Hello fellow 0x00ers! In this post, I am introducing my new series- "Networking for Newbies".
When looking at networking basics, understanding the way a network operates is the first step to understanding it. In this series, I will give you an overview of the different terms and technologies commonly used. I will also include further links to help you understand the discussed topic better but researching and diving deep should be your work. This is the list of topics I will be covering in this series:
- IPv4 and IPv6
- Public vs Private IP
- Routers & Switches
- OSI Model
- MAC Addressing and the ARP Protocol
Once you are familiar with these technologies, you should be able to use the tools related to network hacking in pen-testing distros with a lot more comfort. Also, this will help you to understand how the Internet actually works. Looking forward to the responses I get!
If you see any topic I am missing here and is worth including, do reply here. Also, I would love to have suggestions!
