It is the process of collecting information about the target before gaining access and uncovering it. Different techniques of footprinting are –

  1. Open Source Footprinting – It is a way to find administrator contact information. This information is later used to guess the correct password.
  2. Network Enumeration – Here the hacker tries to identify domain names and network blocks of the target.
  3. Scanning – Scanning includes prying on the active IP addresses of a network.
  4. Stack Fingerprinting – : This is the last footprinting step, which involves mapping the port and host.
