Description

1. List several services running on each host (list host by host with IP separately)? (5 points)

2. Is Nmap able to identify the operating system running on each system? Is there any Nmapfeature that can be used to guess the OS of the host? Explain your answer. Using the ports that are open and the probable services running on those ports, determine what operating systems are running on each host (separately). Explain your answer.  (15 points)

 

3. Which host appears most secure? Least secure? Explain your answers. (5 points)

 

4. Describe several important uses of Nmap. (5 points)

 

5. Which feature(s) of Nmap did you find the most useful and why? (5 points)

 

6. Which feature(s) of Nmap did you find the most difficult to use and why? (5 points)

 

7. Research a Nmap command or feature that you consider important but not covered in thislab. Describe its usage and report your findings when running the command against the host in the lab. (10 points)
Lab Questions – Part B: (50 Points)

1. What operating systems are running on the different hosts (list host by host with IP for each host separately)? (4 points)

 

2. What web server (if any) is running on each computer (specify the web server for each host with IP separately)? (4 points)

 

3. List several services running on each computer (list host by host with IP for each host separately)? (4 points)

 

 

4. Which host had the highest number of vulnerabilities? Which host had the least number of vulnerabilities? (4 points)

 

5. Identify one high severity vulnerability for each computer (if there is one). Describe the vulnerability and discuss control(s) to minimize the risk from the vulnerability. (4 points)

 

6. Identify and describe at least three important uses of Nessus. (4 points)

 

7. Which feature(s) of Nessus did you find the most useful and why? (4 points)

 

8. Which feature(s) of Nessus did you find the most difficult to use and why? (4 points)

 

9. What are the major differences between Nessus and Nmap? (4 points)

 

10. What would you change about this lab? Any suggestion or feedback? (4 points)

 

11. Research a Nessus command or feature that is considered important but not covered in this lab. Describe its usage and report your findings when running the command or feature against the host in the lab. (10 points)
