Part 10 – Best Practices

As a professional web app pentester, you must conduct yourself and your activities in an organized and professional manner. This is extremely important since your activities are virtually indistinguishable from a real attacker. The name of the game is to protect yourself!

Key components of pentesting best practices are:

  • Gain written permission about what, how, and when things will be tested.
  • Create documentation that records the tests such as output from wireshark and tcpdump along with logs about what you did.
  • Build reports about what was discovered and how to fix vulnerabilities.
  • Establish a good working relationship with other departments to stave off any potential misunderstandings during testing.
