FOOT PRINTING 2 Due to the increased rate of cyber-attack, it is essential for business firms and companies to stay protected from hackers and technological attacks. Numerous methods can be employed to realize a safe technical environment. There has been a lot of research on the nature of scanning that can be carried out and the extent of resources that can be used to facilitate the entire process of scanning and footprinting. In this paper, I am obliged to discuss some of the preliminary activities that ought to be carried out before a passive scan on any highlighted target, (Lehto, 2013). I will also describe some of the tools that are required in the activities of carrying out any scanning procedure as well as the results that might be obtained highlighting any flaws that might be witnessed. Passive scanning refers to the actual way of detecting various forms of vulnerabilities depending on information obtained from some key networks and also ensuring that the data and information are obtained without direct interaction. It is suggested that packet sniffing tools can be applied in the event of passive scanning. It is meant to reveal information on subjects such as the operating system via the embrace of highlighted procedures on running ports. Bugs have also been shown to play a critical role in active network applications, (Lehto, 2013).

    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.
