Black box penetration testing is a type of security testing that involves testing a system or network without any prior knowledge of its internal structure or design. The goal of black box testing is to identify vulnerabilities and security weaknesses in the system by simulating an attacker who has no knowledge of the system except for its external interface.
During a black box penetration test, the tester may use various tools and techniques to probe the system and try to identify vulnerabilities. This may include techniques such as scanning for open ports, attempting to guess passwords, or trying to inject malicious code into the system.
The advantage of black box testing is that it simulates the perspective of a real-world attacker who has no inside knowledge of the system. This can help organizations identify vulnerabilities that might be missed by other types of testing. However, black box testing can be more time-consuming and resource-intensive than other types of testing, as it requires the tester to start from scratch and figure out the system's structure and vulnerabilities through trial and error.
A Black Box Penetration Test is typically completed as an external penetration test against a company's Internet-facing systems:
Our black box testing process is as follows:
Planning --> Discovery --> Vulnerability Analysis --> Exploitation --> Cleaning --> Reporting
