Understand the role of Banner Grabbing in determining the operating system running on a remote target system and examine the various tools that are used to accomplish it.
Research and Write:
For this assignment, research and describe at least 3 different tools that can perform banner grabbing functions. Please then prepare a 5-6 page double spaced paper with citations and appropriate screenshots of banner grabbing activities performed against systems of your choice to support the questions below:
As you research this consider:
1. What is the purpose of banner grabbing?
2. What information does it provide and how can it be used against a potential victim?
3. Banner grabbing can be a passive activity. What is the difference between active and passive banner grabbing?
4. Research and discuss methods to prevent or confuse banner grabbing results. How can this help keep a company safe?
A reminder about graduate-level learning:
Graduate-level student learning will involve more of a focus on “diving in deeper” to the content. Expanding on the initial topic includes both written and oral presentation on the field of study experience, in combination with independent research and course content, will be essential elements of your graduate studies.
To have an experience isn’t enough to establish learning – you need to intentionally and thoughtfully reflect upon the experience, considering what you learned from it in order to take something away from it!
