  • What is penetration testing?
  • Who uses it and why?
  • Penetration testing tools
  • Demo
what is penetration testing
What is Penetration Testing?
  • Goal: identify holes in computer security
  • Penetration testing is identification of vulnerabilities.
  • Penetration testing may or may not include exploitation.
what is penetration testing1
What is Penetration Testing?

There are two sources of vulnerabilities to which penetration testing may be applied:

  • Human
    • Physical access to computing systems
    • Untrained / poor decisions
    • Hard to “fix”
  • Non-human
    • Open/unprotected ports
    • Poor passwords
    • Website vulnerabilities (XSS, etc.)
who uses p enetration t esting
Who Uses Penetration Testing?
  • Most major companies perform penetration testing on their own services.
      • average loss is $5.5 million(not including value of data stolen!)
      • FICO - continually pen testing
  • Data vulnerability management Market
    • $400.5 million in 2011
    • $1 billion expected in 2016 (Businessweek)
    • Penetration testing is more than just using tools.

Penetration Testing
  • Penetration tester Kevin Bong developed the “Mini Pwner:” a computer the size of an Altoidstin.
  • After being plugged into a company’s Ethernet port,Mini Pwner:
    • Runs simple scanning tools,
    • Maps a company’s network,
    • Creates a VPN connection so ahacker can connect to the router’swifi, and run further exploitationtools. (Forbes, 2012)

  • “The easiest way to get into a company is still to walk in looking professional and talk your way into a wiring closet”

- Kevin Bong, Synercomm penetration tester

penetration testing tools
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Port Scanners
  • Vulnerability Scanners
  • Application Scanners
penetration testing tools1
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Port Scanners
    • Gather info from a test target from a remote network location.
    • They tell us what network services are available for connection
    • Probes each of the target’s ports or services
      • Scans both TCP/UDP
      • Probing with TCP allows scanners to find out what OS is running
penetration testing tools2
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Port ScannersCommon Port Scanners include
    • Nmap
    • Angry IP Scanner
    • Superscan
    • NetScanTools
    • Unicornscan
penetration testing tools3
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Vulnerability Scanners
    • Tests the vulnerabilities on target system.
    • Not only collects data about ports, it tests the ports.
penetration testing tools4
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Commonly used Vulnerability Scanners
    • Nessus
    • Core Impact
    • Nexpose
    • QualysGuard
    • Retina
    • Nipper
    • SAINT
penetration testing tools5
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Application Scanners
    • Targets web based applications
    • Probes each page of an web-based application and attempts common attacks on each page of the application.
  • Tests for the potential to attack:
    • Buffer overruns
    • Cookie manipulation
    • SQL injection
    • XSS
penetration testing tools6
Penetration Testing Tools
  • Commonly used Application Scanners
    • Appscan
    • Nikto
    • WebInspect
    • w3af
    • Paros proxy
    • WebScarab
    • sqlmap
    • skipfish
the future of penetration testing
The Future of Penetration Testing
  • Idappcom developed software Traffic IQ as an attempt to replace penetration testing companies.
    • Data comes from Sourcefire, McAfee, Juniper, Cisco, etc.
    • Exploits come from Metasploit, Packetstorm and SecurityFocus forums.
    • Can be continually run, rather than “snapshot” penetration testing.
    • (Just another tool.)
penetration test demo
Penetration Test Demo
  • Tool we will use: Nmap

Goal: discover and gather information on open ports and vulnerabilities on target systems in this laboratory.

Nmap Demo Recap






  • Penetration testing must look for both the human and non-human weaknesses of a system.
  • Penetration test your own system before someone else does!
  • Penetration testing tools are useful, but their power is incomplete. Experience is the best tool.
  • What is penetration testing?
  • Who uses it and why?
  • Types of penetration testing tools
    • Port Scanners
    • Vulnerability Scanners
    • Application Scanners
  • Nmap demo
  • Nmap
  • Hacker's Tiny Spy Computer Cracks Corporate Networks, Fits In An Altoid “Tin”
  • “FICO Hacks Itself to Prevent Cybercriminal Attacks “
  • “Organisations can stay cyber secure with fixed-price penetration testing”
  • “Idappcom seeks to displace penetration testers”
