You can consider cyber security testing that helps to eliminate the risks, threats, any glitches from the software application and protects malicious attacks that hackers commit in the digital world.

Penetration testing is also called ethical hacking or pen-testing. That is the practice of testing a network, computer system, or web application to detect security loopholes that an attacker could misuse.

Several Types of Penetration Testing

Three types of Penetration Testing are very popular and are considered by companies to fulfill the cyber security testing standards of different business niches.

  • White Box Penetration Testing
  • Black Box Penetration Testing
  • Grey Box Penetration Testing

Cyber Security Test Tools:

There are numerous types of cyber security testing tools. e.g.

# Metasploit

# Wireshark

# Netsparker

# Grabber

Under the security testing of web applications, the tester follow the below stated steps:

• Understand and identify the security needs of an application
• Collect all the information regarding setup that is used for developing the web app and network, such as technology, hardware, etc.
• Determine the possible risks and vulnerabilities and make a list
• Make a threat profile based on the list
• Prepare a test plan according to the identified possible risks and vulnerabilities
• Prepare a Traceability Matrix for each risk and vulnerability
