There are some very important things to consider when planning an attack. You need to take into account whether it’s a physical machine, virtual machine, or just a container. You also need to decide what’s the best analysis tool and if are there any scanning considerations. Taking those parameters into consideration, you can then map the targets to business value, so you can focus on what vulnerability will hurt the business the worst.
- When we start running all of these different…vulnerability scans, it's important to consider…the various targets, and remember that it's extremely rare…that any two targets will be identical.…Now there are the cases where you'll have cloned targets.…Sometimes they're synchronized,…so that they are pretty much the same.…But even in that case, the function is likely…that one is going to be the primary,…and another is a secondary.…So even if they are cloned, there might be…subtle differences.…In most cases however, you'll find that targets…are not going to at all be the same.…
So you've got to consider the different aspects…of the different targets.…So, let's take a look at a few different aspects.…First off, we are using virtual machines.…That is a practice that is becoming more and more popular,…both in on-premises data centers,…as well as cloud-based service providers.…So in many cases you're going to encounter…targets that are not physical machines,…like we used to have in the legacy days.…So, you'll run into two different types of situations.…
