Course description


Footprinting and Recon (Reconnaissance) go hand-in-hand in terms of cyber security. The attack surface of a system, network, or organization is referred to as the footprint. Determining that footprint and covertly collecting information on the target is referred to as recon. The process of footprinting and recon is often used early in an attack by penetration testers. Hackers usually spend most of their time in reconning, by collecting information about the host, people and network related to the organization. On the other hand, footprinting helps in identifying the security posture, attack area, vulnerabilities and network map of an organiztion.
