Penetration testing is the security-oriented probing of a computer system or network to seek out vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. The testing process involves an exploration of all the security features of the system or environment in question. Penetration of the system is followed by an intentional attempt to breach security controls, people or processes. The tester, sometimes known as an ethical hacker, generally uses the same methods and tools as a real attacker. Afterwards, the penetration testers report on the vulnerabilities and complexities with suggestions and steps that should be taken to make the system more secure.
