What is Penetration Testing?
Penetration testing (a.k.a. pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or Web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit.
The pen testing process usually involves gathering information about the target before the test. This is called reconnaissance. The next steps are to identify possible entry points, attempt to break in, and then report the findings. These tests are sometimes called “white hat attacks” because no harm is actually done.
Further uses for pen testing include: testing an organization’s security policy compliance, employees’ security awareness, and an organization’s ability to identify and respond to security incidents.
