What is Recon and Footprinting?

Footprinting and Recon (Reconnaissance) go hand-in-hand in terms of cyber security. The attack surface of a system, network, or organization is referred to as the footprint. Determining that footprint and covertly collecting information on the target is referred to as recon. The process of footprinting and recon is often used early in an attack by penetration testers.
