This course covers basic scanning, enumeration, and vulnerability scanning as part of a penetration test.
Module 1: Introduction
Module 2: Check For Live Systems and Ports
Module 3: Scanning
Module 4: Fingerprinting and Banner Grabbing
Module 6: Vulnerabilities
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.
