Ethical Hacking - Module 3 : Scanning4

6. Draw Network Diagrams

The mapping of networks into diagrams helps you to identify the topology or the architecture of the target network. The network diagram also helps you to trace out the path to the target host in the network. It also allows you to understand the position of firewalls, routers, and other access control devices.Based on 
the network diagram, the attacker can analyze the target 
network's topology and security mechanisms.It helps an attacker to see the firewalls, IDSs, and other security mechanisms of the target network.
