 Remote Network Analysis

(21. Chaos Communication Congress. In 21C3 Proceedings, presented in Berlin, Germany, pages 33-37, ISBN: 3-934636-02-0, Dec. 2004)


It is often necessary to collect information about remote sys- tems without having direct shell access to them. Additional knowledge about the system's (operating system and user space) software and the network structure is very helpful for identifying possible attack scenarios which could finally lead to a compromise of the remote system or network. Most systems are accessible from the internet through the IP protocol suite but often protected by a more or less sophisticated firewall/packetfilter. This paper presents a collection of techniques which can be used to map hosts and networks without leaving any traces to Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS).
