My Life as Information security engineer Chapter 1: Tools


Hi folks, here I am going to share the tools list that I am using in my daily life cycle.


 Nmap (“Network Mapper”) is a free and open-source (license) utility for network discovery and security auditing.

Basically, I will use it to discover the open ports and closed ports where I did Port Mapping in firewalls.

We can use this in the local network as well as in the WAN network.

Also with help of the NSE script, we do multiple things like vulnerability check, exploitation, etc.,



curl is a tool to transfer data from or to a server, using one of the supported protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, DICT, TELNET, LDAP or FILE). Normally using this tool to analyze the website headers when my web security device blocking some dynamic content websites and to create the Application signature in IPS.

Wget using to download files directly instead of opening and surfing the browser.


One of my favorite tool in the world, when I feel my download is very slow time I use AXEL to grab all the bandwidth of my office to download a large size file in some minutes.


Apache-guacamole is an open-source  Remote Desktop software.

very much helpful to take multiple RDP, SSH, and VNC sessions at a time from my browser page.

Where we can perform multitasking without increasing CPU usage with a single app.


Other Remote software I use Tail Scale, Boring Proxy


HTTP-Ping is used to check whether the HTTP port is alive or not through the command line also used to check latency and TTL.

But my hero is PPING. But using this utility you can ping any TCP /  UDP ports like ICMP ping.

Mostly I used to check whether the server port was allowed in the firewall or not and try to generate continuous traffic during firewall troubleshooting calls.


The website called using to scan port, directory traversal, Sub-domain, and other information gathering and footprinting activities for my bug bounty programs.

It is a very easy tool where we can perform penetration testing Online.


On the internet multiple IP scanners available but I am always using tools are Advanced IP Scanner and NMAP. I am using these tools when the time of cyber attacks like DDoS, Protocol-based attacks like EternalBlue. Very easy to find the Victim PC.

Other than I am using Metasploit, Ngrok, Nessus, Wireshark, VM-player, Fiddler OpenVAS in my day-to-day life as Information Security Engineer for a different purpose.

Are you using any different tools, let me share will discuss making some noise.

Learn DevOps like a pro techie - PART 1

       Usually, all DevOps trainers advise you to set up the LAB environment on cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc). But if you understand the technologies you can set it up easily on your super PC.   PC REQUIREMENTS : (WARNING!) Processor      :  > = i3 (10th or 11th Gen)  RAM              :  8GB (minimum) Storage          :  SSD preferred TIPS: If you using win11 or win10 and performance is very slow means use the below script. Windows 11 only: Windows 10 only: The LAB mainly depends on the docker platform. So First, start learning the basics of Docker.
