Question description

Case Study: The Ethical Hacker

Imagine for a moment that you are a hacker; an ethical one. You are called upon by law enforcement based on your expertise to hack into a network of a business known to be launching crimes against humanity as its primary mission for operation and capital gain. Assume you are not to be concerned with any politics of the job and your actions are legal and ethically justified. This nefarious business takes its own security seriously and therefore has implemented several forms of network security such as firewalls, Web proxies for its Web gateways, and VPNs for remote users. You also know that this business exists much like any normal corporation, renting several floors of office space to accommodate between 100-200 employees. Also imagine that the business’s entire network topology is located in that same location. Your goal is to infiltrate the security enough to find evidence included in the local MSQL database. You need to remain anonymous and operate within the reasonable parameters of the law. 

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Explain your method of attack and operation within reasonable parameters of the law.
  2. Discuss specific malware, social engineer, or any other type of attacks you would deploy to achieve your desired goals.
  3. Assess the hurdles you expect and how you plan to overcome them.
  4. Determine how you would remain anonymous without blowing your cover.
