Web Application Penetration Testing Services

Marko Jovovic
ElanWave offers Penetration Testing Services, specifically designed to meet web application needs. The engagement includes a very comprehensive report with details around vulnerabilities, and solutions to cover all your security requirements, focusing on OWASP top 10.
What is Web Application Penetration Testing?
Web application penetration testing is the process of using penetration testing techniques on a web application to detect its vulnerabilities. It is similar to a penetration test and aims to break into the web application using any penetration attacks or threats.

“Web application penetration testing works by using manual or automated penetration tests to identify any vulnerability, security flaws or threats in a web application. The tests involve using/implementing any of the known malicious penetration attacks on the application. The penetration tester exhibits/fabricates attacks and environment from an attacker’s perspective, such as using SQL injection tests. The web application penetration testing key outcome is to identify security weakness across the entire web application and its components (source code, database, back-end network). It also helps in prioritizing the identified vulnerabilities and threats, and possible ways to mitigate them.”

ElanWave Web Applications Penetration Testing Services
The Penetration Testing services provided by ElanWave cover a wide range of both internally and externally exposed environments. Conducting penetration testing on a regular basis helps ensure the security of the target environment from current threats and helps to meet regulatory requirements. While modern frameworks implement several ‘secure by default’ settings, application layer vulnerabilities and configuration flaws are continuously being discovered or expanded on. Testing performed by our experienced application security team adheres to our internally developed methodologies, which are regularly updated and reviewed to always ensure coverage of new vulnerabilities and attack methods.

How it works?
The hosting server, application and API layer are tested for vulnerabilities including configuration, transport layer, and application-layer specific flaws. Initial reconnaissance is performed using automated means to ensure comprehensive coverage and enumeration of known framework or server flaws. Following the initial enumeration stage, our experienced application security team members conduct manual penetration testing following a methodology that utilizes the OWASP standards as a base minimum. This ensures coverage of application specific logic flaws as well as all known web application security bug classes, such as authentication and authorization flaws; injection issues such as SQL injection, XML entity attacks, and cross site scripting; cross-user and cross-tenant data access issues; role-based access control flaws; and attempts to subvert business rules and logic.

What is OWASP Testing Methodology?
Security testing will never be an exact science where a complete list of all possible issues that should be tested can be defined. Indeed, security testing is only an appropriate technique for testing the security of web applications under certain circumstances. The goal of this project is to collect all the possible testing techniques, explain these techniques, and keep the guide updated. The OWASP Web Application Security Testing method is based on the black box approach. The tester knows nothing or has very little information about the application to be tested.

The set of active tests have been split into 11 sub-categories:
• Information Gathering
• Configuration and Deployment Management Testing
• Identity Management Testing
• Authentication Testing
• Authorisation Testing
• Session Management Testing
• Input Validation Testing
• Error Handling
• Cryptography
• Business Logic Testing
• Client Side Testing

Have a word with our experts, and we will guide you through the entire process, from information gathering to the pen-testing, and report writing towards the end of the engagement, as well as some possible solutions. Talk to us #pentest #webapppentest
