Comment 1. Systems admins always try to keep ports closed for public use, which is not required. There are many firewall solutions available on the market, starting from simple iptables and ending with complex cloud solutions. In our current case, we will take a look at several interesting tools like Nmap and hping and methods on how to find out if a port is actually used by something.
The first tool we will try is Nmap. It provides numerous features to assist in mapping and grasping intricate networks. Firewalls can attempt to render the reconnaissance phase and Nmap's scanning capabilities less efficient for the adversary.
The hacker can evade the firewalls and intrusion detection systems implemented by their adversaries by using several firewall evasion techniques with Nmap. The -f command induces our scan to deploy diminutive fragmented IP packets.
Specifically, our command utilizes 16 bytes per fragment which diminishes the number of fragments. Fragmented packets is one of them and consist in sending several tiny packets instead of one normal size packet. You can use fragmented packets with Nmap using the "-f" option, however, nowadays most firewall and IDS detect fragmented packets. Remember that the offset size has to be a multiple of Additionally, we try to use some scripts from the Nmap NSE like "firewall-bypass," but I should warn you that results from the usage of this script can be a false positive with a high percentage.
This script detects a vulnerability in Netfilter and other firewalls that use helpers to dynamically open ports for protocols such as FTP and sip in our case, we also combine it with stealth scan. The script works by spoofing a packet from the target server asking for opening a related connection to a target port, which will be fulfilled by the firewall through the adequate protocol helper port.
The attacking machine should be on the same network segment as the firewall for this to work. Real path filter is used to prevent such attacks. This is the simple usage of a quick verbose vulnerability scan with the help of Nmap and NSE.
Below, we will provide some information about the keys we are using here:. The interface is inspired to the ping 8 unix command, but hping isn't only able to send ICMP echo requests. It is one kind of tester for network security and one of the de-facto tools for security auditing and testing of firewalls and networks.
It was used to exploit the idle scan scanning technique, which now is implemented in the Nmap scanner as well. A subset of the stuff you can do using hping include:. From the command output, we see that 1 packet was sent and received. We going to test a well-known port 80 HTTP.
In the server response, we can see that our target responded, but this time with the RST flag set. Over a million developers have joined DZone.

Hping: How to better understand how hackers attack
Understand your enemy, and you'll know how to stop him. When I "discovered" the packet-crafting tool Hping , I gained real insight into precisely how the bad guys attack networks Good guys commonly use it to scan ports for holes that bad guys try to exploit. It's also useful for testing network machines by firing precompiled exploits at them. But Hping's packet-crafting function is what really opened my eyes.
Firewall Basic Bypassing Techniques With Nmap and Hping3
Using hping2 you are able to perform at least the following stuff: - Test firewall rules - Advanced port scanning - Test net performance using different protocols, packet size, TOS type of service and fragmentation. Development is open so you can send me patches, suggestion and affronts without inhibitions. The default is to wait one second between each packet. Using hping2 to transfer files tune this option is really important in order to increase transfer rate. Hping will send 10 packets for second. Nothing is displayed except the summary lines at startup time and when finished.
