This module will introduce you to nmap, an open source and incredibly robust network-mapping tool. Nmap was designed to rapidly scan large networks to determine what hosts, services, operating systems, firewalls, and other characteristics are running on a network.
In this module, you will be introduced to the idea of enumerating useful information through simple banner grabbing techniques. Banner Grabbing is a technique used by attackers to extract information about a host. If successful, it can identify the operating system, web server and other applications running on the target host.
