In this stage we perform detailed reconnaissance about the application, its architecture, features and security controls. Certain inputs are also sought from the Dev team.
Based on the information collected we devise a full scale “Red Team” approach to mimic real time attacks. To minimise impact we plan the attack, either on dummy environment or during times of lowest network activity (lowest traffic).
In this stage, we run vulnerability scanners to look for possible vulnerabilities and common vulnerabilities related to the platform, APIs, technology framework etc.
Here we run exploits on the application to evaluate its security. We use custom scripts, open source exploits and in-house tools to achieve high degree of penetration.
We generate concise and succinct reports of the vulnerabilities discovered along with discussion on the nature of vulnerability, its impact, threat level and recommendation to remove the vulnerability.
Our technical experts discuss the report, along with the bugs found, and their impact scenario with the development team of the client. Comprehensive discussions are carried out on how to remove the vulnerabilities and harden the application.
