Week 2 assignment– 1.Choose two of the tools and/or techniques used for network enumeration. I would use Nessus and nmap.A. Research them in greater depth than your textbook describes them, using public Internet sites to gather your information. Wikipedia, www.tenable.com/products/nessus, nmap.orgB. Describe your findings.According to Wikipedia, Nmap is a security scanner that essentially creates a map of a network. I chose this technique because it is easy to remember and provides a “big picture” look at a network and its security.Nessus, on the other hand, is an active vulnerability scanner. In addition to the information in the book, I thought it was interesting to find that Nessus was also in mythology, known for killing something undefeatable, which made it stand out as well.Also, I found that both products’ websites contain very clear, useful information since it focused on selling points.
