Web Application Testing

What is Web Application Testing?

Web application testing measures the security posture of your website and/or custom developed application. Black Monocle performs full unauthenticated and authenticated testing based on strict OWASP guidelines. Our engineers focus on identifying weak points across the entire web application to ensure your applications and data stay safe. Testing activities include hunting OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities, website mapping and enumeration, testing for injection attacks (SQL, JavaScript, LDAP, etc.), testing for remote code execution, malicious file upload abuse testing, and more.

All testing performed follows the OWASP v4 guidelines and checklist.

The following tools are commonly used during our web application assessments:

  • Burp Suite Pro
  • Nessus Vulnerability Scanner
  • nmap
  • Nikto
  • Dirbuster / Dirb / Dirsearch
  • sqlmap
  • BeEF
  • Metasploit
  • Qualys SSL Scanner
  • BuiltWith / whatweb
  • Manual Review

Our Methodology

All testing performed is based on the NIST SP 800-115 Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment, OWASP Testing Guide (v4), and customized testing frameworks.

Planning – Customer goals are gathered and rules of engagement obtained.
Discovery – Perform scanning and enumeration to identify potential vulnerabilities, weak areas, and exploits.
Attack – Confirm potential vulnerabilities through exploitation and perform additional discovery upon new access.
Reporting – Document all found vulnerabilities and exploits, failed attempts, and company strengths and weaknesses.
