The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database is a great place to find specific vulnerabilities for protocols that will aid in the next phases of “Ethical” hacking, and Nmap provides a great foundation for information that is required for the “Ethical” Hack. Without this information there is no target for attack, nearly all of the tools used for penetration testing need an IP address to target and without this, the process quickly becomes very difficult. Nmap has many flags that can be used, including those that allow an attacker to avoid firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS. Building up experience by scanning other devices on your network and understanding how to interpret the data you collect is vitally important. It is possible to create a script that will access Nmap every day and send daily reports and alerts if anything was to change.
