Welcome to the “Network and Vulnerability Scanning by using Nmap & Nessus” course. This course is our 3rd course in our Ethical Hacking series.
I wanted to use “Hacking Essentials” in front of the name of the course, but size limit didn’t allow it.
Why “hacking essentials”?
To be able to perform a successful penetration testing or ethical hacking, first, you have to know all the secrets of your targets. You should find all the systems and network devices of your target network before proceeding an ethical hacking operation.
You’ll learn the details of Nmap, which is the most known and defacto network scanning tool. After downloading and installing Nmap. By hands on lessons, you will be able to use it as an ip port scanner, open port tester and checking for devices’ operating system and other features.
Then in further lessons, we’ll scan the vulnerabilities of the network we discovered by using Nessus. Nessus is the most known vulnerability scanner and is in the third place of the most popular cyber security tools.
