Vulnerability scanning is a process used to assess systems for known weaknesses. In this course, you'll learn how to configure vulnerability scanner settings and scan targets for vulnerabilities. You'll explore the different types of scanning methods, as well as vulnerability testing tools and common scanning themes. Next, you'll learn how to perform a scan analysis. You'll also examine the Nmap utility, which is designed to discover hosts and services on a computer network. You'll move on to explore Nmap Scripting Engine scripts and the numerous switches included in the Nmap utility that can helpful in penetration testing. Lastly, you'll learn about vulnerability testing tools that can help facilitate automation. This course is one of a collection that helps prepare learners for the CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) certification exam.
