Dockerized Network Scanner Alternative to Nmap for OS, Service & Version Discovery

Hi everyone,I’m using Nmap for network scanning in the terminal for a project. I’m looking for alternative tool or API that can be used within Docker containers to perform comprehensive scans on target IPs, gathering information like operating system, services running on open ports, and their versions. I want it to do the functionalities similar to Nmap’s aggressive scan with options like -A, -O, -sV.

Can Greenbone OpenVAS able to do what I need?

Greenbone’s System Discovery Scan configuration is comparable to nmap with these flags enabled. As opposed to a Host Discovery Scan which is comparable to nmap -sn, or a Full and Fast Scan which executes VTs to identify actual vulnerabilities.
