Lab time: It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab.

Exam Objectives

The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:

  • SY0-501 1.2: Compare and contrast types of attacks
  • SY0-501 3.2: Given a scenario, implement secure network architecture concepts

Exercise 1 - Denial of Service

There are any number of ways to prevent a server from responding to clients. We could have used Ettercap to simply discard any packets from client or server for instance. Flood type attacks really depend on overwhelming the victim system with superior bandwidth, which itself depends on compromising thousands or even millions of "zombie" PCs in a "botnet". This exercise just illustrates how simple it is to craft the sort of malformed packets that can be used to try to flood a server.

Exercise 2- Anti-Phishing Toolbar

In this exercise, you will learn the following in this course:

  • Anti-Phishing Toolbar: Netcraft
