This lesson familiarizes the student with techniques for passive and active network reconnaissance to include sweeping, scanning, OS finger printing, banner grabbing, war-dialing and war-driving.
This lesson includes a hands-on exercise in the Virginia Cyber Range. If instructors would like to have students complete the exercise, they should have requested an account at email@example.com and had a course created for them. They should upload their student list to the course and prepare the exercise entitled ‘Cyber Basics – Reconnaissance and Network Scanning Lab’ and download the corresponding lab document from the courseware repository.
