Permanent Link: [Article]-Nmap from an Ethical Hacker`s View Part 1
Article by Kirby Tucker
Editor's Note: Kirby is a long time contributor and supporter of EH-Net. So when he came to me with the idea to do a more approachable tutorial series on Nmap, it was a no brainer. Be sure to share your thoughts on this article and Nmap in general in the forum discussion.
What, another Nmap tutorial? Yes that's true, but I am hoping to approach it a little differently than what I have seen available. I want to describe Nmap from the viewpoint of a hacker and at the same time give a clear, step-by-step method of attaining a good level of proficiency. After completing this 2 Part Series and having practiced the techniques described, one should not only be able to sit at a "roundtable" discussion with advanced security professionals and "hold their own" in a discussion concerning Nmap, but also utilize this great tool in their own network.
Be sure to share your thoughts and make suggestions,
