A penetration test involves the simulation of real-world attack techniques by ethical hackers in a secure environment. This test helps identify potential weak points and enables proactive measures against potential threats. It is crucial for maintaining the security of your system, ensuring the safety of customer and user data, preventing reputational and financial losses, and ensuring compliance with legal regulations.

Penetration tests are conducted in a secure and controlled environment by ethical hackers and expert teams. Such security tests do not cause harm to the systems being tested.

Black Box Penetration Testing simulates a scenario in which the attacker has no prior knowledge. This creates a scenario where the attacker attempts to gain external access to the system to assess the effectiveness of the system’s defense.

In Gray Box testing, a scenario is simulated in which the attacker has limited internal knowledge. This type of test provides limited access to the internal structure and some details of the system being tested.

White Box testing, on the other hand, provides full access to all details and the internal structure of the system being tested. This type of test involves a detailed examination and analysis of all vulnerabilities and security flaws in the system.

The complexity of the project or system, security requirements, budget, and time constraints are important factors in determining the appropriate type of penetration test. More complex, critical, and sensitive systems may generally be more suitable for white box testing, while simpler systems may suffice with black box testing. More comprehensive and detailed tests often require more time and resources, while black box testing may be preferred for faster results.

These types of tests are used to assess the security level of the system by simulating different scenarios based on the attacker’s level of knowledge. Taking these factors into account, we provide our clients with a detailed requirements report during the initial consultation to help determine the most suitable type of penetration test.

The penetration testing process includes the following steps:

  1. Target Definition: First, the scope and objectives of the test are determined. It is planned which systems, networks, or applications will be tested and which types of attack scenarios will be simulated.
  2. Authorization: Necessary permissions and authorizations for penetration testing are obtained. This step ensures that the test is conducted in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
  3. Information Gathering: Prior to the test, as much information as possible about the target systems and networks is collected. This enables the test to be conducted more effectively and efficiently.
  4. Creation of Attack Scenarios: Different attack scenarios are created for the test. These scenarios aim to identify the security vulnerabilities of the system by simulating real-world attack techniques.
  5. Implementation of Penetration Testing: Penetration testing is carried out in accordance with the created attack scenarios. Ethical hackers or security experts identify security vulnerabilities by launching attacks on the system.
  6. Reporting: The test results are reported in detail. The identified security vulnerabilities and recommended solutions are reported, outlining the steps to be taken to enhance the system’s security.

This process is important for assessing the security level of the system and identifying security vulnerabilities.

  1. System and Network Information: Details of the systems and networks to be tested, technical details such as IP addresses, server information, etc., should be shared.
  2. Expectations and Objectives: You should clearly express your expectations and the objectives you aim to achieve during the penetration testing process.
  3. Legal and Regulatory Information: If your project has legal and regulatory requirements, there may be information that needs to be shared in this regard.

Sharing this information is important for the efficient and effective execution of the penetration testing process. During the initial consultation with our expert team member, you will receive guidance on securely sharing your information.

The following types of attack scenarios are typically examined within the scope of penetration testing:

Network Attacks: Attack scenarios conducted over the network are examined. This may include unauthorized access to network traffic, compromising network devices, and similar situations.

Web Application Attacks: Attack scenarios targeting web-based applications are examined. This may include attack types such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).

Physical Security Attacks: Attack scenarios that could be carried out through physical access are examined. This may include attempts to damage computer systems or network infrastructure through physical access.

Social Engineering Attacks: Attack scenarios aimed at manipulating users to obtain sensitive information are examined. This may include tactics such as phishing emails and phone scams.

Examining these scenarios allows for the identification of security vulnerabilities in the tested systems from different perspectives. This enables the overall security level of the system to be assessed and necessary measures to be taken.

  1. Remediation of Security Vulnerabilities: Updates can be made to relevant systems to address identified security vulnerabilities and flaws, software errors can be corrected, and configuration settings can be reviewed.
  2. Reinforcement of Firewalls: Based on the results of penetration testing, network security firewalls and other security measures can be strengthened, and if necessary, new security measures can be added to enhance the defense mechanisms of the network.
  3. Staff Training: Training programs can be organized to increase employee security awareness based on the results of penetration testing, and security policies can be reviewed.
  4. Updating Emergency Plans: Based on the results of penetration testing, emergency plans for potential security breaches can be updated, and crisis management processes can be reviewed.
  5. System Monitoring and Logging: Based on the results of penetration testing, system monitoring and logging processes can be strengthened, and a more effective infrastructure for the detection and intervention of security events can be established.

These measures can be taken based on the results of penetration testing to enhance the security level of the system and minimize potential security risks.

Penetration testing is performed by Hackdra ethical hackers and expert security team.
