During the early portion of the scanning phase of pen testing, locating active hosts and identifying the services on open ports is critical in order to determine exposed systems.


The video was recorded at the May ISSA Kentuckiana monthly workshop in Louisville and covers basic host discovery scanning. Port scanning and service discovery are covered as well as reporting results. Some of the tools used are nmap, xprobe2, hping3, tcpdump and amap.


The speaker is Jeremy Druin (@webpwnized) and was recorded by Adrian Crenshaw (@irongeek_adc).
