A security administrator is conducting a penetration test on a network. She connects a notebook system running Linux to a wireless network and then uses NMAP to probe various network hosts to see which operating system they are running.
Which process did the administrator use in the penetration test in this scenario?
Active fingerprinting
A security administrator is conducting a penetration test on a network. She connects a notebook system to a mirror port on a network switch. She then uses a packet sniffer to monitor network traffic to try and determine which operating systems are running on network hosts.
Which process did the administrator use in the penetration test in this scenario?
Passive fingerprinting
Drag each penetration test characteristic on the left to the appropriate penetration test name on the right.
White box test
The tester has detailed information about the target system prior to starting the test.

Grey Box test
The tester has the same about of information that would be available to a typical insider in the organization.

Black box test
