What is Penetration Testing?


 

About Penetration Testing

 

Penetration Testing, Pen-testing, & Ethical Hacking? 

Penetration testing (also called pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or Web application to safely find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit.  Penetration testing is useful in evaluating the security defense posture of an organization as well as the types of security policies and controls that are in place.

The Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) explains penetration testing as having 7 phases:

  • Pre-engagement Interactions

  • Intelligence Gathering

  • Threat Modeling

  • Vulnerability Analysis

  • Exploitation

  • Post Exploitation

  • Reporting

There are many organizations that provide guidance on Penetration Testing Frameworks including the OWASP Testing Framework, NIST 800-115, PCI DSS Penetration Testing Guidance, the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual, and the Information Systems Security Assessment Framework (ISSAF), to name a few.  Choice of methodology is generally based on the objectives of the business and their compliance requirements.  The OWASP Testing Guide can be downloaded here.
