Often the overall security of a software application is impacted due to loopholes in the operating systems, networks, system configuration, third-party services, or endpoints. The QA professionals perform penetration testing to identify the loopholes that make the software vulnerable to targeted security attacks by gaining access to the application’s features and data.

often the overall security of a software

 Often the overall security of a software application is impacted due to

loopholes in the operating systems, networks, system configuration,

third-party services, or endpoints.

 The QA professionals perform penetration testing to identify the

loopholes that make the software vulnerable to targeted security

attacks by gaining access to the application’s features and data. The QA

professionals need to combine manual and automated ethical hacking

techniques to identify all security vulnerability in the application.

 But they must perform penetration testing continuously throughout

the software development life cycle (SDLC) to make the application

100% secure. That is why; it is important for software QA testing

professionals to know the pros and cons of handy penetration testing

tools.

Overview of 4 Widely Used Penetration Testing Tools

METASPLOIT

The commercial penetration testing tool supports Windows, Linux and

OS X. It can also be used for identifying the security vulnerabilities in web

application, servers and networks. Metasploit is designed based on a

concept called exploit. Exploit is written as a code that can enter the

targeted system by surpassing its security features. After entering into

the system, exploit run a code called payload additionally to perform a

variety of operations on the targeted system. Hence, Metasploit makes it

easier for testers to perform end-to-end penetration testing based on

custom code. At the same time, it allows testing professionals to use a

command-line tool and a GUI clickable interface.

wireshark

WIRESHARK

Wireshark is designed specifically as a network protocol analyzer. It enables

testers to gather in-depth information about a wide range of network protocols.

In addition to supporting multiple operating systems, Wireshark provides a

three-pane packet browser, reads and writes different capture file formats,

decompresses compressed file formats, and provides decryption support for

many protocols. Also, it allows users to browse the captured network data

efficiently, use advanced display filters, and simplify test data analysis by

applying color rules to packet lists.

W3AF

As a web application attack and audit framework, w3af is designed

with features to identify and exploit all vulnerabilities in web

applications. It supports Windows, Linux and OS X, and allows users to

choose from both console and graphical user interfaces. At the same

time, the tool allows users to integrate web and proxy servers into the

code. Also, it facilitates fast HTTP requests, along with allowing testers

to inject payloads into different types of HTTP requests.

core impact pro

CORE IMPACT PRO

The commercial penetration testing tool enables users to assess the

security of their software through advanced techniques used by cyber

criminals. Core Impact Pro further allows software QA testers to use

both command-line and GUI clickable interfaces. But it supports only

Windows platform. The testers can use Core Impact Pro to identify

security vulnerabilities in web application, mobile apps, and network

and network devices. The wireless penetration testing capabilities of the

tool further enables users to assess the vulnerability of the application

to the real-work security attacks executed over Wi-Fi networks.
