Part 5 – Vulnerability Scans and Penetration Testing

This lesson focuses on vulnerability scans and penetration testing which is also referred to as pen tests. This unit focuses on: • White Box Testing (aka structural analysis) • Black Box Testing White box testing allows full access to source code, design documents, use and misuse cases as well as configuration files. Whereas in black box testing, there is no knowledge of code and relies on methods such as fuzzing, scanning and penetration testing.
