Mapping and Monitoring
The graduate executes network mapping and monitoring procedures using industry-standard software for identifying vulnerabilities and threats.
In the changing field of cybersecurity, you will need to continually identify new threats to your network as evidenced in the network itself and the traffic on that network. You will need to know how to run network mapping and monitoring software to find vulnerabilities and anomalies that could impact the security of your network in order to recommend sound solutions.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
B. Summarize the vulnerabilities on the network and their potential implications based on your Nmap results.
C. Describe the anomalies you found when running Wireshark, on the network capture file, and include evidence of the range of packets associated with each anomaly.
D. Summarize the potential implications of not addressing each of the anomalies found when running Wireshark.
E. Recommend solutions for eliminating or minimizing all identified vulnerabilities or anomalies from Wireshark and Nmap. Use current, industry-respected, reliable research and sources to support your recommendations for each vulnerability or anomaly.
F. Acknowledge sources, using in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.
G. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
