    Metasploit, event viewer (syslogs), there are so many really. It all depends on what you are doing. We use ACAS, SECSCN and WASSP. There are also several IDS/IPS that you can know in order to bypass craft an attack that one be detected, etc.

    nmap is one that you need to know well.

    The switches and also what types of responses you get when you hit a closed port, open port, if there is a firewall.

    The Blueprint mentions tools such as WireShark, Airsnort, NMAP, Nessus, Retina, Foundstone and Ecora. Know those ones well for sure.

    Burp Suite, BlackWidow and httrack are good to know about/use.
    You probably wont need to know/use them as thoroughly as WireShark and NMAP though.
