Secure Your Website Before Hackers Do: Use Cyrin Vulnerability Scanning Package!
As an IT administrator, it’s important to be aware of the tools potential adversaries are likely to use against your networks and your applications.
Not only will this help you prepare for attacks and better secure your systems, it can also identify weaknesses, misconfigurations, or unknown services on your network. And as new vulnerabilities are discovered every day, routine scanning of your network and its services lets you see whether any newly-discovered vulnerabilities apply in your configuration. Labs in this category focus on systems-level scanning and exploitation.
For vulnerabilities specific to web-based applications, also consider labs in our Web Application Security Analysis category.
This package includes all labs in the Vulnerability Scanning category, as well as all new labs in the category released during your subscription period.
Specific prerequisites vary by lab, but generally include basic knowledge of TCP/IP networking and network setup principles, and familiarity with the Unix/Linux command line.
5.0 hours, self-paced. Pause and continue at any time.
5.0 CPEs awarded on successful completion.
Introduction to Metasploit
Students will gain experience with the widely-used open source Metasploit® framework and related tools for exploiting vulnerable software and insecure system configurations. The exercise leads students through the entire process, from scanning the network to getting remote shells and accessing sensitive information. By seeing the tools available to potential attackers, students will gain a greater appreciation for the need to keep software up-to-date and securely configured.
Vulnerability Scanning with OpenVAS
Students will use the free OpenVAS web tool suite to identify vulnerabilities in services available on an unknown network. The network will include several targets with known-vulnerable software versions and/or configurations.
Automating Security Analysis with SPARTA
Students will build on the results of labs in the Web Application Security Analysis and Network Monitoring categories by using the SPARTA network infrastructure penetration testing tool, a graphical application that automates many common vulnerability assessment tasks. Students will use SPARTA within a graphical Kali Linux environment, scanning multiple unknown target systems and exploring found weaknesses.
