Professional pentesting from ZANKET
This process refers to detection of any threats your network security system can be subjected to, which can be done by means of thorough testing network or security system itself. During such procedure your system will be tested by various kinds of harmful threats and/or attacks in order to get important data unavailable to malicious actors entering the system using unauthorized access in the end. Any holes or vulnerabilities attackers can use to infiltrate your network found may be used in order to obtain access to any confidential data needed.
Instant security system, intranet or server vulnerabilities identification process is of much importance to any company for all information gathered may be used in order to prevent any unauthorized access or external threats and attacks in future. Note that each company can face all kinds of legal problems related to theft of personal data and bank account access details.
Social engeneering In fact, all kinds of errors made by human users could become fatal when
speaking of security system vulnerabilities. Moreover, it is of much importance for each employer to
strictly observe all standards and policies related to system security in order to avoid any further
threats and attacks. Be sure to know that any confidential data should not be stored in any e-mails
or cells and tablets. Note that ordering a thorough network security system audit is the best
solution to locate all these vulnerabilities.
Software testing In order to find out all vulnerabilities and threats you server or network security system may be subjected to it is necessary to check it by means of special software.
Physical penetration testing The most efficient solution to protect confidential data is a so-called penetration tests that are able to reveal all vulnerabilities your system may be subjected to on a physical level. Be sure to know that these tests are widely used in military institutions and government agencies. Moreover, they gained popularity in all those companies that compel to store payment data and bank account details each client possesses. These tests are able to check out all physical network devices and hotspots in order to prevent any further threats and attacks violating your system security.
External Network test addressing security vulnerabilities at the network layer* and also including host configuration** vulnerabilities
Internal Network (on your internal network) test addressing security vulnerabilities at the network layer* and also including host configuration** vulnerabilities.
Web Application penetration test. Injection flaws, such as SQL, OS, XXE, and LDAP injection occur when untrusted data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker’s hostile data can trick the interpreter into executing unintended commands or accessing data without proper authorization.
Wireless penetration test, in conjunction with an internal network penetration test, for one wireless access point and associated client devices..
Injection Injection flaws, such as SQL, OS, XXE, and LDAP injection occur when untrusted data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker’s hostile data can trick the interpreter into executing unintended commands or accessing data without proper authorization.
Broken Authentication and Session Management Application functions related to authentication and session management are often implemented incorrectly, allowing attackers to compromise passwords, keys, or session tokens, or to exploit other implementation flaws to assume other users’ identities (temporarily or permanently).
Broken Access Control Restrictions on what authenticated users are allowed to do are not properly enforced. Attackers can exploit these flaws to access unauthorized functionality and/or data, such as access other users' accounts, view sensitive files, modify other users’ data, change access rights, etc.
Security Misconfiguration Good security requires having a secure configuration defined and deployed for the application, frameworks, application server, web server, database server, platform, etc. Secure settings should be defined, implemented, and maintained, as defaults are often insecure. Additionally, software should be kept up to date.
Sensitive Data Exposure Many web applications and APIs do not properly protect sensitive data, such as financial, healthcare, and PII. Attackers may steal or modify such weakly protected data to conduct credit card fraud, identity theft, or other crimes. Sensitive data deserves extra protection such as encryption at rest or in transit, as well as special precautions when exchanged with the browser.
Insufficient Attack Protection The majority of applications and APIs lack the basic ability to detect, prevent, and respond to both manual and automated attacks. Attack protection goes far beyond basic input validation and involves automatically detecting, logging, responding, and even blocking exploit attempts. Application owners also need to be able to deploy patches quickly to protect against attacks.
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) A CSRF attack forces a logged-on victim’s browser to send a forged HTTP request, including the victim’s session cookie and any other automatically included authentication information, to a vulnerable web application. Such an attack allows the attacker to force a victim’s browser to generate requests the vulnerable application thinks are legitimate requests from the victim.
Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities Components, such as libraries, frameworks, and other software modules, run with the same privileges as the application. If a vulnerable component is exploited, such an attack can facilitate serious data loss or server takeover. Applications and APIs using components with known vulnerabilities may undermine application defenses and enable various attacks and impacts.
Penetration Testing: Black Box vs. White Box.
If you are considering having your network penetration tested then more than likely you with either go down the black box or white box route.
Black Box Testing
The main differences are that with black box texting the testers are given very little or no information prior to the penetration test. It is also referred to as "blind testing" because the tester has to find an open route to access the network.
White Box Testing.
Is when the tester is given full disclosure about the network prior to the penetration testing. This will include IP addresses, source code, network protocols and diagrams. Also known as "Full Disclosure" testing.
Grey Box Testing "Partial Disclosure Testing" .
In between black box and white box testing you will find grey box testing. The penetration tester will be given partial details about the network infrastructure.
Pros & Cons of Back Box & White Box Testing
White Box testing would indicate results if you had a threat from inside the network that was using knowledge of your network, such as IP addresses, router access, active ports, web servers, FTP, and even passwords. A black box tester would not have this information and usually unable to scan the network for threats as thoroughly.
You will never meet a person who doesn’t want to succeed in their job; someone who doesn’t want to rise to the top, and be known for what they do. For many, their motivation comes from wanting to do their best.
