Sample text

In a matter of minutes, an administrator can generate a scan request for a range of IP addresses, an entire subnet, or even re-scan pre-identified systems. The options for identifying services and Operating System (OS) type come in handy when you are trying to identify existing desktops or servers in the infrastructure. Let’s assume you have been tasked with identifying any outdated OS in your network. Step one is to use Nmap to identify up systems. This will help us narrow down the number of IP addresses that we have to scan more in-depth.

If Network A sends a datagram to Network B, with a spoofed source IP host address on Network C, Network C will see traffic going to it that originates from Network B, perhaps without any indication that Network A is involved at all. This type of spoofing is common in Smurf and Fraggle attacks. , an IP address in the network itself). It is also common practice for network administrators to deny inbound packets with source IP addresses matching those of their internal networks. com Introducing Network Scanning • Chapter 1 Internet Control Message Protocol The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) manages errors and provides informational reporting for IP networks.

Some examples are a SYN/ ACK scan, a FIN scan, an ACK scan, a NULL scan, and a XMAS (Christmas Tree) scan. Each of these scan types are covered in detail later in the book. com Introducing Network Scanning • Chapter 1 Port scanning solicits a variety of responses by setting different TCP flags or sending UDP packets with various parameters. You may scan all of them or a subset, such as the most commonly used ports. For example, it is routine to scan the well-known ports below 1024 that are associated with common services such as FTP, SSH, Telnet, SMTP, DNS, and HTTP.
