Vulnerabilities can be defined as a flaw or weakness that can be exploited. One method to identify vulnerabilities is to use a scanner to assess computers, networks, and applications for known weaknesses. By using a scanner, attackers can learn how to best exploit a target system. In this course, you will learn how port scanning works and recognize common ports with known protocols. Discover how to perform network discovery using Nmap, as well as how to perform vulnerability scanning using Nessus. Discover how to exploit a target system using Nessus and Metasploit, and explore how to take over a remote system. Lastly, you'll also explore vulnerability and system scanning countermeasures, and explore countermeasure techniques used to protect against system exploitation. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).

    perform vulnerability scanning using Nessus
  • explore details of reports produced in Nessus
    provide an overview of vulnerability and system scanning countermeasures
    recognize how to take over a remote system
    attempt to exploit a target system using Nessus and Metasploit
    List countermeasure techniques to protect against system exploitation
