The port scanning is a process of scanning ports of a computer system. A port is a spot where information goes into and out from a computer. The port scanning identifies open doors/ports of a system. Port scanning helps in managing the networks, but it can also be destructive in nature as if someone is sniffing for a weakened access point to breach into the computer system with different critical attacks like DOS, botnet and DDOS.
