The following steps will help you for the OS identification using Scapy:
- Windows and Linux/Unix operating systems have different TTL starting values that are used by default. This factor can be used to attempt to fingerprint the type of operating system with which you are communicating. These values are summarized in the following table:
|Operating system||Standard TTL value|
|Microsoft Windows OS||128|
- Some Unix-based systems will start with a default TTL value of 255; however, for simplicity in this exercise, we will use the provided values as the premise for the tasks addressed within this recipe. To analyze the TTL values of a response from the remote system, we first need to build a request. In ...
