Network engineers are engaged in analyzing various kinds of threats, vulnerabilities and attacks which are mainly used for overcoming them. In the coming pages various kinds of methods have been discussed in details which can be easily used for overcoming a large number of attacks.
Various kinds of attacks like Denial of service attacks, social engineering and malware has been discussed in details. A proper kind of DDoS attack occurs when the working ability of the various kinds of device has been prevented. Any kind of triggering which is done on the given device can be easily used for overcoming large number of problem and issues. A proper kind of DoS attack can be easily done by any kind of help from detection of error. A much simple kind of DoS attack can be easily done with the help of any kind of third party network. It ultimately focuses various kinds of availability of given network into another kind of given network capacity. Another common type of attack in a network is all about social engineering. This kind of attack generally requires a much certain value or level of skills. Social engineering does not come up with any kind of advantage like social methods that is mainly used for gathering some kind of important information. Malware is generally termed as malware software which is considered to be attacks. Malware is mainly inclusive of certain number of things like adware, Trojan, worm and virus.
Network security Tools
Nmap is defined as a free and open tool which is used for analyzing different kinds of threat related to security. Various security administrator round the globe can easily considered to be helpful in dealing with large number of issues like proper management of services, management of inventory, proper monitoring of service upgrades. This tool is considered to be very helpful for IP packets in given novel that is mainly used for analyzing different host available on the network. This tool is also helpful in checking various kinds of services of operation for its proper running. Nmap has been designed in such a way that it is very helpful in analyzing network and other different kinds of tools which are available for any kind of testing. Nmap networking tool is used in large number of platform of operating system like linux, windows and lastly Mac OS.
Nmap comes up with large number of benefits like:
Flexible: It supports a large number of advance techniques which is generally used for mapping out network which is filled with various kinds of things like firewalls, routers and other kinds of obstacles. This is mainly inclusive of port scanning mechanism that is TCP and UDP, detection of OS.
Powerful: Nmap is generally prepared by the help of scanning of huge number of networks which mainly comes up with thousands of machines.
Metasploit is considered to be one of widely used tool which is used in hacking in the domain of security. It mainly provides a large number of content and infrastructure which is mainly used for performing a large number of security test. It is considered to be much famous kind of tool in the domain of security. It can be also stated like a proper kind of tool which is used for performing a large number of tests. It can be easily stated to be famous model that is generally used for various kinds of stages like deployment, exploitation and testing of various kinds of codes.
Techniques for threat Mitigation
A large number of stages can be easily used for overcoming different problems in a network like:
- Proper configuration of firewall
- Segregating network into constituent’s parts
- Different web application
- Proper management of patch.
- Privilege of given network.
Configuration of firewall: Configuration of firewall is all about its proper management. It generally analyzes different kinds of configuration which is generally considered to be active in nature.
Web vulnerabilities: Problems and weakness in a given network or web application is taken to main vendors by which various attacks takes place in an organization.
Management of patch: It is taken to be one of the ways in different kind of method by which different kind of system and services are mainly patched as per the given requirement.
From the above discussion it can be easily stated that report is all about kinds of network tools which is mainly used for checking various kinds of threats in a network. Various kinds of identification have been done regarding addressing of various threats. Two type of network tools that is Nmap and metaspliot has been discussed in brief in the above pages of the report. After that a list of threat mitigation tools in network has been discussed in details. The tool networking tools that is Nmap and Metasploit are available in Linux kali. It is installed in any kind of virtual machine for exploitation of current network. A large number of steps like proper configuration of firewall, web application has been discussed in details in the above pages of the report.
The following report reflects on two security tools for checking or analysing various kinds of threats and providing a list of solution to overcome or mitigate them. Nmap and Metasploit are considered to be two kind of open source networking tool which is mainly used for checking various kinds of vulnerabilities which are present in the given network. These tools are easily available in kali Linux. It is mainly installed in the virtual machine for exploitation of given or provided network. Various kinds of threats have been easily identified and have been discussed in brief in the coming pages. These threats have been identified by the help of two tools that is Nmap and Metasploit.
