Web Security Testing Preparation
Our Security Assessment Process involves various stages. Key stages of the application security testing are outlined below:
1. Understand the application
The first stage of the web application security testing is to understand the web application. Our team will analyse the application functionality, user roles, business logic and the application structure. If code review is involved, application code base is reviewed. This process helps our ethical hacking team identify the attack vectors potentially used by hackers.
2. Threat Model
The next stage of an application security test is to create a threat profile of the application. Our threat models are based on your business case for application security requirement. This leads to customized security testing which goes above and beyond the generic web application penetration testing.
Web Application Security Testing
Once the application profile is defined and threat vectors are identified, the security testing team will move the activities to the next stage.
3. Create Web Application Security Test Plan
The web application security test plan provides the testing approach to be used to perform the security tests. The test plan will address the potential approachs to exploit vulnerabilities that would result in compromising user privileges, business logic, transactions or exposing sensitive data.
4. Perform Application Penetration Tests
In this stage, ValueMentor security testing team executes the application security test plan. However, unlike software testing, the output of a security test is not always as pre-defined and hence the plan needs continuous updates as it evolves.
ValueMentor Security testers utilizing their extensive experience pivots the plan to simulate real hackers. This ultimately leads to finding more vulnerabilities that may lead to breaches
Application Security Reports
Application Security reports provides the insights for management and technical team on the application tested. The reporting phase has two stages
5. Identify remedial actions
The vulnerabilities are ranked based on various factors. The factors are not just the universal ranking of the vulnerability, but also include considerations such as exploitability, availability of public exploits, ease of exploitation etc.
Our analysts will then identify the solutions to fix the vulnerability identified. WE will provide the guidance, if required, to the development team to fix the vulnerabilities.
Our application security reports provides actionable information that is suitable for both management and technical teams. Our reports include the following:
- Detailed report which contains Findings and Recommendation on Fixes
- CSV file containing all the reported vulnerabilities for easier internal distribution.
- Automated scan results from scanners.
