The Principles of Modern Attacks Analysis for Penetration Tester
Adam Ali.Zare Hudaib
Pages - 22 - 84     |    Revised - 01-03-2015     |    Published - 31-03-2015
Volume - 9   Issue - 2    |    Publication Date - March / April 2015  Table of Contents
Penetration Testing, DOS Attack, ICMP, IPv6, IPv4, NTP, Honey Pot Systems.
Modern cyber defense requires a realistic and thorough understanding of web application security issues. Anyone can learn to sling a few web hacks, but web application penetration testing requires something deeper. Major web application flaws and their exploitation, a field-tested and repeatable process to consistently finding these flaws and convey them will be discussed in this article. Modern attacks principles will be analyzed on purpose to create the most sufficient penetration tests.
