The Port Scan tool scans a target system or network for open ports, providing information on which ports are actively listening and potentially vulnerable to unauthorized access, aiding in network security assessments, vulnerability detection, and firewall configuration analysis.
A communication endpoint or logical construct used in network protocols to identify specific services or processes.
A port that is accessible and actively listening for incoming connections.
A port that is accessible but not actively listening for incoming connections.
A port that is being blocked by a firewall, preventing the scanner from determining its status.
A port scanning technique where the scanner attempts to avoid detection by sending packets that are unlikely to trigger a response.
A type of scan that leverages ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) packets to gather information about hosts or networks.
A type of port scan that sends TCP SYN packets to determine if ports are open, closed, or filtered.
A type of scan that sends TCP ACK packets to determine if ports are filtered or unfiltered.
A type of port scan that sends UDP packets to determine if ports are open or closed.
A type of scan that involves scanning IP addresses to identify active hosts within a network range.
A network scan that uses the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) to map IP addresses to MAC addresses in a local network.
The process of gathering information about a target system, such as its operating system, services, and versions, to aid in further exploitation or enumeration.
