A Penetration Testing, or pen-test, is an attempt to assess the security of an IT infrastructure by carefully trying to exploit vulnerabilities. The process of penetration testing involves assessing your chosen systems for any potential weaknesses that could result from poor or improper system configuration, known and unknown hardware or software flaws, and operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures. Penetration Testing can be performed in the forms:
- Black Box Penetration Testing – Testing is Performed with Zero Knowledge
- White Box Penetration Testing – Testing is Performed with Some Knowledge
- Grey Box Penetration Testing – Testing is Performed with Full Knowledge
