nikTo Lab



For this next Web Applications module lab, we utilize nikTo for our web application penetration test.

This lab covers the basics of nikTo, a utility for scanning web servers at the host level.  With this tool you must have the current version, so you’ll also learn how to navigate for query version, downloading and installing the current version.

NikTo pulls general information but it also lists all the vulnerabilities it finds, and the path order of those vulnerabilities within that host.

NikTo is a small powerhouse of a utility that provides a wealth of information essential for Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking.
