I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have a good summary of the means and tools though maybe past dated. Nmap is quite versatile and goid as the first starter to scan for low janging fruits like open port services, weak settings etc. Tcpdump is another good mentioned though it may needa more in depth understanding of the packet like knowing where to check the TLS cipher, etc. There is also the Metasploit for exploring too but that will be on later stage once you gather some fingerprint on the device profile..
