In this assignment, students will quantify a network in order to map it, ensure everything in the system is reporting correctly, and demonstrate one of the first steps a hacker would take to try to gain access to the system.
Using NMAP, quantify a home or work network. Refer to the Internet to provide guidance on the installation and configuration of NMAP. Then, identify the following:
- The number and type of systems attached to the network (e.g., servers, cameras, workstations, mobile devices, security cameras, and so forth)
- What is on the network
- Who is on the network
- The acceptable use policy or, for a workplace, the policy put out from the company
Compile your findings including screenshots from the NMAP program. Make sure to include the following statement from the asset owner: “Use of these assets are governed by <insert title>, <insert date> and <insert version>.”
APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
Refer to “Quantify the System Scoring Guide,” prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
