In a port scanning attack, an unauthorized application is used to scan the host devices for available services and open ports for subsequent use in an attack. This type of scanning can be used as a DoS attack when the probing packets are sent excessively.


Configure scanning threat detection as shown in the example below.

ASA(config)# threat-detection scanning-threat shun
