Scanning, Enumeration, and Vulnerabilities

This course covers basic scanning, enumeration, and vulnerability scanning as part of a penetration test.

Course Content

Course Description

Attackers use scanning and enumeration to determine what live systems are on the network (host discovery) and additional information about those systems, like the operating system in use and software version. With vulnerability scanning, an attacker attempts to locate specific weaknesses in system software. Specifically, the attacker is hoping to find known vulnerabilities (CVE) that they can easily exploit. This course is designed to be predominantly hands-on and covers the theory of scanning, enumeration, and vulnerabilities at a high-level.

I'm a cybersecurity professional who has worked primarily in healthcare and as an adjunct professor of digital forensics. I have been instructing online for several years, primarily in business and health-related areas. I hold both the CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker)and CHFI (Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator) certifications from EC-Council and am a content reviewer/writer for both exams (no, I can’t give you the answer key lol). I began helping other professionals pass the CHFI exam after struggling in my first exam attempt. To date, I have helped tens of thousands of people around the world pass the CEH and CHFI exams.
