CT-probe - Penetration Analysis
CTProbe is designed to work with NSA. It uses a statistical approach to gathering the most relevent data from a network in order to cut costs and to provide a more accurate assesment of network risk. Many penetration tools are run in a "canvasing" mode wich drives up the consulting fees associated with testing without providing any real network analysis. CTProbe uses strategraphic techiques to organize data and provide better threat assesment. For instance a publicly writable directory for anonymous ftp may be innocuous internally but not outside the firewall. CTProbe is designed to know the difference. NSA a New Approach to Securing the Network will help in understanding the stratagies employed in CTProbe.
