What is pen testing?

Penetration testing, also known as security testing, security auditing or pen testing, is a process that simulates cyber-attacks in a controlled environment to identify vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit by stealing information or installing malware.

This analysis makes it possible to verify whether the security measures implemented by the organization are really effective. Once complete, a report is delivered highlighting the vulnerabilities found, prioritizing them according to their impact and offering recommendations to mitigate the risks.

The importance of pen testing in business cybersecurity

Cybersecurity has become an increasingly relevant concern for companies in the digital age. With the increase in cyber threats, protecting the sensitive data of businesses and their customers has become critical. Pen testing seeks to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses of systems and applications, through the simulation of controlled attacks. Its relevance lies in the ability to detect and solve possible security breaches, thus avoiding potential incidents that could compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.

Tailored pen testing for:

Web applications

Identifies vulnerabilities in websites and services hosted on servers and accessible through browsers.

Specific tools such as scanners and interceptor proxies, such as Burp Suite and OWASP ZAP, are used to detect and exploit vulnerabilities such as SQLi, XSS and CSRF.

The main risks in web servers include data exposure and manipulation, and compromising user accounts.

Systems infrastructure

Evaluates an organization’s network and systems, including servers, network devices, and firewalls, looking for vulnerable configurations and outdated or unauthorized software.

Tools such as Nmap, Metasploit and Nessus are used to test the network, covering both cloud systems and local data centers.

The main risks in systems infrastructure are unauthorized access, unauthorized activity  within the network and the risk of exposure of system data.

Pen test approaches:

What is a black box test?

A black box analysis is one in which the tester has no prior knowledge of the internal systems of the application or infrastructure being tested. It focuses on identifying vulnerabilities from the perspective of an external attacker, without information about the internal workings. A real scenario is simulated in which an attacker tries to find weaknesses without having access to internal configurations and source codes.

What is a white box test?

In a white box analysis, the tester has full access to the infrastructure to be tested, the configuration of the systems, the software documentation and the source code. The objective is to identify vulnerabilities that may not be evident from an external perspective. By having complete knowledge of the system, it is possible to perform a thorough and detailed review, identifying specific problems.

What is a gray box test?

Gray box analysis is a combination of the black box and white box approaches. The tester has partial knowledge of the system, which may include access to some code details, architecture designs or documentation. This allows for a more detailed assessment, as it combines the perspective of an external attacker with internal knowledge of certain aspects of the system.

Pen test phases

Collection of information

The information gathering phase is essential to establish the objective of the system or application evaluation. In this first phase, the exact scope of the test is defined, specifically determining which systems, networks or applications will be audited. Relevant information is gathered on the infrastructure, architecture, technologies used and possible weaknesses. This stage lays the foundation for the development of the pen test and facilitates the identification of areas of greatest risk.

Vulnerability scanning and exploitation: identification and testing

In this phase, an exhaustive analysis of the system or application is carried out in search of vulnerabilities. Specialized tools and techniques are used to identify potential security breaches. Once identified, controlled tests are performed to check the exploitability of these vulnerabilities. This process provides a clear view of the risks to which the system or application is exposed.

Risk reporting and mitigation: corrective actions

Once testing is complete, detailed reports are generated summarizing the findings, the vulnerabilities discovered and details on the most critical exploitation methods, along with recommendations for mitigating the identified risks. These reports provide clear guidance for decision-making and implementation of corrective actions. Risk mitigation is essential to strengthen security and ensure the protection of the systems and applications evaluated.
