Penetration Testing

Usually a covert operation undertaken by a security expert where a number of attacks are attempted to ascertain whether or not a system could withstand the same types of attacks from a malicious hacker.

A penetration test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, service and application flaws, improper configurations, or risky end-user behavior.

 

Penetration testing is an invaluable process for a number of reasons, including the following:

  • Minimal security breach potential ensures system reliability.
  • Complies with regulatory or other agencies.
  • Demonstrates a good-faith effort to protect customer information

Testing tools include:

  • Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) or prebuilt equipment and/or software applications
  • Proprietary enterprise applications (EA)
  • Potentially compromisable phone and wireless systems
  • Physical controls
  • Websites (Techopedia)
