web enumeration is a techniques hackers use when targeting web servers and web sites. When attempting to hack an application with a vulnerabilty, you first have to find out what files, subdomains or directories the applications are vulnerable to. On top of that, you may find hidden files that could give you access to the file server. Perhaps you can access SSH keys, pdfs or find hidden directories. It might be there is a vulnerable app running on one of the sub domains. There are many ways the server could be accessible and web enumeration is the first step.
In this course you will learn how to scan for directories, files, subdomains but also how to scan blogs made with wordpress for vulnerabilities. While you can do manual scanning, that quickly becomes cumbersome. In this course we explain how you can do automated scans on your target server.
