You have to accomplish the following task:
- You have to check what security holes can be exploited on your dedicated firewall machine
and
- You have to make a report about that.

And here come my questions:
- What tools would you use to check if your firewall (and your LAN) is configured properly?
- How would you write the report?


Here are the tools that i would use: nmap, hping, nc, sing, icmpenum, Languard Network Scanner (GFI), Retina (eEye).

What about you?

Under the Security and Firewalls topic in the forum, Sahirh wrote an article called "Penetration Testing - Tools Of The Trade," it tells you the popular tools used, how to write the reports, and some other helpful stuff, here's the link:

if you decide to take the long way, it's the 2nd page in that topic


hope that helps

Don't forget firewalk, I don't know if I mentioned it there (yes you can use hping, but there is more scope for a small mistake).

Check out hping3.. the scriptability is incredible (ok so I haven't got it figured out much yet, but from what I've seen in the examples etc.. its just too awesome).

Cheers,
