IS3110 Week 3 Lab: Assessment Worksheet Identify Threats and Vulnerabilities in an IT Infrastructure D. Rose Overview Lab Assessment Questions & Answers 1 What are the differences between ZeNmap GUI (Nmap) and Nessus? NMAP is primarily a host detection and port discovery tool. Instead of using Nessus to look for specific vulnerabilities against a known quantity of hosts, NMAP discovers active IP hosts using a combination of probes. On the other hand Nessus takes the open ports into account and notifies you if these ports have potential security vulnerabilities attached to them. Nessus is typically installed on a server and runs as a web-based application. Nessus uses plugins to determine if vulnerability is present on a specified machine ("IS3110 LAB 5 Assessment Worksheet."n.d.). 2 Which scanning application is better for performing a network discovery reconnaissance probing of an IP network infrastructure? In SSIDer is a Wi-Fi network scanner for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Vista, and 7. It is free and open source. The software uses the current wireless card or a wireless USB adapter and supports most GPS devices (namely those that use NMEA 2.3 or higher). Its graphical user interface shows MAC address, SSID, signal strength, hardware brand, security, and network type of nearby Wi-Fi networks. It can also track the strength of the signals and show them in a time graph ("IS3110 LAB 5 Assessment Worksheet."n.d.).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
