Book Summary: Discover network vulnerabilities and threats to design effective network security strategies Key FeaturesPlunge into scanning techniques using the most popular toolsEffective vulnerability assessment techniques to safeguard network infrastructureExplore the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) and the features used for port and vulnerability scanningBook Description Network scanning is a discipline of network security that identifies active hosts on networks and determining whether there are any vulnerabilities that could be exploited. Nessus and Nmap are among the top tools that enable you to scan your network for vulnerabilities and open ports, which can be used as back doors into a network. Network Scanning Cookbook contains recipes for configuring these tools in your infrastructure that get you started with scanning ports, services, and devices in your network. As you progress through the chapters, you will learn how to carry out various key scanning tasks, such as firewall detection, OS detection, and access management, and will look at problems related to vulnerability scanning and exploitation in the network. The book also contains recipes for assessing remote services and the security risks that they bring to a network infrastructure. By the end of the book, you will be familiar with industry-grade tools for network scanning, and techniques for vulnerability scanning and network protection. What you will learnInstall and configure Nmap and Nessus in your network infrastructurePerform host discovery to identify network devicesExplore best practices for vulnerability scanning and risk assessmentUnderstand network enumeration with Nessus and NmapCarry out configuration audit using Nessus for various platformsWrite custom Nessus and Nmap scripts on your ownWho this book is for If you’re a network engineer or information security professional wanting to protect your networks and perform advanced scanning and remediation for your network infrastructure, this book is for you.
Book Summary: Nmap, or Network Mapper, is a free, open source tool that is available under the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation. It is most often used by network administrators and IT security professionals to scan corporate networks, looking for live hosts, specific services, or specific operating systems. Part of the beauty of Nmap is its ability to create IP packets from scratch and send them out utilizing unique methodologies to perform the above-mentioned types of scans and more. This book provides comprehensive coverage of all Nmap features, including detailed, real-world case studies. • Understand Network Scanning Master networking and protocol fundamentals, network scanning techniques, common network scanning tools, along with network scanning and policies. • Get Inside Nmap Use Nmap in the enterprise, secure Nmap, optimize Nmap, and master advanced Nmap scanning techniques. • Install, Configure, and Optimize Nmap Deploy Nmap on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and install from source. • Take Control of Nmap with the Zenmap GUI Run Zenmap, manage Zenmap scans, build commands with the Zenmap command wizard, manage Zenmap profiles, and manage Zenmap results. • Run Nmap in the Enterprise Start Nmap scanning, discover hosts, port scan, detecting operating systems, and detect service and application versions • Raise those Fingerprints Understand the mechanics of Nmap OS fingerprinting, Nmap OS fingerprint scan as an administrative tool, and detect and evade the OS fingerprint scan. • “Tool around with Nmap Learn about Nmap add-on and helper tools: NDiff--Nmap diff, RNmap--Remote Nmap, Bilbo, Nmap-parser. • Analyze Real-World Nmap Scans Follow along with the authors to analyze real-world Nmap scans. • Master Advanced Nmap Scanning Techniques Torque Nmap for TCP scan flags customization, packet fragmentation, IP and MAC address spoofing, adding decoy scan source IP addresses, add random data to sent packets, manipulate time-to-live fields, and send packets with bogus TCP or UDP checksums.

Book Summary: Nmap is a well known security tool used by penetration testers and system administrators. The Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) has added the possibility to perform additional tasks using the collected host information. Tasks like advanced fingerprinting and service discovery, information gathering, and detection of security vulnerabilities. "Nmap 6: Network exploration and security auditing cookbook" will help you master Nmap and its scripting engine. You will learn how to use this tool to do a wide variety of practical tasks for pentesting and network monitoring. Finally, after harvesting the power of NSE, you will also learn how to write your own NSE scripts. "Nmap 6: Network exploration and security auditing cookbook" is a book full of practical knowledge for every security consultant, administrator or enthusiast looking to master Nmap. The book overviews the most important port scanning and host discovery techniques supported by Nmap. You will learn how to detect mis-configurations in web, mail and database servers and also how to implement your own monitoring system. The book also covers tasks for reporting, scanning numerous hosts, vulnerability detection and exploitation, and its strongest aspect; information gathering.
Book Summary: Get started with NMAP, OpenVAS, and Metasploit in this short book and understand how NMAP, OpenVAS, and Metasploit can be integrated with each other for greater flexibility and efficiency. You will begin by working with NMAP and ZENMAP and learning the basic scanning and enumeration process. After getting to know the differences between TCP and UDP scans, you will learn to fine tune your scans and efficiently use NMAP scripts. This will be followed by an introduction to OpenVAS vulnerability management system. You will then learn to configure OpenVAS and scan for and report vulnerabilities. The next chapter takes you on a detailed tour of Metasploit and its basic commands and configuration. You will then invoke NMAP and OpenVAS scans from Metasploit. Lastly, you will take a look at scanning services with Metasploit and get to know more about Meterpreter, an advanced, dynamically extensible payload that is extended over the network at runtime. The final part of the book concludes by pentesting a system in a real-world scenario, where you will apply the skills you have learnt. What You Will Learn Carry out basic scanning with NMAPInvoke NMAP from Python Use vulnerability scanning and reporting with OpenVAS Master common commands in Metasploit Who This Book Is For Readers new to penetration testing who would like to get a quick start on it.
