This advanced challenge is suited for students who are comfortable working with Ubuntu and Nmap in the terminal. Some background of networking and routing configuration on Linux systems is resourceful. The lab has a time limit, which should be sufficient even if you have to look up a few things in the Hints provided. Unlike guided challenges with specific hints, advanced challenges offer hints that link to documentation or similar resources. This is a good practice working through a task utilizing your knowledge, skills, talents, expertise, researching skills, and related documentation gaining hands-on experience on the tools and the software used. Lab completion will help students develop skills in installing Nmap and Apache2 packages, block ICMP ping requests on both the Linux machines as well as run a variety of port scans using Nmap tool, which is important for the Cyber Defense Analyst work role.
