Course Description

Network discovery is the process of identifying or mapping internal networks and computer resources in an organization. Conveniently, network discovery tools can be used to automate the scanning process and discover all the devices on a specific network. In this course, you'll learn about the OSI and TCP/IP models, and how they are used to facilitate communication between entities on a network. Explore how security controls behave at different layers of the OSI and TCP/IP models. Explore common network devices and learn how they can be compromised physically or administratively. Discover how to differentiate between discovery, footprinting, and scanning tools, and explore categories of discovery tools including auditing, vulnerability scanning, and SNMP. Explore Nmap, Zenmap, and SuperScan network discovery tools, and learn when to use protocol analyzer tools such as Wireshark. Lastly, discover the benefits of periodically referencing the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures database. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
