Network Penetration Testing
Network Penetration Testing The primary objective for a network penetration test is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in networks, systems, hosts and network devices (ie: routers, switches) before hackers are able to discover and exploit them. Network penetration testing will reveal real-world opportunities for hackers to be able to compromise systems and networks in such a way that allows for unauthorized access to sensitive data or even take-over systems for malicious/non-business purposes.

Network Penetration Testing Checklist
- Information Gathering- The Network Penetration Process begins with a comprehensive survey of your network including architecture mapping and a complete network scan.
- Scanning: The testing process continues with port scanning and war dialing that includes scanning open ports, closed ports, and filtered ports.
- Fingerprinting: After scans are complete, OS fingerprinting is conducted evaluating OS type, patch level, and system type followed by protocol identification.
- Vulnerability Scanning: Once fingerprinting is concluded, a vulnerability scan is completed using automated scanning with access to a vulnerability database, where any vulnerabilities and exploits are verified.
- Exploit Verification: Using manual verification and password cracking, available exploits are checked and retested if necessary to validate results before reports are produced.
- Reports : On conclusion of a network penetration test, comprehensive reports are created to provide findings, suggest solutions, and make recommendations.

Benefits of Network Penetration Testing:
- Reveal vulnerabilities: Penetration testing explores existing weaknesses in your system or application configurations and network infrastructure. Even actions and habits of your staff that could lead to data breaches and malicious infiltration are being researched during penetration tests. A report informs you on your security vulnerabilities so you know what software and hardware improvements you have to consider or what recommendations and policies would improve the overall security.
- Show real risks: Penetration testers try to exploit identified vulnerabilities. That means you see what an attacker could do in the ‘real world’. They might access sensitive data and execute operating system commands. But they might also tell you that a vulnerability that is theoretically high risk isn’t that risky at all because of the difficulty of exploitation. Only a specialist can perform that type of analysis.
- Test your cyber-defence capability: You should be able to detect attacks and respond adequately and on time. Once you detect an intrusion, you should start investigations, discover the intruders and block them. Whether they are malicious, or experts testing the effectiveness of your protection strategy. The feedback from the test will tell you if – but more likely what – actions can be taken to improve your defence.
