Footprinting is the most critical component of Penetration Testing in that the information naturally reveals itself.  Footprinting empowers accurate, on-point documentation and fact-finding of every target type from IP addresses, access points, systems, rouge websites to ID adverse activities which is the foundation needed for accurate penetration testing.


In this module, you’ll learn all the key focus points, targets, and the key tools that enable successful Footprinting as you conduct penetration testing.  For example, the early segment focuses on documentation, what to target and how to document it.  Then you’ll learn about advanced techniques such as alerting websites that will facilitate info to come to you instead of you searching for it.

The topics covered in this module are as follows:

  • Whiteboard, which shows the interrelationship of all the basic components you’ll utilize
  • And the following labs:
    • AnyWho Lab:
    • nsLookup Lab
    • Path Analyzer Lab
