What is Computer Network Usage?
Computer Network Exploitation (CNE) is a technique that uses computer networks to infiltrate the networks of target computers in order to extract and collect informational data. It enables the individual computers and computer networks of an external organization or country to be used to collect sensitive or confidential information that is typically hidden and protected from the public.
CNE is mainly used in military institutes and organizations. It is a type of cybersecurity operation and can be considered equivalent to the jobs / processes of real spies or agents. It consists of techniques and processes that computers or computer networks use to penetrate targeted systems and networks. CNE is part of the Computer Network Operation (CNO) series of techniques for exploiting, attacking, and defending against enemy entities or malicious users.
