Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Fingerprinting webservers, part of Penetration Testing Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Fingerprinting is an important…first step in testing a web application,…as the environment in which it operates…is an important as the application itself,…in terms of potential application risk.…While some servers provide banners,…others have their banners removed or modified.…Being able to determine the type of server…from it's characteristics is important…when reading the banner proves futile.…There are a number of tools available…for finger printing a web server.…One of them is HTTPRecon.…
HTTPRecon can be downloaded from…the computech website, as a zip file,…containing the Windows binaries.…I've downloaded it to my Windows system,…into the HTTPRecon folder.…There are three .ocx files that comes with HTTPRecon.…These may be missing in Windows.…They need to be in the SysWOW64 folder and registered.…We have to be running an administrative…command shell for this.…I'll now run the privileged registration…process for all three.…
Okay, that was successful, as was that, and that.…I can now start the HTTPRecon tool.…
Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore reviews popular pen testing tools, as well as the Bash and Python scripting skills required to be able to acquire, modify, and re-use exploit code.
