Reasons

for a

Pentest

Every Redlings pentest is subject to strict guidelines and ethical principles.

1

Implementation of Security Policy

Are important patches missing or are applications and operating systems not hardened? If your pentesters can show that applications and network areas with good implementation have fewer security vulnerabilities, this often has the effect of motivating them to follow the security guidelines.

2

Protect your most important data and the trust of your customers

Company and customer data is considered the lifeblood of a business and can be extremely damaging in the wrong hands. With a pentest, your company can better protect its data assets and, if possible, prevent attacks.

3

Compliance requirements

Regulations such as PCI-DSS, but also ISO 27001/2 and others, may require regular penetration tests. Some contractual regulations may also contain such a requirement.

4

Training of the internal IT team

The results of a pentest support the own team - e.g. system admins - to avoid some error sources in the future. A penetration test can reveal errors in configuration and programming.

5

Increase the effectiveness of your security investments

Our pentesters are certified experts in their field and often uncover ways in which existing (and paid for) security technologies can be better leveraged and protective efficacy enhanced.

6

Detection of vulnerabilities

Penetration tests attack your network and web applications like a hacker would - but without causing any damage. This allows you to find and fix vulnerabilities before the attackers do.

7

Priorisierung von IT-Risiken

With a penetration test you can determine which existing vulnerabilities have the greatest impact on your web applications and network. on your web applications and network. Use your resources and time more efficiently.

8

Konsequenzen eines Understand Cybersecurity Incidents

Penetration testing gives you unvarnished feedback on the possible consequences of an IT security incident such as a ransomware attack.

9

Evidence-based investment

Investments in security measures should always be supported with concrete evidence to demonstrate the value to the business. By showing your leadership team the value of an investment, you can justify your need for more resources

Steps for a Penetration Test

1

Kick-Off

The project schedule is planned and prepared during the joint kick-off meeting. Among other things, the following points will be discussed:

  • Contact information exchange
  • Start and end date, test time window if applicable
  • Confirmation of the exact scope of the project
  • Presentation of the test item
  • Providing information for the testers (e.g. API documentation in case of an API test)
  • Agreement on the test environment and procedures
2

Penetration Test Execution

Now the security test takes place. Here, it usually consists of one (or more) commissioned test modules.

  • Pentest Network (internal)
  • Pentest Network (external)
  • Web Application & Web-API penetration test
  • Cloud Penetration Testing
  • Active Directory Security Assessment
  • IoT/Hardware Security Assessment
  • Social Engineering
  • Red Teaming
3

Report

The test results are compiled in a report. This will include, among others, the sections listed below:

  • Short version of the results and presentation of the framework parameters
  • List and presentation of the detected security issues with assessment of the risk as well as suggestions for correction
  • Detailed documentation of discovered security vulnerabilities
4

Concluding Meeting

The results of the performed pentest are discussed in a final meeting. We are aware that the aware that the security problems found are only a first step. Concrete follow-up measures to to increase security must be defined and implemented.

Häufige Fragen

What is a penetration test?

A penetration test, or "pentest" for short, is a security check that emulates an attack by a malicious party on a network or application to identify security vulnerabilities. This test is coordinated in advance and conducted in such a way that no system is damaged. At the end of the test, you will receive a report that includes the problems and vulnerabilities found, along with suggestions on how to fix them.

How is a vulnerability scan different from a penetration test?

Unlike penetration testing, vulnerability assessment does not determine in detail whether the vulnerability can actually be exploited or what impact it has. A vulnerability scan usually uses automated vulnerability scanners such as Nessus or even Nmap. Vulnerability scanners only cover standard scenarios and do not take into account the specifics of the IT infrastructure in question.

Vulnerability scans are therefore more of a first step in the technical analysis of vulnerabilities than a complete process for securing systems. They are also often used as part of a security audit or as one of the first steps in penetration testing. In all cases, penetration testing goes further and examines the discovered vulnerabilities in detail.

The pentester attempts to exploit the vulnerabilities and assess the resulting opportunities for the attacker. This helps determine the impact of a vulnerability. Due to the manual nature of a penetration test and the creativity of the pentester, the chances of finding serious vulnerabilities are much higher with professionally conducted penetration tests than with standardized vulnerability scans.

What is a black box test?

In black-box testing, the pentester attempts to attack the target without any prior knowledge of addresses, systems, applications and processes. The main argument for this approach is that this scenario comes closest to the real world and thus simulates a real attack scenario. However, this is only partially true because a real attacker does not have just a week or two like a contracted pentester, but has the entire time, including months or years, to prepare the attack. In fact, some of the most successful hacker attacks have taken place over a period of up to 12 months.
This bias means that black-box testing is often inconclusive and gives customers a false sense of security. Redlings therefore recommends black-box testing only in exceptional cases. The argument that attackers (must) implement a black-box approach also only works to a limited extent, since a long preparation time can lead to extensive internal informtions.

What is a white box test?

In a white-box test, the pentester receives all relevant information about the target system(s). The advantage is that this approach saves time - and thus costs. It is also generally true that white-box tests are more effective in improving the security of IT systems and should usually be preferred.
Generally speaking, black-box testing can be a suitable means of uncovering security issues against a specification (e.g., a Web API interface), but is very poorly suited to identifying flaws within specific components. In the latter case, white-box testing should be the preferred means.

What do we need to provide before a pentest?

At the beginning of the process, we try to familiarize ourselves with your company and the scope of work so that we are able to provide an accurate quote. We gather this information on purpose so that we don't come back and ask for more testing time (and additional costs). The more information you are willing to share with us, the better we can provide an estimate.

However, some customers want a black box approach, where only a limited amount of information is provided, to simulate a real attack and the response to it. In this case, we still need to capture the size/complexity, that is required for testing, and therefore have some fundamental questions about scope.

Ethical hacker, penetration tester, and white hat hacker - what's the difference?

The terms "penetration tester" (also "pentester" for short), "white hat hacker" and "ethical hacker" are often used interchangeably. The terms "ethical hacker" and "white hat hacker" cover all hacking activity aimed at improving IT security. What they all have in common is that activities that are illegal or do not comply with the Code of Ethics are refrained from.
Formally, a penetration test is only an "ethical hack" with very clearly agreed rules, a formal procedure as well as a defined goal.
