Security Testing

Security testing is a process intended to reveal flaws in the security mechanisms of an information system that protect data and maintain functionality as intended.
Web Application Security Test
Provides a comprehensive assessment of the security of the web application and the mobile devices used to interact with the application.
TCP Port Scan
Network ports are the entry points to a machine that is connected to the Internet. A service that listens on a port is able to receive data from a client application, process it and send a response back.
Web Vulnerability Scan
Open-source security application which can scan web applications for known security issues, like vulnerabilities included in the OWASP Top 10 security bugs.
Error handling
Testing for error handling includes:
- check for error codes: For example, test 408 request time-out, 400 bad requests, 404 not found, etc.
