Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Infrastructure penetration testing is a simulated cyber attack that is conducted by ethical hackers to assess the security of an organization’s IT systems and networks. It is used to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the infrastructure that could be exploited by malicious actors and to recommend remediation measures to improve the overall security posture. The testing covers a range of areas including network devices, servers, applications, and operating systems, and often involves using a combination of manual and automated techniques to uncover potential security risks. This type of testing is crucial for organizations to stay ahead of emerging security threats and to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their critical assets.

The objective of infrastructure penetration testing is to identify security vulnerabilities in an organization’s IT systems and networks and to provide recommendations for remediation to improve the overall security posture.


In this activity, IT Security C&T will conduct a technical assessment against Customer IP Addresses to identify the weakness in the targeted system as well as the potential threats applicable. This will also raise organizational awareness of the likelihood and possible impact of attacks against Customer’s systems.

Tools: IT Security C&T team will use a manual/ automated approach in conducting Penetration Testing activities. Mainly Metasploit and backtrack tools will be utilized for this activity.

The following activities will be performed during this phase:

Phase 1
Phase 2
Phase 3
Phase 4
Phase 5
Phase 6
Executive Summary
A high-level overview of the testing methodology, findings, and recommendations, tailored to meet the needs of senior management and stakeholders.
Detailed Report
A comprehensive report that documents the testing methodology, findings, and recommendations in detail, including technical information and supporting evidence.
Risk Assessment
An assessment of the risk posed by identified vulnerabilities and a prioritization of recommended remediation measures based on their potential impact and likelihood of exploitation.
Remediation Recommendations
Recommendations for remediation measures that address the identified vulnerabilities and weaknesses, including recommended solutions, timeline, and resources required.
Evidence of Testing
Documentation and evidence of the testing conducted, including screenshots, logs, and detailed test case descriptions, to support the findings and recommendations.
Follow-up Support
Ongoing support and consultation to assist with the implementation of remediation measures, as well as periodic follow-up testing to assess the effectiveness of the measures taken.
The deliverables of infrastructure penetration testing are designed to provide organizations with actionable insights and recommendations to improve their overall security posture, and to help them protect their critical assets and data.
