CAPEC Category 281 - Analyze Target

Attack patterns within this category focus on the analysis of a target system, protocol, message, or application in order to overcome protections on the target or as a precursor to other attacks. Analysis can involve dissection of an application, analysis of message patterns, formal analysis of protocols, or other methods. The outcome of these attacks can be disclosure of sensitive information, or disclosure of security configuration that leads to further attacks targeted to discovered weaknesses.
