Enumeration is the primary phase of ethical hacking that is information gathering. In this phase, the attacker builds an active connection with the victim and tries to gain as much information as possible to find out the weaknesses or vulnerabilities in the system, and tries to exploit the system further.

Enumeration collects information about:

  • Network shares
  • Passwords policies lists
  • IP tables
  • SNMP data, if they are not secured properly
  • Usernames of different systems
