Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing

What is Pentesting:
This proactive approach helps identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that malicious actor could exploit. By conducting thorough assessments, businesses can strengthen their defenses and safeguard sensitive data from potential breaches.

Web API Pentesting:

  • Assessing web applications and APIs for vulnerabilities like SQL injection, XSS, CSRF, etc.
  • Testing authentication mechanisms, authorization controls, and session management.
  • Evaluating API endpoints for proper input validation, output encoding, and data protection.

Examples: OWASP Top 10 assessment, API endpoint security analysis.

Mobile Pentesting:

  • ┬áTesting mobile applications (Android/iOS) for security flaws and weaknesses.
  • Analyzing data storage, encryption methods, and inter-app communication.
  • Assessing permissions, authentication mechanisms, and insecure data transmission.

Examples: Jailbreaking/rooting devices for deeper analysis, testing push notifications for security risks.

Cloud Pentesting:

  • Evaluating cloud infrastructure (AWS, Azure, GCP) for misconfigurations and vulnerabilities.
  • Assessing identity and access management (IAM) policies, storage security, and network configurations.
  • Testing for API security, server-side vulnerabilities, and data breaches.

Examples: AWS S3 bucket misconfigurations, Azure VM security assessment.

Thick Client Pentesting:

  • Assessing desktop or standalone applications for security weaknesses.
  • Reverse engineering binaries to identify vulnerabilities and insecure coding practices.
  • Testing local data storage, memory handling, and communication protocols.

Examples: Exploiting buffer overflows, analyzing encrypted communication channels.

Network Pentesting:

  • Evaluating network infrastructure for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.
  • Conducting port scanning, service enumeration, and vulnerability assessment.
  • Testing firewall rules, intrusion detection/prevention systems, and VPN security.

Examples: Exploiting weak passwords via brute force attacks, exploiting open ports for unauthorized access.

Each type of pentesting requires specialized knowledge and tools tailored to the target environment, ensuring comprehensive security assessments.
