Scanning

Scanning is the second step that is performed after footprinting. It involves scanning open ports, fingerprinting the operating system, and uncovering services on ports. The ultimate goal of scanning is to find open ports through external or internal network scanning, pinging machines, determining network ranges, and port scanning individual systems.
