Building on exercises from our information gathering and threat modeling, we can now begin to actively query our victims for vulnerabilities that may lead to a compromise. We have narrowed down our attack surface considerably since we first began the penetration test with everything potentially in scope.


The objective of this lab is to help students in conducting network scanning, analyzing the network vulnerabilities, and maintaining a secure network. You need to perform a network scan to:
Learn to Analyze Network Vulnerabilities
  • Check live systems and open ports
  • Perform banner grabbing and OS fingerprinting
  • Identify network vulnerabilities
  • Draw network diagrams of vulnerable hosts


Vulnerability scanning determines the possibility of network security attacks. It evaluates the organization's systems and network for vulnerabilities such as missing patches, unnecessary services, weak authentication, and weak encryption. Vulnerability scanning is a critical component of any penetration testing assignment. You need to conduct penetration testing and list the threats and vulnerabilities found in an organization'¬ôs network and perform port scanning, network scanning, and vulnerability scanning to identify IP/hostname, live hosts, and vulnerabilities.
