Active reconnaissance requires a penetration tester to engage and interact with the targeted system to gather information and identify vulnerabilities. To do this, penetration testers can use several different methods including automated scanning and manual testing techniques. In this course, you'll learn how to use active reconnaissance techniques such as enumeration and web site reconnaissance, which are commonly used to gather intelligence about hosts, services, and web sites. You'll also learn about packet crafting, tokens, wardriving, network traffic, active fingerprinting, and defense detection and avoidance techniques. This course is one of a collection that helps prepare learners for the CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) certification exam.
