked with.

ROTFL, that obviously is a typo as it should read "packet generator"! ;-p

Scapy is also a good tool for such purpose. This tool is written in python, so if you some hands of python scripting that will be great advantage.

Thanks
