Lisa Bock describes the scanning phase of ethical hacking as an intermediate course intended for network administrators, students, or teachers, and why it is important in an organization. Participants should have an understanding of security concepts, networking terms, devices, the OSI model, IP addressing, cryptographic techniques, and have an interest in the subject.
- [Voiceover] This course is an intermediate course intended for IT security professionals, network administrators, students, teachers, or anyone with an interest in learning more about the scanning phase of ethical hacking and why it is important for an organization, as part of an overall security framework. Participants should have a basic understanding of security concepts, along with networking terms and concepts, including hardware devices, such as switches, routers, and firewalls.
In addition, you should understand the OSI model, IP addressing, subnets, cryptographic techniques, decimal, octal, binary number representation, ports and sockets, and have an interest in the subject. To better prepare and understand the tools and techniques, participants should complete Introduction to Kali Linux with Malcolm Shore.
This course investigates the scanning tools and techniques used to obtain information from a target system, including specially crafted packets, TCP flags, UDP scans, and ping sweeps. Lisa Bock discusses how hackers can identify live systems via protocols, blueprint a network, and perform a vulnerability scan to find weaknesses. She also introduces some of the tools and techniques that hackers use to counter detection via evasion, concealment, and spoofing. In addition, learn how to reduce the threat of tunneling, a method hackers use to circumvent network security.
Note: Our Ethical Hacking series maps to the 18 parts of the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) exam (312_50). This course maps to the 03 Scanning Networks domain.
