What is Flaw Hypothesis Methodology? 


Flaw Hypothesis Methodology is the system analysis and penetration technique in which the specification and documentation for an information system are analyzed to produce a list of hypothetical flaws.  This list is prioritized on the basis of the estimated probability that a flaw exists, on the ease of exploiting it, and on the extent of control or compromise it would provide.  The prioritized list is used to perform penetration testing of a system.
