Security Testing Methodology
One of the most important tasks in an application pen test is reconnaissance, often known as information gathering. In a web application penetration test, the initial phase is all about gathering as much information as possible about the target application. Few examples of testing: Conduct Search Engine Reconnaissance and Discovery for Information Leakage, Search Engine Recon, App Enumeration, and App Fingerprinting Determine the app’s entrance point.
Understanding the deployed configuration of the server/infrastructure that hosts the web application is almost as important as performing application security testing. Although application platforms are diverse, several fundamental platform configuration issues, like how an unsecured program can compromise the server (insecure HTTP methods, old/backup files), can endanger the application. Few examples are – TLS Security, App Platform Configuration, File Extension Handling, and Cross Site Tracing. HTTP tight transport security, HTTP methods, and file permissions are all tested.
The process of attempting to validate the digital identity of a communication’s sender is known as authentication. The log on process is the most common example of such a procedure. Understanding how the authentication process works and using that knowledge to defeat the authentication mechanism is what testing the authentication schema entails. Few examples are – Poor lockout mechanism, bypassing authentication schema, browser cache weakness, and weak authentication in alternative channel.
Authorization is a step that follows successful authentication; therefore, the pen tester will confirm this after confirming that he or she has legitimate credentials that are associated with a well-defined set of roles and privileges. Few Examples are Directory traversal, privilege escalation and bypassing authorization controls, and insecure direct object reference. Understanding how the authorization process works and exploiting that knowledge to go around the authorization system is what authorization testing entails.
DATA INPUT VALIDATION
TESTING FOR ERROR HANDLING
During a web application penetration test, we frequently run into a slew of error codes emitted by apps or web servers. It’s possible to display these problems by utilizing a specific request, either built manually or with the help of tools. These codes are extremely beneficial to penetration testers since they expose a wealth of information about databases, flaws, and other technological components that are directly tied to web applications. Few examples are -Analyzing Error Codes and Analyzing Stack Traces.
TESTING FOR BUSINESS LOGIC
CLIENT- SIDE TESTING
DENIAL OF SERVICE (OPTIONAL)
A denial of service (DoS) attack aims to prevent legitimate users from accessing a resource. Denial of service (DoS) attacks have traditionally been network-based, in which a malicious user floods a target system with enough traffic to render it unable to serve its intended users. This phase of. testing will concentrate on application layer attacks on availability that can be carried out by a single rogue user on a single system.
The goal of the reporting step is to deliver, rank, and prioritize findings, as well as to provide a clear and actionable report with supporting evidence for project stakeholders. This is the most critical phase for us at Kratikal, and we take great care to make sure we’ve clearly explained the value of our service and discoveries.
We use industry benchmark security testing tools across each of the IT infrastructure as per the business and technical requirements.
Below are few from many of the tools we use:
