Abstract

Penetration testing is the process of evaluating computer and network security by performing a real-work attack on a target system. My presentation will cover four main steps in a fairly standard penetration testing methodology. This involves active and passive reconnaissance, host discovery, port and vulnerability scanning, and exploiting any vulnerability found in order to gain administrative access to a machine. Backtrack Linux is a distribution of Ubuntu Linux that includes a large variety of tools used for computer and network forensics. I will be explaining the penetration testing methodology while using Backtrack Linux.
