Network And Systems Profiling

The first step of any network-based attack is to identify the potential targets and values. Systems and networks are cased and details such as operating system, service pack, application/service, version, patch-level, port, and so on, are enumerated. Once this data has been obtained, the attack process is now simplified and streamlined, and systems and/or applications can be surgically targeted, which reduces the amount of traffic involved in the attack. If attack traffic can be minimized and slowed or fragmented, then it is possible (and indeed likely) that it could avoid IDS detection.
