Grey box penetration testing is a type of security testing that involves testing a system or network with partial knowledge of its internal structure and design. The goal of grey box testing is to identify vulnerabilities and security weaknesses in the system by simulating an attacker who has limited access to the system's internal details.
During a grey box penetration test, the tester is provided with some, but not all, of the information about the system's internal structure and design. This may include access to some, but not all, of the system's source code, architecture, and design documents. The tester is expected to use this partial knowledge, along with other tools and techniques, to probe the system and identify vulnerabilities.
The advantage of grey box testing is that it allows the tester to use a combination of external and internal information to identify vulnerabilities that may not be detectable through black box testing. Grey box testing can be more effective than black box testing in some cases, as it allows the tester to leverage their knowledge of the system's internal structure to identify vulnerabilities that may not be apparent from the external interface. However, grey box testing can be more resource-intensive and time-consuming than black box testing, as it requires the tester to have a certain level of knowledge about the system's internal structure. This type of testing is great for testing an application, such as a web app or company built app.
Our white box testing process is as follows:
Planning --> Discovery --> Vulnerability Analysis --> Exploitation --> Cleaning --> Reporting
