Nikto allows output to be saved in a variety of formats, including
text, CSV, HTML, XML, NBE and exporting to metasploit. When using
-output, an output format may be specified with
-Format is specified, Nikto will try
to guess the format from the file extension. If Nikto cannot guess the
file format then output will only be sent to stdout.
The DTD for the Nikto XML format can be found in the 'docs' directory (nikto.dtd).
HTML reports are generated from template files located in the
templates directory. Variables are defined as
#variable-name, and are replaced when the report is
generated. The files
htm_end.tmpl are included at the beginning and end
of the report (respectively). The
also appears at the beginning of the report. The
htm_host_head appears once for every host, and the
htm_host_im.tmpl appear once for each item found on
a host and each "informational message" per host (respectively).
All valid variables are used in these templates. Future versions of this documentation will include a list of variables and their meaning.
The copyright statements must not be removed from the
htm_end.tmpl without placing them in another of the
templates. It is a violation of the Nikto licence to remove these
