In this tutorial we are going to learn about the cisco-torch which is penetration testing tool in kali linux.
Cisco Torch mass scanning, fingerprinting, and exploitation tool was written while working on the next edition of the “Hacking Exposed Cisco Networks”
The main feature that makes Cisco-torch different from similar tools is the extensive use of forking to launch multiple scanning processes on the background for maximum scanning efficiency. Also, it uses several methods of application layer fingerprinting simultaneously, if needed. We wanted something fast to discover remote Cisco hosts running Telnet, SSH, Web, NTP and SNMP services and launch dictionary attacks against the services discovered.
Tools included in the cisco-torch package
cisco-torch – Cisco device scanner
cisco-torch Usage Example”
Run all available scan types -A against the target IP address 192.168.43.184
This is all what is cisco-torch and how to use it.
