Proj 1x: Port Scanning Challenges (15 pts. extra credit)
What You Need
A Kali Linux machine, real or virtual. You could use Windows with Python installed, but it's easier to just use Linux.
Challenge 1: Find a Service (5 pts. extra credit)
There is another service listening on attackdirect.samsclass.info
on a port number ending in 000; that is, one of these: 1000, 2000, 3000, etc.
The service you want has a banner starting with
"Congratulations! You found the hidden"
Hunt for it until you find it. Capture a
whole-desktop image similar to the example
below for an additional 5 points. Save the
image as "Proj 1xa from YOUR NAME".
Challenge 2: Port Knocking (10 pts. extra credit)
There is a hidden service on port 3003. To open it, you must send these packets to "knock":
When the server receives the correct knock, port 3003 will open for 5 seconds and then close. You must grab the banner from port 3003 during that brief period. The correct banner starts with "Congratulations!"
- A SYN to port 3100 (Note: a connect() call sends a SYN)
- Another SYN to a secret hidden port, which is one of these: (3100, 3200, 3300, 3400, 3500, 3600, 3700, 3800, 3900)
- A 2-second delay (see this link)
Note: If many students are knocking at the same time, the knockd service may fail to recognize a valid sequence of packets, so you may have to try 2 or 3 times to see the
