Web Application Penetration

Web Application Penetration Testing (WAPT) is a critical exercise aimed at identifying security vulnerabilities within web applications. These vulnerabilities can stem from insecure coding practices, underlying technologies, frameworks, or misconfigurations. Our testing provides a comprehensive snapshot of your application’s security posture at the time of assessment.

WAPT at Securityium focuses on thoroughly evaluating the security of your web applications. Our team identifies and addresses vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), and authentication bypass. We adhere strictly to the OWASP Top 10 guidelines and other industry standards, ensuring an in-depth analysis of your web applications. By leveraging a blend of commercial, open-source, and proprietary tools, we emphasize a manual approach to uncovering intricate, business-related security issues that automated tools might miss.

Approach

Our penetration tests encompass two main methodologies: Black Box Testing and Grey Box Testing.

Black Box Testing: Simulates external attacks without access to the application's source code or user accounts. This approach tests how an external hacker could manipulate inputs to elicit unexpected behaviours.

Grey Box Testing: Conducted with 'admin/standard' user privileges, simulating insider or registered user attacks with the goal of escalating privileges.

    Vulnerability Assessment

    Perform manual and automated scans to detect common web vulnerabilities.

  • img

    Exploitation

    Exploit identified vulnerabilities to understand their impact and potential exploitability

Frequently Asked Questions

img

The objective is to identify and mitigate threats targeting web applications, ensuring their security against sophisticated attacks.

These vulnerabilities are identified through thorough manual testing, automated scanning, and in-depth analysis of the application code and logic.

Key steps include reconnaissance, vulnerability scanning, manual testing, authentication assessment, and reporting.

It helps by identifying and fixing critical vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers.

Organizations should prioritize fixing identified vulnerabilities, implement secure coding practices, conduct regular security audits, and deploy web application firewalls.
